Re: Joining a route

Thanks sussamb. Now got to try and use waypoint names that actually mean something. Exactly right! My nuvi simply asks if I want to start at the beginning.

In this thread -> I asked the same question about my 595. See page 2, 3rd & 4th posts. Exactly what I needed to clear out internal storage, hopefully for you too.

Re: Updated Info other then Maps

Well he might have to plug in his GPS, depends if he's loaded maps to his computer? This is true, got me there! But when he said "plug in the GPS to the PC while working Basecamp" I naturally assumed he loaded the same maps to his PC. OP, if you haven't downloaded maps to your PC, do it! Creating/e...

Re: 595 routing worries

Some great information here, thanks so much! I will give it a go and let you know. Follow-up. After doing all this stuff I finally had a chance to put the 595 to the test on unfamiliar roads. Performed flawlessly and sensibly: - asking about skipping a point- perfect. - recalculating route when I d...

Just a word- magnificent! Tried out my first one, near Charlotte, NC. Well worth the leisurely ride over. 595LM performed flawlessly.

Thanks!

Thanks Stu!! You da’ man! :mrgreen:
Heck yeah! Go crazy with it. I had to download the Adobe app to my phone and this manual, being pdf, works fine with it. Nice having the manual along on trips if I need it.
