Routes can be created on the computer in programs such as BaseCamp1 or MapQuest, and then transferred to certain models of nuvi, LIVE, dezl, Camper/RV, or zumo devices.

Once the created routes have been transferred, you may access them on the device. On certain models, the routes must be imported before they can be accessed.

To access transferred routes on a nuvi 465, 500, 700, 705, 800, 805, 1400, 1690, 5000 series or a zumo 220, 400, 500, 600, or 605 series:

  1. Touch Tools
  2. Touch My Data or User Data
  3. Touch Import Route(s) from File
  4. Select the routes you would like to import
  5. Touch Import

The device will now import the selected routes. The routes that were imported can be found in the Routes option under "Where To?".

To access transferred routes on a nuvi 295W:

  1. Touch Where To?
  2. Touch Routes
  3. Touch the menu button (three horizontal lines)
  4. Touch Import Routes

The device will now import the selected routes. The routes that were imported can be found in the Routes option under "Where To?"

To access a transferred route in a nuvi 55, 56, 65, 66, 2400, 2405, 2407, 2408, 2505, 2507, 2508, 2707, 2708, 3400, 3500, 3507, 3508, 3700 series, dezl 560, dezl 760, Camper/RV 760, zumo 350, and 390 device:

  1. Touch Apps or Tools
  2. Touch Trip Planner
  3. Allow time for the device to automatically import the trip/route

The import will automatically begin, but no message will appear on the device indicating that the import is happening and may take several minutes to import the trips. Once the import is complete, all transferred routes will be displayed under a category called Unscheduled Trips in the Trip Planner.1 Until the trip(s) show up in Trip Planner, please do not turn off the device or connect it to a computer.

To access a transferred route in a zumo 590:

  1. When the device is first powered on, the message 'New routes found. Import to trip planner?' will appear, Touch Yes
  2. Select each route you want to import
  3. Touch Import
  4. Go back to the Main Menu
  5. Touch Apps
  6. Touch Trip Planner

The imported routes are now listed under Unscheduled Trips.

*Please note: When routes are imported to your Garmin device, the route may change due to navigation settings within your device.

1The nuvi 55, 56, 65, 66, 2407, 2408, 2507, 2508, 2707, 2708, 3507, 3508 series, Camper/RV 760, zumo 350, 390 and 590 devices can send routes created using Trip Planner to BaseCamp. The remaining devices that create routes using Trip Planner cannot send routes to BaseCamp. However, devices that utilize Trip Planner will be able to receive routes from BaseCamp, with the exception of the nuvi 2200 and 2300 series devices.
