I am interested in some of those GPX routes for my Garmin 590 and I found they work very well for a route which is in a pretty much straight line (ie where the start and end points are in opposite directions) the problem I am having is where the start and end points are close together the Garmin takes me from the start to the end in the shortest distance, ignoring the loop/route even though it shows it in Basecamp and on my Garmin. I have changed all the settings I can think of on the Garmin and in Basecamp and Garmin tech support are not able to help.
I am sure I am overlooking something simple, I have added multiple waypoints etc, has anyone come across this before/know of a fix?
Might I suggest using TYRE - it's a free download and really straightforward on how to use. I like that it uses the Google Maps interface and then once a route is plotted in it, then transferring direct to a Garmin device is super simple. Within TYRE, it will save many waypoints, because I've used it for multi day trips down south, and also for emailing routes to people, because it saves the routes as .gpx or .gdb
I used Basecamp for years and before that MapSource, and found Tyre to be a much faster and simpler way to plot routes and load them into my Nuvi 550...
Thanks, I haven't used Tyre but used other similar apps apart from Basecamp and they all show the route correctly on a Garmin but the problem comes when the start and end points are close together, I think its a setting or something - I saw somewhere to unselect "route recalculation" but don't want to turn that off as I often miss a turn :O
