1. The ability to edit routes like Mapsource. ie select the route , click and drag it from one road to another.

2. The support of what has been called shaping points on the zumoforums.com site. These pointa (via or way whatever you call them) direct the route, but when the route is imported to a Zumo they are not flagged. The flags on a Zumo screen are very irritating nless I want to stop at that point. Those flags are much too large.


If the route is dragged to very specific and precise points those points will not be announced nor flagged by a Zumo. But they will keep the route on the roads that I selected.


You should also join at zumoforums.com We need you there too!

As for downloads if you make a new folder in Bobcat and drag only those items you want to download into that folder and you then select that folder and tell Bobcat to transfer it will download only those items in the selected folder.

Bobcat doesn't do maps yet. Maps are downloaded to your GPS device using Garmin's MapInstall program.

Hey, cool.

I was confused about deleting, as Mac OS normally drags to the trash can whenever one wants to delete. Actually using the delete key to delete sounds rather Windozy.

You can change the symbol that is displayed when using the route tool. Just double click the via point and change the symbol to something less imposing.

Yes, but changes like that made on the computer do not transfer to the Zumo screen.

Route tool crashes Bobcat

I've made routes with Bobcat before, but today everytime I try to use the route tool it crashes Bobcat. WTF!?

Also, it seems that it is impossible to manually create a route with my 276c so I'm totally fucked and can't make a route AT ALL!

PS I can't autoroute because I'm using Roads & Rec.

I successfully created an autoroute. The 1st 2 times I tried it got hung up in the creation. But the 3rd time it actually worked. Of course the route was a bit 'odd' but then I didn't expect it to be what I'd choose.

I need to play with it some more.

I just found this thread too late I guess.I just bought and installed City Nav.2008 for my mac.I was disappointed to find maps didn't install on my computer also.So I gather I have to buy 2009 now if I want the maps on the Mac?I have never used my gps to plot a route to follow but would like to try it.

If you have access to a PC, read the whole thread. There is free software to be used. It's easy money.

Thanks for the directions

Hey Brian,
Please tell the folks at Garmin that the new software for my mac works great. I did the conversion of my existing maps and then transfered them and it was easy and worked like a charm. I look forward to buying topo maps that are mac compatible when/if they become available. I read here that the 2009 road maps will be, what about the topo's for the USA?

thanks,
jb

Question Bobcat "Find" function

Converted my maps, opened them in Bobcat and have the thing up, but for some reason, the "Find" function just doesnn't work--no field in which to enter information.

Anyone else have this problem or am I screwing up?

Thanks.

Can you take a screenshot of this behavior and use the "Report issues to Garmin" option in the Help menu to send it to us?

Thanks,
Brian

Welcome Brian! I guess you've been here long enough now to see how many people are looking forward to this software being fully functional! I love my Zumo but without running Windows (which I don't have as yet) it is essentially useless for pre-planning the kinds of routes I would like to ride.

I'm looking forward to an application that is as fast, transparent and easily used as Google Maps. The ability to drag the route to a different road is brilliant. If I could do something like that in BobCat...on fire roads and trails as well as paved roads...I'd be ecstatic.
