Lastly, I tried not adding the purple wp's in to the box, but added wp # 61(red rectangle) which is on a road. I'd hoped that would maybe join everything together like one big happy family-but no
I'm sure this is some simple stuff for many of you guys,but man this is really starting to bum me out
I can not see the entire map you are using, or all the details, but what I do see in the last image is the 'purple dot' waypoints you are adding to your route appear to be at the very end of the complete route.

Again, I am unsure of the order you wish to travel them, so I may be stating the obvious.

The purple dots in that last image show where I'm trying to go off road. My route is coming from the right corner -the red rectangle #55 on that magenta road and should take a right and connect the purple dots #'s 56 thru60. The #60 finally connects to an established road where I hoped I could continue to add my wp's as I had been doing before I ran into this snag. The magenta line should NOT continue past the wp #55,but it is-that's where my problem lies.

I am thinking of getting a Montana 600.

I am coming from a Nuvi 500.

What I like about the Nuvi is the (speed limit indicator), the (where am I) and (points of interest). The point of interest is more inportant to me, havinging the ability to find fuel, hospitals, motels, food and etc.

I am not sure if it can be done with the Montana 600 after loading North America City Navigator NT, and which do you reccomend the CD or microSD data card?

Please advise on this.

Thanks

You need to insert WP #56-#60 to the correct position in the 'Drop Down Menu'. (Not at the end.)

As shown, they are at the END of the route, so BaseCamp is correctly routing you to the end of the original route, then back to WP#55, thus the little red arrows on the Magenta route are facing BOTH directions.

All POI's with CNNA will be available on your Montana also, but you will have to Purchase CNNA for your Montana first, Then a LifeTime update can be purchased and applied (DVD Version Only), if desired.

I always get the DVD, never uSD or download.

Read about the differences here.

Montana does speed limit and points of interest, you can use the Nuvi dashboard and it looks just like a Nuvi screen.
Mine doesnt have where am I in any drawers but I'm sure you could add a shortcut.
The Montana does sooo much its hard to know it all.

Thanks for the replys, very helpful.

Which do you recomend the CD or microSD data card for North America City Navigator NT?

Perhaps the reason we're not getting the same result is that we're not using the same process? I added MGV4 to my Montana by adding a file which contained nothing but MGV4 (MGV4.img) to my Montana through the Mac Finder, not MapInstall or the Windows Mapsource program.

And you don't need to believe me but the only change to ALL Profiles was that MGV4 was enabled in addition to what had already been enabled. I made very sure of that by checking before and after I added MGV4.

Wicked Finding campsites with Montana

Hope this is not a "stupid" question but while all Garmin GPS seem to list fuel, lodging etc., - the Montana does not list campsites which would be very convenient. Is this a hidden feature or something that would be useful for many of us?

Garmin probably doesn't have an exhaustive database of campsites but you could go to POI-Factory.com and get one and load it as a POI category.

Here's their category page: http://www.poi-factory.com/poifiles

For instance, this "California Campgrounds" file has 1025 sites listed: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/33160

I use all methods, and never have payed much attention to which method resulted in what, so you may be on to something.

I will pay more attention the next time I install maps and see if I can deduce exactly when this happens for me, and when it does not, to add more documentation to this phenomena.

Thank You MBD, and "Happy New Year to ALL!"
