  • Garmin GPS and laptop software 'integration'

    The wife just bought me a Garmin nuvi. My need now is quite simple. I travel alot on routes as an appraiser and I.T. consultant. To make my travel more efficient, I would like to use some laptop/desktop software like mapppoint, plot my routes in it and upload it to Garmin.

    If mappoint can't do it, is there software that would afford this?

    thx in advance.

    ok...question, why can't you plot the route with just the NUVI?

      I can do that just fine, but as a part of my daily routine when planning my routes to clients and destinations, it's more convenient for me to plot routes on my pc and simply import into Garmin if that's possible.

      From an office automation standpoint, I could have my 'helpers' add routes to orders automatically.

      So, do you have the answer?

        Hey, go **** yourself....

        Then go to this link: http://www.garmin.com/support/downlo...ils.jsp?id=575

        The program is called NROUTE, which can be found with about a tiny bit of effort. It should take care of your problem.

                Delorme Street Atlas. I use it with an older model Garmin and it works great for routing. Up an Download of routs and waypoints is a snap.
