    @ADVer yep - that works very well, save a GPX on iCloud or Google Drive, open it in a smartphone/tablet with Garmin Drive and voilà.

    @OleØ - as an alternative you can wire the Zumo XT to your PC and just copy the GPX files in the GARMIN\GPX folder.

    I bought a Zumo XT as well and I could not resists to make this short video (pardon the out of focus):



    Isn't Garmin Drive cool!?
    Macho Man2 and ADVer like this.

    Really liking this program. Exactly what I needed. Did the $10 register but havn't got the email yet. Only think I would wish for in making routes around where I live would be for the dirt roads to be easier to find

    Thanks for the idea, it may not be too hard to find a way to highlight unpaved road near a certain area... I'll think about it.

    Pls. contact me in MP if you don't find the emai!

    That would be a killer enhancement for the dual sport and Adv crowd!

    This would be a feature that would definitely make you stand out. Would be pretty popular with the bicycle crowd too I would imagine. I've been trying to find an app that will route avoiding paved roads whenever possible. Nothing out there that does this as far as I can tell

    Did you ever get a route built in Basecamp? I found that if you export from Mappite as a track it works. So far Mappite has been the answer to all my route planning needs.

    I did not get it to work. I ended up downloading the Bike GPX app to import routes. It works SO WELL. Recommend you check it out.
