Copy between differing device versions, and using Itineraries on newer models
I've begun using the MyRouteApp.com site and it is really awesome, although I have experienced an issue in that the route downloader inexplicably will not connect (on my laptop which we have on the tour with us) to the Rider 410.
This is made worse by the fact the Rider 410, despite having the same interface as the Rider 500 will not link to share routes, no matter which way around this is attempted. The Rider 410 does work on the owner's own computer, just not on this one (Windows 10 on both).
I'd already discovered that my early rider model will not accept routes from the 410 (and vice versa) and kind of appreciated that as they are clearly on different operating systems.
What has really annoyed me is the apparent lack of ability to edit itineraries once they are loaded. The reason we've had problems with the download and discovered the routes aren't shareable between devices is that we've decided, due to weather and time constraints, to alter some of the routes we planned prior to the trip. It should be as easy (or easier, given expected progression in development) to just tell the guys which waypoints - on the routes we already loaded before coming away - have been changed or removed.
My older model allows great flexibility with adding, removing or moving waypoints, but there seems to be no option whatsoever to do this on the newer models. Has this feature been removed completely? Is it doable with some sort of smartphone App? I don't own one and therefore don't currently have the inclination to learn for myself, but if someone can answer briefly, can the same route management be done on the 410/500 series as it could be done on my older Rider 4GD00 model, I would love to know!
I guess the main reason I'm curious is that eventually I suppose I'll need a new navigation device, but right now it seems I'll be very dissatisfied with the current Rider models' abilities.
