    I have a route with around 30 waypoints (most of which are "shaping points")

    When I open the route, I expect to see the big green "GO" button to start routing, but it doesn't show (it does for smaller routes).

    If I click the left side button (to open menu) the device hangs completely.

    Any Idea?
    Route was created in Basecamp

    As far as I am aware the Etrex 30x does not allow mulit-point routing, without this feature your unit can't handle multiple Waypoints in a Route, try creating the route by clicking on points of the map (creating shaping points), rather than using waypoints in the Route

    Thanks for the reply.
    You can definitely create a route of several waypoints, I've done it many times in the past.

    I managed to solve this one by creating a new route with less "shaping points"
