Doc

I use the MyRouteApp (Gold Membership yearly @ 23/y) - www.myrouteapp.com/en   :123A:
Where you can route with different base maps, ie Google, TT, OSM & HERE(Garmin)
It can also talk to various GPS's directly via USB connection

There is also an Android / I-phone Version of MyRouteApp  :152:

Then when I have finished the routing on the PC, it auto syncs it to the mobile App and then when downloading a GPX file on the smartphone, it recognises / associates GPX files with the Garmin Smart-link App and automaticly sends it to my zūmo 346LMT-S via Bluetooth (if connected) and loads it into the saved "Trip" folder for immediate routing :123A:

So I can spend winter months preparing all my daily holiday routes and then only take a smartphone with me and load the GPX files up / or modify them easily when travelling  :biker1:
