    My Zumo 550 has finally died after 12 years of steady abuse. I have replaced it with a Zumo 396, which is a huge step up, but when I transferred my routes to it (I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to routes) I noticed that it does not sort them. They are not even listed in the order I transferred them...its just...random. I don't see any way to sort them, so I was wondering if anyone else has figured out a way to organize routes on the 396. Thanks!

    I don't know but my guess is that the routes are sorted by how far each one is in some average sense from where you are.
    This is the way the Montana displays tracks and waypoints.
    I have never had enough routes loaded to have noticed this.

    Thanks. I have about 30 routes on the Zumo, so sorting the way it did with the 550 would be nice. I've opened a ticket with Garmin to have this feature added, so maybe it will be there in a future release.
