Sweet. I had made the assumption that since my Legend can auto-route on the base map, MapSource would be able to as well. That's apparantly not the case.

It's all about the map data. Some do, and some don't. City Select and City Nav do. Roads & Rec and basic topo don't.

If you have non-routing map data loaded on your computer, you can draw tracks over what you'd like to ride, or do point to point routes, but not auto route.

If you have CS or CN, you can do all of the above.

The likely answer is yes - but you'd be better off going to the Lost or confused, before you ask another dumb question, click here thread, asking and answering the questions at the top, and then deciding what you should buy based on your needs.

No - there is not. You can tell major vs. minor. You can guess that the dashed roads are dirt, but there are other dirt roads that are not dashed lines.

Some dashed line roads are paved too. Most likely a function of the maps being out of date. I have had to make sure I have the avoid for "unpaved roads" turned off because some of my favorite twisty roads show up as unpaved even though they are now paved.

The most reliable source of paved road information I have found is to download the State DOT county road maps for the state of interest. Also, sometimes you can look at the roads on Google Earth and it's obvious, but not always.

Thanks for the article! I have always been a map/compass guy, and am finally breaking down and doing the GPS thing. Was looking for tips and tricks when I found this!

Completely lost...

Good Lordy Lordy...I have a Garmin GPS 60csx and I'm as lost as an Easter egg in the woods with the thing. I might as well just bring sextant and a ruler. I'll read these pages. Thank goodness for this thread, phew.

Cheers,
Les.

I am still getting the same straight line and am curious if I have a setting wrong. I am including all the route calculation information when uploading the maps.
One possibility to solve your problem:

There is a Routing setting in the Setup menu: onroad or offroad or prompt (first entry). If that says offroad you get straight lines when navigating.

Hope that solves it for you.

Where are the screen shots?

CM Woody's tutorial screen shots are not showing up on my browser. My problem or that of AR Forum? I get other graphics on this site.

The pictures that his post references aren't online anymore. Probably he closed his picture hosting account. Too bad, it would be nice to have them in his post.

There have been more than a couple requests for an update to this thread with pictures and files restored. There is a new thread stickied at the top of the forum with that information. Feel free to use that thread as a continuation to the discussion on routing that started here.
