    Mr Orange has started up a triumph forum sat nav group in https://www.myrouteapp.com/activities
    it would be great to get a good spread of members so we could share each others favourite routes
    we have 5 members at the moment but the more the merrier :), it doesn't matter what make of sat nav you have
    If your interested give Mr O a shout and he will send you an invite :cool:

    Good idea yet again although I'm an iPhone/nav user so how things fit in will be a challenge.

    If you use iPhone you have to get a3rd party route planner like sygic to download your MyRoute-app routes to, this gives you the ability to create custom routes as apposed to the basic a to b route on from google or imap.

    Just to let you know, once you copy someones route into your own collection, you can then edit the route yourself, ie change waypoints,or make the route longer or shorter to suit your needs :cool:

    When you say COPY - do mean using the USE ROUTE function ?

    Or is there a way to copy ????

    yes the "use route" button copys the route into your collection, once you click "use route" a box will come up asking what you want to call the route click ok if you want to keep the same name,then it is added to your collection :cool:

    I think you mean, when you use the create route - save as GPX 1.1, thats what I use for the Garmin Zumo.

    What sat nav are you using? for older Garmins i think its a GPX1.0 for newer Garmins its GPX1.1 for other makes i imagine it will be the same, although they seem to have one especially for a Tom Tom..PS If you are a gold member you can transfer your route straight to your sat nav without saving as any file :cool:,(your route will still be saved in your route collection)

    I'm a tight git and don't have a sat nav.... I use google maps on my phone with headphones....

    I think the app will be handy to track and share any routes I go on. Will do some research tomorrow and see what I can come find out.
