Routes with waypoints

Post by BMWR1150R »

So I've got the transfer gpx route to explorer and then sync with Zumo XT ok. Problem is that the waypoints are missing on route. I can follow the route with no problem but no waypoints. Help please.

Explore is not yet at the right level to handle this kind of routing. After import(or share) the one thing that remains are the so-called route points, thus making it a what BaseCamp would call a 'direct' route. All the extra info, among others info in the ViaPoints(mostly these are Waypoints) and ShapingPoints are filtered out.

So, for the time being I would advise you to share a route by the old-school cable or by means of the Garmin Drive app. This way it will turn up un-harmed in the Trip planner on the XT.

And, for the future, keep watching the further development of the Explore feature. I think it has great potential but needs more sharpening for routes.

Have a good one today!
