I set up a route on Mapquest and d/l it to my Nuvi 350 and got a successful d/l message but when I run the route on the Nuvi, it is the regular route that Nuvi would show and not the one that I set up.
Anyone else had this problem? I e-mailed Mapquest about this but have not heard back from them. Thanks
The Nuvi 350 does not accept or use Routes. What you downloaded was a collection of Favorites. Only the Nuvi 7xx series handle downloadable routes, I believe.
That is correct, on the 350, it downloads it as favorites. Routes can only be downloaded to 7xx and higher.
Maybe I explained it incorrectly. The file appears in my favorites file but it is not the same file that appears on the Mapquest page. I just put in FROM and TO, avoid toll roads, etc. After I open in favorites, the directions are just as if I had used the Nuvi address function. Hope I explained what I mean. Thanks
The 350 does not support stored routes. You can't plan a route with Mapquest and send it to that unit. You can only send individual points from Mapquest to that unit.
However, if you do plan a route and send it to the unit, as you may already guessed, you get the beginning and ending points in your favorites.
I thought that I could pull off a fast one and transfer a route from where I lived to my aunt's house in San Francisco (on MapQuest) to my 660. Didn't work, as asianfire has stated I just found my starting and end locations, and that was it. A little off the topic, I know, but some of us that don't have units that support saving routes will still give it a try
