    Hi. I have a Zumo 665 with XM puck and program routes through Base Camp. Although this unit has not been trouble free over the years I do enjoy being connected to XM radio and weather service even when my rides take me far from cell service. Recently I have had issues with the Zumo not importing the routes correctly. Rather than the directions I programmed in Base Camp it simply plots a straight line from waypoint to waypoint. I discovered a work around which is to ask it to 'reverse direction". Then I have it reverse direction again to revert back to the same route I planned in Base Camp. It's a PITA but seems to work. I have all the latest updates installed. Has anyone come across this and is there a better work around? Maybe in the way I import the route? Thanks. Pete.

    You might try your question on the Zumo User Forums. It's a quiet forum, but there's some knowledgable & helpful folks on it.
