By passing a stop on a route.

 

I had created a route in basecamp and imported it into my nuvi 2595 which contained numerous locations for rest areas, gas stations, restaurants, and hotels along this route.
However, it soon became apparent with our revised timeline for travel , that some of the proposed stops in the route, were obsolete. Is there any other way or setting, that allows the GPS to go to the next location once it becomes obvious (continuing along the route for a specific distance) that the original is not required, instead of recalculating the direction to the original point that you bypassed?
The only way I can see is to restart the saved route and choose the next location as your first stop.

Thanks

Editing

You should be able to edit the route using My Data. There you can eliminate the obsolete stop.

Only way ...

That really is the only way. You can avoid this in future by using shaping rather than via points. That way you can bypass them without issue as your nuvi won't insist you visit them.

Try This...

If I understand correctly you want to be able to skip destinations while you're driving.

I have a 2598 so I can't guarantee this will work, but... while navigating, press the bar at the top of your screen, the one that shows your next turn. That should bring up a list of turn-by-turn directions.

Scroll down the list until you see "Drive to" the location you want to go to instead. There should be a green "Go!" button there. Press it, and the GPS will recalculate going to that destination instead.

Nice one ...

... Never realised you could do that, cheers!

Eliminating stops

Auto eliminating stops by unit is rather impossible to do. Unit doesn't know why you missed set point, so it safer to expect detour than skipping it on purpose.

Only thing I saw on my 770 that eliminated stops was to drive "through" it close enough and be long enough in close proximity to this point so GPS registered position as "reached". Then it switched to next point.

I'm not sure but maybe in newer units there is way to manually skip pint that is missed.

I will try advice from Felix Krull to see, if it works on my 770.

I often run into this when I

I often run into this when I use cities as via points when planning trips. I elect small towns as via points to force routing in certain directions, and the path usually takes me by the "centre of town" or past the Post Office when doing this. If I'm thinking ahead, I some times use a highway road intersection instead of the town name eliminating the trip to city centre

but skipping a waypoint along the way, as requested, would be so much better.

Wow! This works

I occasionally stop at a selected waypoint and then once underway, Jack starts nagging at me to make turns to get me back to where I had just left. I have to assume the geocoded point was not close enough to my entrance and exit and so it didn't register that I had been there. I also assume that Jack will eventually give up but the incessant nags are annoying and and if in a city, it may cause me to miss a needed turn. As a work around, I selected Where To? and then Recently Found and selected my original destination. If I had other waypoints, I would have to reselect them also.

I just tried Felix's suggestion. On my 3597, I created a route in simulator mode with 2 waypoints en route. I selected the top bar as suggested and scrolled down and then selected Go following the 2nd waypoint and the route recalculated deleting only the 1st waypoint. Hooray, Thank You Felix. I then tried this on my older 750 and it didn't work and so I don't know which models this applies to but we can add at least the 2598 and 3597 to where it does.

Just use Basecamp to route

Use Basecamp to route the way you want to go and choose do not alert.

Great tip !

For my 3597, many thanks as the continuous recalculating is a pain.

My Nüvi 255WT on the other hand recalculates twice when you miss a via and then quickly understands and routes you to the next via smile

"Do not alert"

I created the route in Basecamp, but I am unfamiliar on how to set the points to "do not alert",

shaping

I don't know "shaping". Can u explain or point me.
thx

In BaseCamp

After you make your route select it and open it. Be sure your shaping points (poi) are in the route that you do not want to alert you. Right click on the point (poi) you do not want to alert (this can not be your last stop). There will be several options when you right click on it, just select "Don't alert on arrival (shaping point)".

On the device too

And on newer devices using the trip planner app you can change via points to shaping points and vice versa.

Note many older devices will ignore any shaping points sent by BaseCamp and convert them to via points.

Thank you jgermann,

Now I know what a shaping point is.

Shaping - thank you

Tanks for the information folks.

Thanks

Route shaping was just what I was looking for.

still trying to get the hang of this
