O-ing, I used your gps route to check the Routegadget load - looks like map needs a bit of work around #1 & #2.

the raw splits file shows a lot of 'here's a control - punch it first then check the number". In a couple of cases there were so many additional punches out of sequence that I think the event software got confused and incorrectly listed a 'mp'

Thanks! I was going to say the map needed a bit of work around 11-18, but I think it was "good enough". The uncrossable walls probably need to be a bit thicker on the next edition (lots of people punched 18 from above which involved reaching over the top of the wall).
I'm using the Garmin 235 and as Jagge says these newer wrist GPSs seem to be much less accurate. The worst example is my track from 14 to 15 which is nowhere near like what I actually did (basically straight and down the steps). In fact the GPS track is so bad I'm not even sure which of the two flights of steps I actually went down.

the map does need a bit of work - mainly to line it up with magnetic north rather than grid north, and maybe some detail.
The routegadget map image is from a scanned map on Facebook, so not as crisp as a copy from the OCAD file, but it was the quickest way to get something on-line.
