Hi Walter, loving the ride report. Having just come back from riding the TAT (2up) I know what you mean about the limitations of the Zumo 550. I did all the TAT sections either auto routing on the known roads or with waypoints then creating routes, trying to minimise the number of way points per route. This worked OK but the other couple with us had a Zumo 660 and they are worse, only accepting about 150 waypoints so after about half of each route it would have a straight line to the end !
Did you draw all of the tracks in to create your route ? I havent tried this yet and I am thinking a Montana may be on my shopping list. What is the limit of points per route with the Montana.
Cheers Phil
