The map has various layers, and wouldnt be surprised if that gate was under another, or a billboard.

I got all the smashes very easily. I only used the map to get the last 3 in white mountain as they were driving me insane.

The majority of them come in pairs, some of them have more than 2 smashes on a secret route though so make sure that you follow the entire route through until you are certain there are no smash barriers still up. I made the mistake of tapping a lot of them and not following them through which is where my last 3 smashes were. Annoying to say the least.

Here is a nice tip though which helped me find my smashes much easier. Make sure that you completely knock over all of the smash barriers when you know you've tagged it. This way, when you are screaming down a street at 200mph and you see a smash barrier, you know it's one you have not tagged yet.

Some smashes count for 2 as they are slightly separated so make sure you've completely knocked down all the gates for each one.

have you gotten all the billboards downtown? one of the crashes is on a roof you have to jump to from the parking garage down in waterfront in order to smash the billboard.

Yeah got all the billboards and superjumps even decided to go through the map once more and scouted EVERY road in downtown paradise to make sure ive smashed every gate.. including all the parking garages and gates ontop of them so i dunno whats happened. I hope i find it or i might have to start a new game and go straight for all the smashes

You can't be more specific. I too am missing one. Plus I'm (almost) certain I have all the ones in the guide.

Any possibility of taking a picture or something?

I got to 78/80 using the map, and then I got stuck for a long time. I finally found the gate that you access by driving into a building from the railroad tracks, which got me to 79. Then I found #80 as a product of tracking down all the billboards; it was the gate that blocked the stairs to the billboard that is on the second story of a building on 1st St. next to the tracks.

Now on to Harbor Town.

I found all the remaining smashes i had last night (about 10 of em in an hour or so). very easy....all I did was open the map with MS paint and blacked out the smashes (yellow dots) in black when i found them. Then just drove to all the locations on the map until they were all discovered

***This might not be news to most people but if you press start and click the discovery option it names the part of town the smashes you dont have are. Some people were unaware of this) This only really helps if you have the map showing the borders of the areas in the city. I just broke down my searches to one part of the city then moved onto the next. Good luck, and any ?'s, message me over live GT: Orange and Tool
