I appreciate that the Garmin Base camp program has a dedicated following.. but. One would think.. it should be easy to create a way point and transfer that point to my Garmin so that I could use it as a destination.
I needed to find a spot out in the country that my Garmin could not find.. so opened my Base camp program.. found the spot.. created a way point.. And now "What". I could find no way to move that spot into my Garmin. It said it did.. witnessed little bars showing a transfer. But for the life of me could not find it on my Garmin.
Can anyone point to a "how to" do something simple.. not wanting a 30 point trip.. Just, how to create a spot that I can transfer to my Garmin and use as a destination later.
Perhaps.. my understanding of what Base camp can do (is for) is wrong?
... Device do you have? You can confirm if the point has been sent by viewing the devices folder in BaseCamp.
If it was sent in most devices it will appear in favourites/saved places, for automotive devices, and in waypoint manager for handhelds.
I have a Nuvi 2689 and will give it another shot.
If you have an SD card (not familiar with the Nuvi) perhaps it was imported there. If so, you should be able to open your Garmin and import the waypoint(s) into your active saved points, at least that is how I do it on the Garmin Zumo units. It should be similar. -JEP-
... Manually importing while necessary on some zumos isn't necessary on the nuvis, except for routes on earlier models. Even if the OP does have a card inserted and if the data was sent there the nuvi will automatically import it.
