I have a Garmin GPSMAP 65s.  I want to export a GPX file of a 150+ mile trip from this website and import it into my Maps page on the Garmin website.  The Garmin website has a maximum 500 point limit for GPX files and my trip has 2000+ points.  I'd like to work around this by having one GPX file for each day of my trip (planned for 15 days total).  Is there a way to export only one day of a multiday trip to GPX?

That is a good idea, and I will implement it. 

However, are you exporting the GPX file with the campsites or without the campsites? I generally find that the problem happens when you are exporting with campsites.

The problem happens when I try to include nearby campsites in the GPX file.  The process works successfully if I don't include the campsites in the GPX export.

You can get the campsites in a separate GPX file. This is usually what I do.

I've run into the same issue but found a simple workaround. I create a trip for the first day and then export it as a GPX file then upload it to Garmin. Repeat for days 2 through the end of your trip.

If a better solution is offered through a software fix on this site...that would be great!
