How to export a route from Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010 to Garmin Nuvi

Although probably off topic here, you will find that one of the bigger problems with using any Nuvi for geocaching is that it does not tolerate getting wet, so be very careful to protect the device at all times.

Good point t923347 - I know motorcyclists always use the Garmin Zumos. They are "vibration-tested, waterproof and built with fuel-resistant plastics to withstand the elements" - check 'em out: Garmin Zumo.

Thanks for the heads up.

Jax,

Re: the "recalculating", that's exactly what the Nuvi is supposed to do. Once you deviate from the route it has to figure out a new way to get you to your destination. It has no choice. Streets&Trips will do the same thing. I'm not sure what you would expect it to do in such a situation??

The other thing about geocaching with a Nuvi (except the 5xx models that have features designed for it) is that they don't make it easy to carry the cache info along with you. You either need the information printed out on paper or carry it in a PDA or laptop. Or you need to figure out how to get them loaded into the Nuvi as custom POIs.

Why are the GPX files different sometimes. Sometimes only 1 row, and will not import in Garmin, and other times multi-rows and import perfect?

Could you provide a little information? Where did you get the GPX files from? What do you think/expect they should contain?
