2012 PZ Map
Available for download are 2 versions of the 2012 PZ Map.
The first version is the geospatial PDF document that can be used spatially on a computer and on an iPhone or iPad. A geospatial PDF file is a georeferenced PDF file that contains locational information and upon which locations can be found in real world co-ordinates and real distances and areas can be measured. The second version is a .jpg file that has been requested by some of our pilots.

Version Two: The .jpg version of the 2012 PZ Map
The following is provided by Keith Sproul for use on Garmin GPS Units.
GARMIN GPS INSTRUCTIONS
This works with the TRAIL series of Garmin GPS's such as the following:
Newer ETREX models such as the Etrex 10, Etrex 20 and Etrex 30 GPSMap 62 GPSMap 78 and others
Download the GPX file into the GPS
First, you can use Garmin BaseCamp
( http://www.garmin.com/us/products/onthetrail/basecamp )
Or, you can simply copy the file over to the GPS.
This second way is the quicker way.
Connect the GPS to your computer using the USB cable. It will come up just like a thumb-drive.
Copy the GPX file into the GPX directory on the GPS. This is in the following location
It is perfectly okay to have several different GPX files in this directory. There will already be a couple of sub-folders in here, namely 'Current' and 'Nav'.
Once the GPX file is copied over, disconnect the GPS from your computer and turn it back on.
The Waypoints show up automatically, but the 'TRACKS' have to be turned on one-by-one. This is a little tedious, but it goes quickly, and only has to be done once.
To make the tracks show up on the display, go to Track Manager, then you have to select each track individually and select "SHOW ON MAP"
