Navigator IV and GPX Files

Need some help with using GPX files.

When I import a GPX file in to Basecamp it tends to show the route in
straight lines instead of following the road on the map.

*&^%$# if I can figure out how to make this work properly so I can then export to my Nav IV and it is driving me crazy. There are so many great GPX dowloads available on this site and I can't figure out how to make use of them !!

Can one of you GPS experts help please......

First, did the GPX have a route or a track?
If route, then right click and select recalculate.

Lots of questions, but the first one is "what is in the file you are loading to load"? A series of waypoints?

With Basecamp, you need to either have a map file loaded, or if your maps are on your unit, then your GPS needs to be plugged into the computer for the map data to be used. Then, it can route to roads.

In the most basic of terms, you should be able to load the gpx file, attach your GPS, calculate the route, and it should follow some roads. That assumes a lot, but since you are getting lines right now, it seems either you aren't calculating, or your GPS is not attached.
