Hi all, has anybody had problems with routes that are setup in RoadTrip not translating into the same routes once transferred to a Nuvi? I setup a route recently, transferred it, then imported the route on the Nuvi (755T) using the Custom Data button. The Nuvi recalculated the route at import and made a change at the end, trying to put me onto a nonexistent road that RoadTrip correctly avoided. (aside: both Nuvi and RoadTrip are the latest versions/firmware/maps/etc) Am I missing some work-around other than manually verifying the routes are the same post-import and adding via points if not??
I have noticed the same behavior. Except in my most recent case (yesterday), the Nuvi 465T took me on a good (though 2 lane) road that saved me 18 minutes and about that many miles over what I had originally planned (because I didn't know what that state highway would be like). So, this time, the story had a happy ending. I'm not sure about next time. I'd be interested to see what someone has to say.
Thank you for the post.
Hi guys, Im a newbie. Nice to join this forum.
Creat a separate folder in Roadtrip after you have built a route. The name of that folder will become the name of your POI. Drag the route to the new folder. "Export" the new folder to your desktop. It will save as a .gpx file. Drag it into the folder where you have you POI files. Then using the Garmin POI loader load the poi from the folder on your desktop where you have the .gpx files, and it appears in you Custom POI list.
I've created some routes based on the MAD Maps (I couldn't buy them - otherwise I just would have - I did buy the actual maps from their website, though).
Anyway... I'm trying to load them from RoadTrip (Mac) -> nüvi 1490T and am having a heck of a time.
I can't seem to make it work. I've tried loading straight. I've tried loading onto a micro SD card. I've tried loading via Custom POI (as cellis suggested). No luck.
What am I missing? Seems like someone at Garmin would have looked at this and tested it before sending it out..
Creat a separate folder in Roadtrip following you've constructed a route. The title of that folder will turn out to be the title of one's POI. Drag the route towards the new folder. "Export" the new folder for your desktop. It'll conserve like a .gpx file. Drag it to the folder exactly where you've you POI data files. Then utilizing the Garmin POI loader load the poi in the folder in your desktop exactly where you've the .gpx data files, and it seems in you Custom POI list.
