I've recorded various routes on my TomTom - and can play them back on the device - but now I want to back up and share them with another user. How do I do this please?

    It depends on which device you have.
    Please update your profile to specify, then others can give the appropriate information

    We can only retrieve the gpx on a GPS not the itineraries

    Hi
    @Easy_Driver
    Method... 'Micro SDHC Card'
    The example is transferring a Route to a Device, but you can transfer both ways

    To transfer a route to your NAV4 device using a Micro SD Memory Card.....
    Format you memory card on your PC to FAT32 format
    Copy you .GPX or .ITN route file to your Memory Card

    My GO 5000 showing no routes installed...
    (It's The same method for my Rider 400 & 550)

    Insert the SD Memory card into the Card Slot, the device will recognize the Memory Card.....

    Method... 'Easy route upload'....

    Using the Rider400 as an example... The Rider 400 will give you direct access to a small buffer/transfer area of the Rider 400 Main Memory... You can also access your Micro SD Card, you can drag & drop your .ITN or .GPX route files directly to the Rider 400 Memory buffer/transfer area or the Micro SD Memory card over a secure system

    This update applies to the Rider 40/400
    With the "Easy route upload"... You can connect your TomTom Rider to your PC using a USB cable, then drag and drop your route files directly to and from your device’s memory using a file explorer program.....

    (1)... Connect Your device via USB, this screen appears on the Rider 400
