    Probably a dumb question. I'm trying to plan a route on the computer on Mapsource, then load onto the Zumo.
    Is there an esy way to do this? Do you use tracks, waypoints or routes?
    Or...is it easier to do it directly on the Zumo?

    Any help appreciated.

    You may want to read the owners manual or search this and hundreds of other Zumo specific forums.

    My method would be to create a Route on Mapsource and download to your Zumo. Simple to do from Mapsource. Remember to turn off auto recalculation mode on your Zumo or it will re-route based on your navigation settings on your Zumo.

    JR356, thanks for that link, I couldn't find one that specific on my own. I played with it alot last night (the GPS) and learned a bunch.

    Thanks again
