    Trying to upload routes to my 276c I get a "Route Truncated" error message on the unit. I've recently updated the maps on the PC to City Navigator North America NT 2013.4. I was using City Navigator NA NT 2011 with no errors.

    Do you have the same maps loaded on teh 276c? Normally you don't get that error until you try to navigate the route, but that will be a problem if you have not.

    If you are exceeding the number of waypoints permitted in a route, you will have a problem.

    If you are using 'Autorouting' routes, you are limited to 50 points.

    If you are using 'Direct' routes on a 276C you are limited to 300 points.

    Most of the other Garmin units are limited to 250 points on a 'Direct' route.

    To change this setting in Mapsource (sorry, don't know Basecamp) go to Edit, Preferences, Routing and select your routing preference.

    After you have changed the routing preference, go to the route in question and recalculate it by selecting it (left click), look at the options (right click), and select 'Recalculate Route'

    Thanks to both of you. Yes, I have the same maps on the GPS. I can send a direct route to the unit. I'm still working on autorouting.
