    Hi Mike - have a look at our guide to downloading routes to Garmin devices - this contains detailed instructions.  As a Premium member you can also use our Garmin Sync feature, to automatically transfer selected routes.

    I have a brand new edge 830 and i cannot see how i import aplotaroute into garmin Connect and then to my device- so far unimpressed with the whole situation as wasted 2 hours trying to figure it out ! any help for someone who is not that technically minded ( at least not these days  when the abacus was around maybe!)

    Hi

     

    Have uploaded a number of routes to a word 10 document but they differ in terms of clarity despite all looking the same when first uploaded to a desktop folder.

     

    Any suggestions on how to resolve much appreciated

    Thanks

    Do you have a list of all sat navs that the routes can be downloaded to?

    Thanks, Louise

    Hi Allan - there are instructions for where to copy the file to at the start of this topic.  I would recommend downloading as a TCX file rather than GPX for the Edge 820.

    Don't know why I just can't get it to work. I have a Edge820. So I follow your instruction to download the GPX file. I connect my Edge to my PC but I do not know where to copy the file to. In the end, I don't know where I copied to but it became my activities as though I have already riden it.

     

    Thanks

    Hi John,

    Yes, the TCX file has them, so I guess it is something to do with the way the Garmin is reading them. I actually also tried with GPX files, and found that a GPX track (not route) does produce an elevation profile on the Garmin. I'm not really sure what the other costs/benefits of using a GPX v's TCX are, but I guess I will proceed with GPX files.

    Thanks,

    Rowan
