    help Etrex 20X - route creation for hiking

    Can I plot a route that does not snap to roads shown on map? As a hiker I do not normally follow roads, so I want to practice around home using backalleys and across open ground, but the route planner snaps to roads even if this is a completely different route. Using Basecamp to plan route, then want to follow on Etrex 20X. A related issue - can anyone confirm I cannot set hiking/snowshoeing speeds, but only speeds for different road types so the assumption is you are travelling by vehicle? Thanks for any help for this newby.

    In Basecamp select Hiking profile for planning your tracks, after creating it, right click it, select routing profile and choose hiking customizing your route options and adjust average speed
    You have to navigate to get to the good.
