@StefanHummelink aha, dat zou misschien wel voldoende duidelijk moeten geweest zijn
Aangezien Keulen niet in de benelux ligt (denk ik ) zal ze de kaart van europa moeten selecteren vermoed ik.
De vraag is natuurlijk voor welke kaart ze betaald heeft bij "tommie" en welek kaart op haar GPS opgeladen zijn
A great suggestion from @Wallace-Shackleton regarding the A710/711 - that’s a relatively little known and very beautiful stretch of coastline. In fact, the whole area is a bit special - not with the typical grandeur of the Highlands, but rolling, soft, gentle... After that, I suggest moving away from the coast, heading from Kirkudbright to New Galloway on the A762 then the A712 to Newton Stewart and the A714 to Girvan from there. From Girvan, the B741 is entertaining as far as Dalmellington. In terms of getting to Edinburgh from there, beyond Dalmellington is ‘here be dragons’ territory for me, but the A70 has to be a candidate?
Dan moest het toch ergens aan mijzelf/mijn browsers liggen.
Heb vanmorgen in alle 3 de browsers de cache eens opgeschoond. Daarna afgesloten en opnieuw opgestart. Link in URL balk geplaatst en zie daar ...... alles nu in KM.
Bedankt voor alle moeite die jullie hebben gedaan.
Could it be that you accidentally use the original route instead of the converted track? Did you go through the correct steps to convert the track?
If you export a route from MRA as GPX 1.1 BMW, the NAV will receive a route and a track. You do not use this route. So do not import if the device asks for it.
Go to the track on your nav and specify "Show on Map" in the properties. Then you can adjust the display color to your liking at "Set Color".
Then "Convert to Trip"
My preference for the XT, after much testing like yourself, is to use the Beta export but I only ever use shaping points and I use the Trip Planner exclusively.
I actually put at least 1 shaping point on every road on the route.
Yes it means extra work creating the route but for those times when I do go off route there are less chances for dodgy recalculations.
I did use the Track Visible option for a while but I have found it pointless due to the amount of shaping points I add.
For me Garmin Tracks have only one purpose.
UK Green Lanes (Byways Open to All Traffic).
I plot them on the OS Maps Software and Transfer directly to the XT.
No more accidentally going down a Bridleway and enduring the wrath of the Walkers and Horse Riders.
@Sheldon-Barnes said in Fuel Stops:
Thats pretty much what ive been doing, but thought there may be a feature i didnt know about
Im setting off doing the NC500 on 18th including a few thigs to visit on the way up and down, taking in roads i think will provide the best scenery.
My bike does around 230miles per tank, so to be safe was thinking of every 200 miles
There are ample fuel stops on the NC500 I have some highlighted on my RouteXpert route click the link NC 500 RouteXpert
put a waypoint just in front and just behind that strech of road, like here point 1 and 2
select the second waypoint and click on the car symbol
Then MRA skips that stretch of road, but you can still ride it
That's what I'll do
But with this method, if I take a wrong way, I can't ask the GPS to bring me back on the right road...
I think it's a pity that the VIA function doesn't correspond to the obligatory waypoints on the garmin, as in basecamp.
Thanks again for your help
