How to make Zumo Routes
If you are making a route for our club Jeff Goldstein put this waypoint map together of our common stops so you don't have to keep searching for them in Mapsource.
You will find a lot of step-by-step in the Mapsource Help File-
Bill Muneio made a tutorial on creating a basic route for your Garmin GPS with Map Source.
(Make sure to click on the icon to the right of the speaker icon so you can see the map in a larger view.)
And if you want to convert Google Maps to your Zumo check out Cameron's
Using Google Maps and a Garmin Zumo. Also check out How to create a "My Map" in Google Maps.
Inexpensive Garmin GPS
The Garmin Zumos are made for motorcycles, are waterproof and come ready to mount on your bike, that's why
they sell a starting price of $599, and go up from there. If you don't want to spend that much but still want to be
able to make/transfer your own routes, our GPS guru Bill Muneio suggests the Nuvi 755T or 765T (pictured above) and
they can be found used online for around $75. You'll need a way to mount the GPS...We suggest Ram Mounts . It's so much fun to be able to make your routes on your computer, transfer them to your Garmin, and then listen to her guide you. It is worth the $'s!
