Home and Routes GPS downloads Useful Info & Links About this website Ordnance Survey map
You should be able to download route files for your GPS unit from the Google map embedded in each route's web page. Details may differ according to the device you are using. I am familiar with Windows desktop PC and Android devices, but the same principles should apply for other systems (Apple Mac, iPad etc).

You download and use this data entirely at your own risk.

On a Windows PC, go to the Google map on the route's web page, and open it in a separate window by clicking on the expansion icon in the top right corner. From the Google Maps menu, click the three dots on the legend pane: this should show a drop down menu: chose 'Download KML'. This will download the route file (and probably also the various 'places of interest' icons on the map) to a file on your computer. Most GPS units use GPX format, so you will have to convert the KML file to GPX using a website such as GPS Visualizer

On Android devices, the principle is the same, but you must open the map in the web based Google Maps in the device's internet browser, not the Google Maps App, which does not support the download facility. Your device may already give you the choice to select between the two options. If not, try going to Settings>Application Manager>Maps>Set as Default>Go to Supported URLs: set to 'always ask'.
