Topo Routing


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I have a Garmin 60CSx, love it! I just figured out how to make a route (on unpaved roads) on the topo maps in MapSource. I ride a quad off road.


The problem is, the route loads to my GPS but will only show as a straight line and not follow the unpaved roads as it does in MapSource. I made sure all the settings in my GPS match the settings in MapSource. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?


Thanks for the help!!


I am using Topo US 2008

It worked in MapSource, but not on the GPS, that doesn't make sense.

You must have had a different map selected in Mapsource as Topo USA 2008 does NOT do "Follow Road" routing, either in Mapsource or on the GPS. It will only do Direct/straight-line routing.


Yes it does, if you go into preferences and routing and change the settings, I got it to route on the unpaved roads from one waypoint to another. Just can't seem to get it to do it on the GPS.
