I just spent two hours trying to create an itinerary on the TomTom that avoided roads that I cannot drive on. Is there anyway to create a route on any routing web site - and which - and transfer it to the TT as a new itinerary to be saved in the itinerary section for later use?
I would think it depends on the model. Some support multi-point routes, others don't. That, and not all web-based mapping software will support a transfer to TT. Google, for one will let you transfer a route to TT.
The model is the in-dash Eclipse and it does support multi-point routes when creating an itinerary. How does Google work to transfer a route to TT,and will it use the Google directions to create the route?
From what I have read, there is a third-party program called "TYRE" that will let you do this for TomTom units. The web site for this is at: http://www.janboersma.nl/gett/faqs.php#qb2
I have not used this myself - yet - as we just recently got our first GPS, so I am still in the learning process and trying to do things one step at a time. However, I have seen a number of favorable comments about TYRE, so it may be worth a look for you.
Thank you for the suggestion of Tyre. It works perfectly. Simple interface, quick, and easy to use.
I am pleased to hear that TYRE worked well. I plan to use it myself in the future, if I can ever resolve the problem that popped up when I used the "Guaranteed Latest Map" update feature.
I've lost the use of the computer voices - although I still have the use of recorded voices - and Tom Tom support has been unable to restore them. I try to take things one step at a time to make it more simple to identify the cause of a problem, so TYRE is on hold until later.
If so, plan a route on google maps and use this extension in your web browser : http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/gmaptogpx/
I do not think that a TomTom can use a GPX file without a conversion to its own format, which is OV2.
There is software available to do that conversion, but that introduces an extra step into the process.
Again, you are correct. POIEdit will convert the files.
