How do I get to the "Import Routes" screen without a computer

I have a route on the SD card that I want to bring into "My Routes". I can only get to the the "Import Routes" screen and then the "Done" screen if I connect the device by USB to a computer - but I only really want to get to the "Select routes to import" screen to select routes I already have on the SD card.

I've tried connecting an external USB drive and even just connecting a USB cable with nothing on the other end but it needs SOMETHING to make it think it's a computer at the other end.

I don't want to drag a laptop with me on a long trip just so I can get my device to the "Select routes to import" screen.

What do I need to do.
Thanks

    Hi
    @BikeRNick
    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.....

    Thanks. The secret was to take the SD card out and put it back in again, then it immediately suggested I had some routes to import. Cheers
