Creating a multiple-point route allows you to navigate among several points. Routes can be saved to the device's memory for use at a later date. The number of routes that can be saved to a device will vary depending upon the model.

To create a route on a nuvi 465, 500, 700, 705, 800, 805, 1400, 1690, or 5000 series, zumo 200, 400, 500, or 600 series:

  1. Touch Where to?
  2. Touch Routes or Custom Routes
  3. If no previous routes have been created, touch Yes when the prompt appears asking if you'd like to create one. If previous routes have already been created, touch New
  4. Touch Add New Start Point. (Please note that the Start Point is not necessarily the point from where you'll be leaving. The Start Point will be the first point you would like to travel to.)
  5. Use the various search functions to find and touch the desired starting point
  6. Touch Select
  7. Touch Add New Start Point or Add New End Point to add a second point
  8. Follow steps 5 and 6 to locate and add your second point
  9. Add up to 200 total points by touching Add New Start Point, Add New End Point or the green arrows
    • Touching the green arrows will add a destination in between the two points indicated
    • Remove points by touching the red box next to the point(s) you want to remove
  10. Touch Next once all desired points have been added. The device will calculate the route and display it on the map preview screen
  11. Touch Save to finish or touch Back to return and add/remove more points

Once the route has been saved, it may be edited as desired. The device can optimally reorder the points for you. You may also manually reorder the points. The route may also be deleted.

To edit or delete a route on these devices:

  1. Touch Where to?
  2. Touch Routes or Custom Routes
  3. Touch the route that you would like to edit
  4. Touch Edit (skip this step on some devices)
  5. Select from the following options:
    • Change Name: Customize the name of the saved route as it appears within the Routes or Custom Routes menu
    • Add or Remove Points: Add or remove destinations to the saved route
    • Manually Reorder Points: Manually select the order in which you would like to be routed to all the entered points
    • Optimally Reorder Points: Have the device calculate the most optimum order in which to travel to all the entered points
    • Recalculate: If navigation settings have been changed or a map update has been completed, select this option to have the device recalculate the route
    • Reverse Points (available only on the zumo 660 and 665): Reverses all entered points for a return trip
    • Delete: This appears as a button at the bottom of the screen rather than a menu item. This will permanently remove the route from the Routes or Custom Routes list.
    • View Map (only on the nuvi 1400 series): Allows you to preview the route in its entirety

When the route has been edited to your satisfaction, touch the Go! button to proceed with navigation. Please note that the nuvi 1400 series will only display the Go! button after you've touched the View Map option indicated in the final step above.
