Re: Zumo 396 Bluetooth Earbud Alternatives

I use a Cardo Freecom 1 to connect to both my Garmin zumo 396 and my iPhone. 10 hr battery life. I can answer calls easily while listening to music and turn instructions from the garmin come through clearly. For short rides I use the helmet speakers, for long rides I use a pair of Sennheiser earbuds.

Re: Rookie questions

I’ve created my route(s) labelled them by number and by start and end point..1 per day. I am mostly happy with all except one - the Edinburgh to Inverbeg route which is day 1.
I would gladly trade scotch for assistance..I live in fear of arriving in Scotland only to find out that nothing works.

Re: Rookie questions

I created the routes using the rubber band tool, which I then manually tweaked. For a couple of routes, for example Durness to John O’Groats very little manual tweaking was required. Do I need to add waypoints anywhere?
