I need to create a route and get it onto my Rider 550.

I need to make a succession of stops in a certain order and get them onto the 550. I created the route on MyDrive but it only allows you to create .gpx files. I went to TomTom support and it says to save the file on the device to a certain file location. I could neither find that location on the device or even drag and drop the file to the device. It seems to me that what I am trying to accomplish should be fairly straight forward. Am I missing something here or is the 550 Rider really this user unfriendly.

    Save route on a sd card using computer and insert the same card in the rider and import route.

    Hi
    @Civilone
    Firstly, are you logged into MyDrive on the Rider 550
    Check... Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> MyDrive....

    Using the Tomtom MyDrive Web Route planner....
    See option (2) for a .ITN Route....
    (1)... If you 'Save 'n' Sync' (GPX Track)... The device will follow the track like a Breadcrumb trail...
    The track is fixed, and the device will >> NOT << display the Stops or respond to Live Traffic... Also, a .GPX Track can be a little hit or miss for a complex journey
    I much prefer .ITN Routes, for me .GPX tracks for complex journeys are totally useless....
    I would suspect they would also be useless for most delivery drivers....

    (2).... The Route planned directly on the device is a .ITN Route the .ITN Route uses Stops... The Stops >> ARE << displayed on the screen when Navigating and the device will plan the route between the stops... An .ITN Route will respond to Live Traffic and any route deviations BUT an .ITN route will doggedly follow the stops in the order they were created, if you miss a stop, the device will continuously attempt to guide you to the missed stop... You have to cancel the problem stop on the device to avoid it....
    i.e... Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Current Route --> 'Skip Next Stop'....
    Note... You don't have to Stop at a Stop....
