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 zumo2 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:
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:
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, 57, 58, 65, 66, 67, 68, 2400, 2405, 2407, 2408, 2505, 2507, 2508, 2509, 2609, 2707, 2708, 2709, 3400, 3500, 3507, 3508, 3700 series, dezl 560, 570, 760, 770, Camper/RV 760, zumo 350, and 390 device:
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:
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, 57, 58, 65, 66, 67, 68, 2407, 2408, 2507, 2508, 2509, 2609, 2707, 2708, 2709, 3507, 3508 series, Camper/RV 760, dezl 570, 760, 770, 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.
2The zumo 600 and 605 series are NOT compatible with routing in BaseCamp. These devices may appear to take a route without issue however, when navigating the route, an error message may appear. An alternate program to use is MapSource. First download the map to your computer, then use MapSource to create and transfer routes to your zumo.
