    And they've removed the Google maps usage by the none paying plebs!!! Now Only streetmap, but haven't noticed much difference.

    That's me loaded 5 days worth of routes into my Garmin. As near as damn it to 1000 miles of two wheel, never getting lost, fun.

    Really like the export function, so easy compared to copy and paste the files over. L

    I have a Garmin 340L using My Route App, but still get the straight line routes, having to convert Tracks to sort it out, does anyone else have this problem?

    also just applied to join the group on the app.

    I have the Garmen 390LM and I've been using the myroute-app for a couple of years with no problems. The first time I experienced the straight line problem was after making up all the routes for the Scottish Road Trip that I organized in May,i only realized when I was on the tour and I didn't know to solve the problem you had to convert to track, luckily I knew all the roads anyway so it wasn't a problem, but I would have been really pi**ed off if it had happened somewhere I'd never been before.
    the straight lines doesn't happen every time I make a route up, but I've noticed that sometimes even when it has came up as straight lines the route actually works:confused:

    I've approved you today.

    I use the skip function, that cures the straight line problem for me, usually..

    You can delete a waypoint and it re calculates the route.
    Just put 2 waypoints close together at the start of the route then delete one.

    MyRoute-App export to TomTom MyDrive account works a treat. They say Beta but it has worked for me every time. Then using the new TomTom Rider 500/500, it wirelessly picks up that route automatically without you having to do anything or connect to PC - simples.

    Hi mount for GPS on Gen 3 Tiger 1200. Rectifies a glaring mistake by Triumph on a touring bike. Not perfect and you need to pad underneath the binnacle to stop the shake but it works for smaller Sat Navs.e.g. TomTom Rider 500/550.

    JFYI - there is a section in this month's RiDE mag specifically targeted at smart phone nav apps. I think there's only a couple that support GPX routes.

    I have used Sygic on my phone for a year or so as it supports up to 48 waypoints and takes the route directly from MyRoute-App. It has proved problematic with routes with a lot of waypoints, miss one and your screwed, it doesn’t have the sense to know you have passed a waypoint and are heading for the next one. If you close the route and reopen it it also tries to send you back to the start even if it is 100’s of miles away. I persevered for more than a year, gave up, bought a Rider 550 and it is so much less hassle, I’ll never go back to phone Navigation again for anything more than a simple A to B route.

    Ahha!!! What a coincidence that has been my bugbear with sygic but on this years gmu I discovered all the answers, something right came out of the gmu at least.
    1, no route planner is intelligent enough to know you meant to miss a waypoint, it’s an important mark on your route, well it could be a petroleum stop, meeting place, after all it’s only a machine!
    With sygic once you’ve missed a waypoint and want to travel on, put the map in 2d and zoom out or in to find the offending waypoint, tap on it and it’ll bring a little cross on it, tap the cross and it’s gone!
    The next bit is pretty complicated but there is a way!! And I’ll work it out!

    Yes, this is exactly what I have done before but stopping and deleting the waypoint is a bit of an arse, especially when others in a group are hanging on you! But if I use the same route from MyRoute-app and send to my "proper" Sat Nav it does seem to understand you have by-passed the waypoint and the next one is the one to navigate too. When I have inadvertently closed Sygic and restarted it I have ended up deleting 15 waypoints to start navigating part route from where I am - life's too short. o_O

    If you use the skip function on garmin, if you miss a way point, once back on the rest of the route, it forgets you've missed it, and carries on regardless. :cool:

    When you transfer a MyRoute-App direct to your TomTom MyDrive account and therefore your wireless TomTom500/550 you are creating a "Track" rather than a route with waypoints. The Sat Nav doesn't get upset about missing anything then.
