Waypoints, or Shaping points?

To have the best chance of a route laid out in Basecamp stay without taking other roads on the 396, is it best to use waypoints to anchor the route, or shaping points. I want to lay out a route to follow from Knoxville, TN to the enf of US 70 in Arizona, following Hwy 70 the whole way. I plan to div...

Re: Hello from East Tennessee

Hello from East Tennessee

Just mounted a new Zumo 396 on our GoldWing after removing the trusty, dim, harder to load maps each time, longer to find satelites each time StreetPilot 2730 that has served me so well since 2005. With lifetime maps subscription, the 2730 led us up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway, to NOLA and back,...
