    GMXT PPC Route Transfer from MapSource

    Hello,

    Can somebody help me with the following issue.

    Background
    Device = HTC HD2 Phone / WinMobile 6.5 running Garmin XT 5.00.20w
    Computer = PC with Windows XP Pro Mapsource 6.16.1 (Patched)
    Map Data = City Navigator North America NT 2011.10

    Currently all features are working on both devices, I can run the apps, calculate routes etc. I can also active sync the device and transfer maps and waypoints via MapSource.

    My issue is that I can not create a route in MapSource and transfer it to Garmin XT on the PPC. When I initiate the transfer, the screen of my device states "Importing Routes" and upon completion I am not able to find the route under Manage My Data / Routes. I can create a route on my device and it will transfer to MapSource without a problem.

    #1 Anybody know why I may be having this problem?
    #2 If you install GMXT to your SD Card, where would these route files be stored? Shouldn't there be some kind of folder for route and gpx files? I would assume that is where MapSource copies the data to?
    #3 On a side note, if I copy a GPX file to my SD card, why is there no feature in GMXT that will let me import it? I have been through every screen of Manage My Data and there is nothing for importing routes or waypoints.

    Thank you for the help.

    Since I got no reply on the first post, how about helping a guy out and telling me if you have successfully uploaded a route from Mapsource 6.16.1 to Garmin XT 5.00.20w on a windows mobile pocketpc. At least if I knew someone was having success, I could stop banging my head against the wall over this simple issue.

    Anyone....

    Cheers!

    Re: GMXT PPC Route Transfer from MapSource

    Hello bjjfc, thank you for trying to help.

    I am finally able to get things working, but I tried to use v6.16.2 (patched) and that does not work. I don't know who patched 6.16.2 and 6.16.1, but they missed something on the new 6.16.2 release as it DOES NOT correctly upload routes to GMXT.

    What does work
    Download: Get v6.16.1 (patched)

    Peace

    Re: GMXT PPC Route Transfer from MapSource

    Digging a bit deeper and I see that the problem has something to do with routes and not the version of GMXT or Mapsource. I am now using Mapsource v6.16.2 (patched) and it works correctly for certain routes. For Example, if I route from 33 Main St Somewhere to 43 Elm Street Somewhere, the route transfers but does not show up on my GPS (HTC HD2 PPC) but if I route from Main St Somewhere to Elm Street Somewhere via GPS coordinates, it does work. I'm not sure why Mapsource and GMXT don't seem to be able to transfer routes using actual addresses.

    Will keep digging. It would be nice if others using GMXT would share their experiences.

    Regards
    Cyko

    Lightbulb Maps and software suitable for Mio A201 pocket PC or PDA

    I am looking for the maps and software for my Mio A201 Pocket PC.
    I have found Garmin Mobile XT but that is not for Pocket PC i believe?
    It is working with Windows Mobile 5.

    Garmin Mobile XT is for a variety of mobile devices, including Pocket PC. Have a look at the Garmin Tutorials section of this website, and you will find an easy to follow step by step setup tutorial with pictures.
