Re: Zumo 595 lost the maps whilst on holiday

We are touring in France, 2 days ago after a coffee I tried to turn the zumo back on but it didn't respond, I pulled and refitted the battery, it powered up and said maps updated.... It completely screwed the maps, France no longer existed! We used a map to travel the next 120 miles to our hotel. T...

Re: Routes and Waypoints

Seems to me that there is a bit of confusion here. rbentnail's idea of swapping in SD cards for trips is a good one. But when he says "waypoints" it seems that he means the waypoints that make up the routes. They are part of the routes and come into the 595 when the routes are imported. "Waypoints"...

Does that mean you've now worked it out?
I see the selections, haven't tried anything yet.

Re: Zumo 595 thoughts after 1500km (1000 mile tour)

'skip next destination' is in the Change route menu in Map Tools. When I select Settings/Map & Vehicle/Map Tools I am sent to "Select Map Tools". I am given a checkbox for turning on or off Change Route. That is, I can add it or remove it from the "Quick" tools button. But I cannot 'skip next desti...

Re: Zumo 595 thoughts after 1500km (1000 mile tour)

Apparently you don't own a 595. Otherwise you would know what you're talking about: A- I don't want the device to decide on a new route for the next xxx miles by telling it to detour. Yes, that's what it does, it sometimes completely changes the route. No, I just want to skip one single preprogramme...

Re: Editing route

MapSource somehow knew how to route down that side road, how is that? Is there way, via or shaping point(s) that can be deleted/erased?

DO NOT retire your 660. I have the 595 and it is rubbish. Wish I had kept my 660
I concur! I'm currently attempting to reanimate my old nuvi. The 595 IMHO should be avoided if possible. I seriously doubt I'll ever buy another Garmin because of it.
