@Phil-Beharrell If you get straight lines, alter route to curvy roads, let it recalculate, then change it back to faster route, or visa versa, works for me on my BMW NAV VI ( Garmin ) Motorcycle satnav
As the main focus of the route is a motorcycle route I doubt that many of the end users will have a device that can track off road walking paths.
This is just a short 10 to 15 minute walk so I am going to provide it as an image on YouTube.
I used OSM to plot the route in Offroad mode using footpaths and used the Google overlay.
Ik heb geen weet dat MRA dat kan, maar BaseCamp (vrij installeerbaar, maar dan weliswaar zonder het Garmin kaartmateriaal) kan dit makkelijk doen. Aangezien editeren nogal moeilijk is zonder kaartmateriaal kun je in BaseCamp dan eventueel wel OpenStreetMap kaartmateriaal (downloaden, installeren en) gebruiken.
Ik denk dat het alleen op de Here kaart niet in de route opgenomen kan worden.
Je zou er voor kunnen kiezen om twee extra punten te plaatsen en dan bij de tweede in de eigenschappen te kiezen voor "Overslaan".
Ter plekke kun je dan zien wat je kunt doen. Omrijden is niet zo moeilijk daar
On the XT and in the XT manual they no longer use the word “Journey” at all.
If you use the export option .GPX 1.1 (Beta, Route, Track, POI) in conjunction with the Garmin Drive App it will automatically create a route in the Trip Planner App on the XT with full directions visible and audible.
It will also give you the track in Explore on the XT.
Often people will advise that you make the Track visible on the map so that if there are any road closures you can visually follow the Track to get you back onto the route. (I am now going to use this as you will see mentioned further below)
However as far as I can see this requires that you place the track in a collection but again as far as I know there is no way to create a Collection directly on the XT.
You have to use the Explore Website (Not the Explore App) and you must have the Garmin Drive App open as well for the Collection to transfer to the XT.
You can then add the Track to this Collection and display the Track on the Map.
It all seems very clunky and convoluted of Garmin to have us jumping through hoops like this just to get a Collection onto the XT so if anyone knows a way to directly add a Collection on the XT please do let us know.
My personal preference is to place at least 1 shaping point (I never use Via Points) on every single road that I wish to travel on.
This ensures that my route stays exactly as I want it without Garmin deciding “Hey go this way it can save you 15 Minutes”.
In the first couple of months of doing this it was flawless in getting me back to the route if I came across a road closure, but recently, for whatever reason it has occasionally instigated some “Make a U-Turn” prompts.
I am still trying to work out how to reliably skip x amount of Shaping points on the XT.
To resolve these issues in the mean time, I just zoom the map out and visually find a way back to the route by memory.
I think I will start adding the Track to a collection for all my routes until I work out how to avoid these strange and sometimes unecassary U-Turn prompts.
Tracks do have another purpose though for Off Roading on UK Green Lanes.
Particularly if you are in an area were there are lots of BOATS (Byways Open to All Traffic) but also Bridleways that vehicles cannot go on. (I have accidentally gone on a Bridalway a couple of times )
Here’s an example of Salisbury Plains on the XT with only the BOAT’s visible in a Single Collection of 70+ green lanes.
You don’t get any prompts at all you just visually follow the tracks.
Regardless of the program/app used, I avoid adding POIs to my routes as, over the years, I have found they can provide unreliable data. Petrol stations no longer in existence, cafés closed down, etc. I do use POIs in the planning stage, but only as an indicator of what might exist in an area. Based on them, I double check using other sources, such as Google Maps & Street View (always checking the date of the Street View imaging because it can vary widely) and following website links to a venue, etc.
Once I’m satisfied that a venue or location checks out, I add it as a waypoint, label it appropriately and set it as a via point, rather than a shaping point.
That might seem a bit OTT to some? But I plan a number of tours, group and long rides each year and I have found that this approach can save a lot of hassle on the road.
@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
