    I have used Tyre a lot, I used it to create routes for those with Tomtom devices. I found it no easier to use than Mapsource. I prefer to use systems that use the same maps as my device anyway.

    This is exactly my point about the difference in support between Mapsource and Basecamp. If I were to have a serious problem with my Mapsource I would just re install it. I don't risk losing routes...

    I agree with the sentiment about doing things properly but then I wouldn't be using a helicoil to repair a sump. My view is that they might be OK for things like cylinder head studs (not bolts) that...

    Well this knob has just looked at the base map for the area shown on the OPs screenshot! I suggest you do the same. You will see that the level of detail on the base map is nowhere near that shown...

    To me it looks like he does have maps, it is only the route that straight lines . A basemap has straight lines between towns, the one shown on the screen shot does not. My guess is that the route...

    FFS I clearly said that different maps were a red herring. As I pointed out my real world experience taught me that using different versions of Garmin maps does not cause such problems. You then go...

    I don't doubt that. It was all part of a major cock up at Garmin. The reason I mentioned my experience was that it is possible that the OP had the same issue with just parts of the maps missing. ...

    The map updates are different for a 660 and a Nav V but this whole thing about different maps is a red herring. In seven summers of transferring routes to all sorts of devices each and every day I...

    Shaping points do as their name suggests shape the route, they tell the device to go a certain way. Provided that they have been used sensibly when the route was created they will ensure that the...
