Honda GPS

Post by Big Red Bertha »

I have tried downloading a route to my Honda GPS. I get the route downloaded, set destination and select go. The route starts calculating on the map screen and shows the proper address I want to go to. The problem is an old route shows up on the map display. I have tried clearing guidance and deleting routes, but this one old route keeps showing on the map display. What am I missing. Thanks for your help.

The problem I’ve had with this is the way the onboard system works versus the route we’ve planned. The onboard system has two choices for getting to a destination or waypoint. The shortest or the quickest. Neither of those might be what I had thought I planned in the trip planner route.

To overcome this I will sometimes add more waypoints than necessary to force it to go the route I want.
