How to keep original directions during a long travel? Posted: 11/22/2012 08:42am
I'm traveling during X-Mass from Montreal, Canada to Florida, Cocoa Beach.
This 24 hours travel will take about 36 hours. I expect several rest area stops as well as sleeping in a motel and perhaps visiting some POI during the travel with my family.
Then, here is my question. I set my garmin for the long travel (Montreal - Florida). Arrived at a certain point during my travel, I will decide to stop (I don't know where for now) and perhaps visit some POI or sleep in a bed. Therefore, I need to set a temporarily new direction to go to hotel or POI and the day after, continuing with my initial destination (Florida).
Is there a way to keep several directions active and bypass from one direction to another without erasing or setting from scrath my original direction?
Set up the route you wish to take on your computer, using Mapsource or Basecamp (from Garmin site) and save and download to the GPS.
You can then load the route as many times as you wish, until you delete it.
Go to all your side trips and then just go back and reload your original trip route.
