    This is nice. i will try it right away. 

    I read below the custom directions are sent as well. Is there a way to send the timing estimates ?

    Hi Pierre - route transfer is very easy using this feature, but there are some trade offs. The Garmin API doesn't enable us to send coursepoints with turn arrows, so custom directions cannot be transferred using the Garmin Sync feature I'm afraid. I think the reason for this is that Garmin tries to generate turn instructions instead. We did initially experiment with sending directions in coursepoints without a turn arrow but this caused confusion, so we changed this a while back. We do send coursepoints for any labels of symbols you added to the directions though. Timing estimates are also not supported at the moment.

    Hi

    I tested it. Works nicely indeed. I noticed it creates a mountain bike route and I could not find a way to change it to road bike. Not a big  issue.
