    Ken, how did that happen only the second time around

    THATS STRANGE

    My zumo seems to have missed a waypoint down the adriatic coast.

    At waypoint coast 1,there is a ferry crossing which picks up the d106 &

    drops down towards zadar. It seems like the zumo is trying to take a

    short cut down this route, instead of following the next mapsource waypoint.

    Ken's just asked the question about the run from Calais to Mainz where the routing ends at the Ibis, and the same for the second day.. where the route ends at the hotel we're staying at in Garmisch...

    The Campsite waypoints are as accurate as I could make them

    Follow the map as far as Mainz then change to waypoint and it will take you to the campsite, and the same in Garmisch.... you've got to go through garmisch to get to mittenwald anyway....

    Hope that makes sense!

    Ken, I'll escort you from the bridge to the campsite in Mainz which I visited in May, while the others go on to the Ibis, and I'll then rejoin them to check out my soft hotel bed for the night. In Garmish I'll be in the campsite too and I'm sure we'll find it....

    Ken, with all these tents you are selling you sure you still have one to use for the tour?

    Is it just 3 weeks to go? J.

    With my superlight packed bike, will you be able to keep up with me, and with regards to the tents, I always go by the adage that A Friend In Need,Is A Friend Indeed.

    Bryn / Stevo,

    No biggy but the Split campsite is slightly wrong....it's a couple more miles down the road from where it's shown on the routing.

    The campsite website has the lat/long as:

    lat: 43.301270n
    long: 16.313940e

    might be easier for everyone just to bang in the coords rather than change the mapping.

    Everyone's going to think I'm a right pain in the arse, but..........

    ...the route on the 2nd days ride from Mainz to Mitt.....there's a small issue with Waypoint B21 (the blue flag on the map which is between Donauworth and Augsburg). You can see it below. The red arrows pointing down and up mean it's going to send you in a circle as it takes you off on a slip road and back on the main road going in the opposite direction.....you can be there for years listening to the voice etc.
    Simple solution: Delete Waypoint 'B21' and resave your file or atleast be aware of it en-route and ignore what it's telling you.

    thanks again
    On my recent Europ trip I copied my routes etc onto a seperate card, and cunningly changed the route name from "day 1" to "day 1 sd" so that if I was having problems loading the routes from the card / zumo I could put in the back up card and try to download it form there. The name change helps as then you know it's downloaded the sd version, and not the previous ones.

Thought it might be because as this was the last route to load ( as 10 & 11 had loaded after route/day 1) that I'd got to many previous routes saved, but after deleting old surplus routes still couldn't be downloaded either from garmin or sd memory, in fact I made up another route and down loaded this, and that couldn't be found in routes. so I am unable to view any more routes from the zumo, the unit is receiving the data and it is doing all normal procedures, new data found/would you like to manage data/ data successfully imported, but then cannot be found in routes.So basically it seems all downloading procedures are right but with no route available at the end.
    Least I've got the other days routes !
    Not long now

    chubs...did you manage to resolve this problem. I've just dropped my routes into my 550 and, like you, all seemed good.....with the message along the lines of 'Data successfully imported'. However, when looking in 'routes' I noted there were 3 routes missing !!!! That made me remember that when I was 'importing' routes I noticed 3 files import within seconds (they obviousley didn't make it)....where as all the others took several minutes. I tried importing those 3 routes seperatly and all now OK. The file structure of the zumo is confusing to say the least. I thought the files 'imported' to the zumo came from the SD card but they dont (I took the SD card out and imported a route....I think it went into the GARMIN Drive - GARMIN Directory - GPX Directory and appearded as the TEMP.gpx file, which appears to be over-written everytime you upload a route from the PC to the Zumo....very confusing)

    May be worth everyone who's got a zumo to check that the routes they have in 'routes' is the same as what was transferred from the PC to the Zumo.

    gordo

    ..and of course, I'd forgotten that you can opt to send the routes to the SD card from Mapsource. Did you try this, Chubs and try and import it from there....although I realise your problem doesn't seem to involve the importation....just a thought.

    I had a sd card with music on, and spare routes, and then a 2nd card with the "sd" labelled routes. When you swap the cards over it'll see the "new" routes and give you the option to import. Best have a play before you go away, and remember there's a limit of 20 routes.
