    What is the red "X"?

    I'm new to this instrument and can't find the answer in the manual: A red "X" appears on my screen. What is it?

    When you look down the road, it seems to never end - but you better believe it does.

    The Red circle with the red "X" only appears while you are navigating a route.
    It means Stop the route.

    Check page 6 in the owner's manual for more details - several buttons are available; pdf is 1.6 mb and attachment limit is about 1 mb.

    I have spent hours mapping a trip, little over 4K miles. I go to load it on the NAV VI and It will not import because the trip is too long. I don't understand. I have loaded much longer trips with no problem.

    Is it one endless route or many day trips strung together? I do each day at a time.

    Routes are limited to 30 waypoints per trip, although you can have up to 125 non-alerting shaping points between waypoints. If you use more waypoints, the Nav will break the trip into several trips, but this forces a recalculation that may not follow your intended path.

    Tracks , which do not provide any navigation instructions, can have 15,000 points each.

    This link should be saved by everyone who uses Basecamp with a recent Zumo or Navigator and have had to rely on trial and error to discover how Garmin expected these two products to work together.:
    https://issuu.com/jfheath/docs/zumo_590_and_basecamp_2017


    Think of it as the route building manual that Garmin should have provided with every recent Zumo or Navigator. Definitions of terms, what the options mean, how BC interacts with the Zumo/Navigator units, how and when the route is recalculated, transportation modes vs Activity Profiles, and much more, all clearly explained and illustrated with examples. This article answers so many questions it should be required reading. After two years of frustration, aborted rides, web searching and experimentation I'd only learned a portion of what is compiled here.

    The author, John Heath, still revises and updates the article as new information comes to light. To be certain that only the most current and correct version is used, he requests that only links to this web version be shared.

    John also has a YouTube playlist on this topic: 13 BaseCamp Videos for PC - Issues when using with Zumo Trip Planner In his words: "The video link is also a clickable link on the last page of section 3 in the document itself. This isn't a BaseCamp 'How To' reference - there are plenty of those around much better than I could create - but these relate specifically to the issue of preparing routes for use with the Zumo Trip Planner units."

    One route, 5 waypoints. I will have to see how many shaping points.

    I have the article mentioned. It doesn't apply to my problem. I got the route to import. I shows the correct mileage and all the point but poly 1/3 of the trip shows up on the map. I think I will start from scratch or just put in places I want to visit and use paper maps.

    Wow, a route that long with only five waypoints. As mentioned earlier, I'd recommend breaking it up into daily routes. Name the routes in a way that makes sense to you. I'm here on the east coast. If I were heading west, I'd start with W1, W2, W3 etc. For my return trip, they'd be E1, E2, E3 etc. I also add the from/to locations into the route name, such as W1 Home- Columbus 500. The number at the end of the name is the mileage.

    I was trying a new technique I learned from a tutorial. It is probably better for a short jaunt. I cleaned up the memory card, re-routed using a different technique and in less than 45 minutes it is on the GPS and everything is there. The way I did it this time was very easy. I think after panning so many trips I finally trusted my own way. Eight way points. Start, stop, 5 motels and one restaurant. Several shaping points. On a long trip I don't plan day rides. I get reservations where I think it may be busy and near natural stopping places. Other than that I have no daily expectations. Once I am heading out or home I don't have any idea how long I will ride that day. Once I set sail home I do some long days. Only a few times have I had a hard time finding a room.
