[VIDEO] Garmin 650t Utter Frustration... plz watch.

Recommended Posts

Don't believe it's a bad file as it worked fine in my Etrex 20, maybe a bug in the Oregon series? Either way provided Direct activity is selected and, as Kunarion states, you say No to any offer to recalculate it appears to work.

I only got the error once, and it's fine now. So, yes, it's maybe just a bug, some kind of Garmin weirdness. If it pops up again, I'll tell it to "recalculate" on the non-existent maps, and watch it flip out! :anicute:

 

If the OP can't resolve his issue, and if this is the same error message he's getting, at least I may be able to duplicate it on my GPSr. But I'm crossing my fingers and clicking my ruby slippers together believing it will work now ;) . Maybe with just rare a popup error, but we know how to deal with it.

This thread on the Garmin Oregon 650T was intriguing to me because it drew so many speculative responses from those of us who do not even have access to the 650T hardware. This morning I again searched the latest available Garmin 6xx series manuals in pdf format word for word and, again, found no definitive answer to the original issue. IIRC the original post was about creating a simple direct, 26 coordinate pair, point to point route.

 

- As others have pointed out, the simple downloadable Pocklington hiking route in gpx file format works fine in Direct mode in some other apps and devices.

- As I learned, the late model Nuvi 56 with Trip Planner I have will route Direct to the first point in a route only. Then it switches back to perpendicular "off road" navigation for the remaining 25 or so points. The worldwide base map included in my US/Canada detail mapped Nuvi was sufficient to display this behavior on base maps of England, once I figured it out. The first point of direct multi-point route navigation may be a continent or island away and cross oceans, but the road (off road)routing will pick up properly on the second route point. This design is obviously purposeful, as the text (and text to speech audio?) Directions wording is slightly different when "off-road" is selected.

 

- My 5 year old, barely used, Nuvi 255w, however, turns out to be capable of creating a multi-point direct point to point route, even if it may not be capable of easily saving that route when powered off.

- As would my Delorme PN-40 and PN-60 gps devices, but with total points trimmed to 25 maximum, if recalculated on the device.
