help with mapping a route
can anybody give me an idiot step by step guide how to input 7 or 8 addresses so that the sat nav can put them in geographical order for my daily van run .....MY START 52
Select the last destination on your route and tap Drive.
Then tap Menu/Menu/Current Route/Add Stop
Now you can add the stopp. Do this again til you have added your 7 or 8 adresses.
In the Menü "current Route" you can save the Route or sort the stops.
or it works via the Map:
Hope it works for you.

I prefer .ITN Routes....
A Route planned directly on the device is a .ITN Route
An .ITN Route uses Stops and the device plans 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
If you want to force a different route, you simply add more stops
Note... When you add the extra Stops, Max Zoom right into the road
Don't put the stop on the wrong side of a dual track road (Journey loop back errors)
Don't put the stop up a side-road... It may guide you though a built-up area via side streets back to your route, instead of a u-turn
Don't put the stop on a traffic Island, always place a guidance stop further up road on the route after the required traffic island exit....
Using the MyDrive Web Route planner....
See the MyDrive Web Route planner....
Using a .ITN Route planned on the MDW Route planner...
The latest version of MyDrive Web Route planner....
For .ITN Routes with NO Stops... The Menu Shows
For .ITN Routes with Stops........... The Menu Changes to
The MyDrive Web Route planner only
the route to the device as a Destination... Or if you add Stops it send it as a Route
(But it is not automatically saved in MyRoutes)
If you are using .ITN route and 'Send Stops'
see my workaround below
Complex Twenty Stop .ITN Route Rider 400
Be Aware .ITN Routes....
If your starting point
your present location, there's a
When using the 'Send Stops' option, during an "A" to "B" route transfer and when
'A' IS NOT your present location...
The device drops Location "A"
This bug also applies to Multi-Stop/Waypoint routes... 'A' to 'B' to 'C' to' D' to 'E' etc...

This is the workaround method I use....
