I would like to be able to prepare a route on my PC and then download it to the NAVI.

2008 GL1800
\'81 GL1100
\'85 BMW K100rt
\'91 Nighthawk 750
None of my bikes make much noise.

I agree with you ! Why not be able to go to the PC, and program a very specific route on say...Google maps...or some other program. Then click on a "send to" button to send the planned trip directly to our NAVI systems ? I can "send" a Google map now to any email or cell phone as a text message, so it ought to be doable.

That would be nice. If Honda ever does add this feature, I hope we can still use it on our existing bikes with OEM NAVI systems. Perhaps replace one of the memory cards in the system presently on the bike.

Hi Bob

I realize that your post is somewhat dated (???), but have you tried Tyre? It allows you to plan a route, and then save it in various formats. I regularly use it on my TomTom Rider 2. The only snag you sometimes pick up, is that Tyre's maps are more up to dat that TomTom's, or vice versa. Check it out:

If you can\'t explain it simply, you don\'t understand it well enough.

jluvs2dive and I were just talking about this yesterday.

You can save a Google map and send it as a route to your gps.

Make your Google map and follow these instructions

Once you have your GPX file install in it in Garmin following this procedure.

hedid a route for a ride that we are doing at Nassir 4, he emailed it to me. I installed it on my 780 Garmin and it worked fine..

Good luck

We own a 2007 Goldwing with 65,000 KM ( 39,000 Mi. ) on it.

The best part about owning a wing is you know what your next bike is going to be. ( We know, we just bought our 3rd Goldwing )
