    Hello all,

    I have a Garmin ZUMO 396lm unit and I'm having route name problems. What's happening is I'm creating routes (one hotel to another), but once I've loaded the routes on the GPS, the names of the routes are displayed as the first part of the address instead of the route name I gave it. This makes it very difficult to see which route I need to select. Is there a way to rename the routes once they're already uploaded? I could maybe elimnate the address and just go town to town, but I want directions to the individual places.
    Info: I'm creating the routes using Rever, saving them as .gpx files, and then putting them on a micro-sd card.

    Thank you,

    Robert

    I am not familiar with Rever but there may be some incompatibility with the GPX files it exports, I would create a Route using Garmin Basecamp and see if that retains the Route name you have selected

    On my old Nuvi 56 you would re-name a Route with :-
    Apps >> Trip Planner >> [select Trip (Route)] >> [Edit Trip] (top left 3 horizontal lines) >> Rename Trip

    Not a bad idea.
