I have the 2012 GW with a trip planner/ card reader mounted in the rear bag. My dad has a GW trike with a GPS mounted on the handle bars.
The problem is that he cannot plan routes, stops, etc. like myself with this exsisting set up. The GPS as like all others has it's own ideas of how to get there.

Question: is there an after market system that can be bought and intalled to fix this.

My TomTom has a feature called "Itineraries" where you can set up waypoints that you want to hit on your route, which forces the GPS to route the way YOU want it to, instead of its default. I've used it a few times, and it works quite well.
