Does anyone here still play with a game Device? (Xbox, Playstation,Ect)

Knowing the average age group on this great site, I was wondering if anyone still plays on game consoles?

I still play on my Xbox One (use to be Xbox360) Keeps my mind sharp, and gets me to play with my grown kids remotely. Most of the games are 1st person shooting games but also play GTA! I play both online and the local missions.

I still find it fun and enjoyable.

How about you?

Bobkz - Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD/2455LMT/C530/C580- "Pain Is Fear Leaving The Body - Semper Fidelis"

backup and restore route files on nuvi 1450?

Simply put, I've forgotten how. Planning a road trip that requires more than ten routes (capacity of the 1450).

Want to create six(6) routes, save them to laptop, then delete from 1450 so I can create additional routes. During trip, I would again delete from 1450 and retrieve original six from laptop.
