Did you check our myrouteapp?
Yeah, will have to play with it some more.
Edit: Some things I don't like - seems to force me into making waypoints rather than just no-alert shaping points.
I've always done my routes by using waypoints so never looked at it. The subscription does give you extra features.
There are other online options too if you want to get away from Basecramp. I like MyRouteApp as you can change it to HERE maps so same as what Garmin use
Ok cool that’s what I have for my 660 now.... it looks HUGE up there. My tired old eyes are going to love it
You can send .gpx files to the device through Garmin Drive too.
At least one source has quoted just that as the reason why Garmin chose mini-USB.
Not only is there no battery door, the battery is actually soldered in to avoid battery issues that are so common on the 590.
So... 396 lmt-s or XT? I can get the 396 for probably half the price that the XT will be when it releases in Canada... Or I can wait because it seems there will be more than one XT model so there might be a smaller one coming that will be less expensive... What to do!?!
The smaller XT is $100US less on Garmin's website.
Yeah... That's the 396 lmt-s... The one I'm talking about... That's already available in Canada because it's an older model and not part of the XT lineup that's been announced... For half the price that the new XT... Hence my previous question...
XT lineup announcement? Where have you seen the lineup?
I’ve seen only a particular Zumo XT model
Oops, mistake on my part, the way I read the announcement on another website I thought they mentioned it would become a lineup of products. I think we can expect a smaller model to be announced at some point nonetheless since they added a lot of features to the XT and it might be considered too big for some (a 4.3'' display with smaller bezel like the XT would be great for dual sport use where there isn't a big windscreen to hide accessories)
So... is the screen/display spectacular?
I was getting ready to replace my 660 with a 276cx because I wanted the really easy to see screen and the bigger size.
Screen is a lot sharper than 276cx. So far though, looks like fonts and maps are presented in larger format so less data is available on Zumo XT. Only had it one day, going on a long ride today and will have a better report tonight.
One more thing I can confirm, the E32 Baja maps work and look beautiful on this screen...I'm still prepared to get disappointed as this is a new Garmin product and being a beta tester always leaves some room for disappointment. BUT...so far, this is a home run.
So does the XT have a 2D map view or not?
I just answered my own question. The manual says there is “North up 2D”, “track up 2D” and “3D”. Now to see if they show scale like on the 396.
Would one of you XT owners be able to answer this question..
Can you tell me the maximum map scale on the XT that will display secondary or dirt roads as represented in the photo below?
With my 590 I can only view small secondary roads or dirt trails at a maximum map scale of .5 Mile.. When I zoom out one step further (.7 mile)
these small dirt/secondary roads disappear from the display map.
I find that navigation on the fly for planning short routing on secondary dirt roads that this function is vital without having to zoom in to a small map scale, like .3 or .2 mile and thus limiting your actual total field of view.
Can't you play with level of details to adjust that? (Map details high) - I assume in the XT as well.
That is cool!
