    Default Not sure where to put route.gpx

    I backed up my 2445 before doing a hard reset and the Garmin backup utility within Garmin express saved the favourites but not the routes. I have an old copy of route.gpx that looks correct in a text editor and have tried putting it into the gpx folder in both the sd card and on the device. It doesn't show the routes in the trip planner still. Am I doing it wrong or will I need to recreate the routes?

    The GPX file are files that contain only Way-Points
    Try to create or import a path with MapSource or Basecamp
    Then transfer it to your device and you should find it in Apps->Trip Planner

    When you create a Route using Trip planner on device, your "trips" are stored in \.System\Trips\ as xxxxxx.trip
    When you transfer a Route from Mapsource or basecamp to device, a gpx file is created in \GPX\ as temp.gpx
    When you then start your device, the temp.gpx file is read and the .trip files are created in \.System\Trips\

    If your route.gpx file contains one or more routes, rename route.gpx to temp.gpx and copy it in device \GPX\ folder
    Inside that folder you now should have:
    -Current.gpx [your Favorites]
    -Temp.gpx [your routes to be read at turn-on and transformed automatically to xxxxx.trip]
    -GarminExpressImport.gpx [your Garmin Express restored backup, which you must now erase because all the data in that file are now in current.gpx]

    If you don't erase that file, every time you make a "Clear all user data" or "Clear Nonvol" the current.gpx file is erased but not the GarminExpressImport.gpx
    So if you now restart your Nuvi, GarminExpressImport.gpx is going to be transformed to current.gpx
    But this is your old backup, not including the recent changes you have done since then.
    When you want to Backup your Favorites, just copy current.gpx to your PC, Clear your data on device, rename current.gpx to temp.gpx and copy it to the empty \GPX\ folder.

    Friendly Advice:
    DO NOT USE GARMIN EXPRESS, it creates more problems than solutions...

    Thanks for the reply. I'm guessing that the route.gpx isn't correct in some way as it hasn't made any trips appear in the trip planner. There weren't many anyway so it's no problem to recreate them.
