Garmin Zumo 665LM Question

I have had the Zumo awhile but decided to attempt a trip using the Basecamp software. It has been frustrating. When I create a trip and load it - the Zumo always does a recalc to the fastest route on the way and takes the interstate instead of the scenic route I planned in the software. Is there a way to get it to follow exactly what I create in Basecamp? I had been using Tyre software with an old TomTom and that was quite a bit easier by importing the itineraries. I posted on the Zumo forum but have had few responses.


Thanks in advance....

I added waypoints which helps somewhat. I also turned off the Auto Recalc on the device. What I am looking for is a way to mark the trip in the software so the device doesn't change it based on the device settings even if recalc is on. There may not be an answer.

Usually more waypoints are the answer. Are your 665 and the computer running the same version of the maps?


If you wish send me a copy of the route you built and I'll be happy to look at it in Basecamp (and or Mapsource) and on my 660. (PM me and I'll send you my email address.)

Yes - the maps are always up to date and synced. What I found was simple from the guys on the Zumo forum. Somehow I had done a reset and the Recalc in the unit was set back to Auto again. Once I set it back off it follows my loaded route exactly. I need to keep an eye on it. Thanks.


My second question then is I need to create a lot of routes quickly for here in the Ozarks for my riding group. What I have been doing is to setup a begin and destination points and then to set waypoints along the way and then to do a calculate the route. It seems to work ok but is slow for each map.

It there a way to let it generate a route between the beginning and destination (I know it does this), and then drag the route around onto certain roads graphically?

I will PM you. How should I export the file to send you? Thanks

Someone just gave me a link on Zumo to a video they did with Basecamp and it is perfect. Exactly what I want to do.

If I understand your question correctly, Yes. Establish your route with start and end waypoints. Let BaseCamp create the route. Now select the "Insert" icon from the tool bar -- it looks like a short fat pencil or crayon with a + sign. That's now your cursor. Click on your route. A black line between the two waypoints appears. Ignore it, it is just telling you between which waypoints you are inserting a point. Now click anywhere on the map that you want your route to go, as many places as you want and where you want between start and finish. BaseCamp will automatically recalculate your route as you are clicking on the map. Click back to the "Pan" hand, otherwise you'll keep adding points to your route. And if you end up inserting a point but find you don't want it, just open the route's properties box, view all the added points, select the one you don't want and delete it. Hope that helps.

Thanks guys - that did the trick!

Here is also some excellent general training documentation someone posted on Zumo for me.
