Thanks to all the genius gifted folks, I am able to
benefit fromall of your labors.  Any clues about the
route that runs out thomasville road from village
square north to kerry forest and target.  Used to be
80x I think.  Smack in the middle of shamrock south,
east west and north, I think the bus would not be any
closer.
Magic my guide german shepherd walks me five miles but
we do not cross thomassbille at kerry forest for the
pleasure of  Walmart.
Oh well so many other things to do.

Hi Chip,

I have the sendero GPS and would be willing to give it
a try.  Also does the 
file format you have work with Google maps or any of
the other numerous 
android GPS maps.  Most of them require internet or
phone carrier access. 
You can download the maps for Google maps to your
device and use the GPS 
receiver for tracking.
