Hi Richard,
I've just tried transferring to my Oregon 450 and can see what you mean. The problem is that the GPX is set up as a route (which has a limited number of points) rather than a track (which has a much bigger limit). If you convert the route to a track before sending to the GPS then all should be fine. I can do this easily enough in memory-map - if you don't have any software to do it then I can send you another GPX - just let me know an email address.
Mark

Mark,tried all that and every other way I can get it to my desktop but when I download to my GPS which is a garmin oragon 400,it goes to route planner and as so many waypoints are used only goes to the checkpoint after abdon burf .it needs to go to track manager to be any use,have you downloaded it to your gps?

Worked fine for me - just right click on the link and 'save as' to download the file. You should then be able to open it in your mapping software or send to your GPS.
