Did you make a garmin directory and a gpx sub directory on the sd car?

I used the online honda route planner and that automatically saved the route as the GPX file. For map source...I saved to my desktop and then copied to sd card. No directory or sub directory.

You need to import the GPX file to the GPS using the Menu system on the bike. I have imported many GPX files. I use Garmin's Mapsource to create a route, then save it to the SD card.

Issue solved...found another posting and followed the guidance....worked like a champ.

1 create a garmin folder
2 create sub folder gpx within garmin folder
3 place gpx files into gpx folder

If you have mapsource from garmin...create your route and when saving, use the pull down and save as the gpx file...
