Honda Trip Planner

Post by mariogrotto »



Hi to everyone from Italy. I have just bought a Honda Goldwing GL1800 2013 second hand and I am trying to use Honda Trip Planner to organize my trips. I was able to export my planned trip to the SD trip planner memory card but after I iserted it into its slot on the Nuvi equipment my system does not find it. Can somebody please help me??

Create a folder on the SD card called garmin. Transfer the maps to this folder. I think the GPS is looking for maps in the Garmin Folder.

Actually you have to have a sub directory in the Garmin directory called GPX. Put your trip files in there. ie (SD Card)\Garmin\GPX\tripfile.gpx

Are you dragging/dropping the gpx file onto the "GPX" folder? or are you dropping it in the column to the right of the "GPX" folder?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

The gpx file should be in the GPX folder.
