595LM with fixed routes

Post by snekkis »

Hello everybody!

Maybe one of you could help me. I used my new 595LM last summer on some trips. I staked out the trips with custom Google maps, saved them in "My maps," exported them to import into 595. I wanted to go that specific route, but the GPS wanted to live its own life sometimes. This was really tedious since many times I knew that it was not choosing my fixed route. Is there a way to have the GPS go strictly on your fixed route?

Hi and welcome to the forum

You can't just plan routes and export them in google maps unfortunately

You can have al look and use https://kurviger.de/en instead. There is a learning curve for exporting to a (Gamin) device, but you can have great results.

Just gave this a quick go and works well with the right buttons clicked ;)
