Naming Waypoints and Shaping points.

Post by Exrm193 »

So I've created a route on Basecamp. I've renamed all the Waypoints and Shaping Points. 1 - 10

When I transfer the route over to the Zumo, it has defaulted back to the original BC names which mean nothing to me.

Any idea how to get the names I want on the actual Zumo??

If it really matters to you then it's possible to edit the gpx file

A gpx file can be opened and edited with any text editor. The tricky part is figuring out what to edit.
