I was very careful making my route on the Honda Trip Planner website and checked it over before installing it on the bike.
Today as I am on the route, somehow when the route got transferred to the GPS, one way point got moved and wanted me to get off the road I was on.
What got really weird is that the GPS said, "Arriving at Intermediate Destination", then it froze.
I guess it realized it was at the intermediate destination where it was supposed to be, but I wasn't according to the map and it didn't know what to do.
It stayed froze for about 1/4 mile and then it started in with its "make a U-turn here" routine and on and on so I had to terminate the route.
When I got home, I went on the Honda Route planner and it does show this way point with an address on the correct road and I should have been able to drive straight and pass the way point.
Has anyone come up with a fix for the route not copying to the GPS correctly?
It does make planning routes worthless unless there is a way to fix this.
I know there is a way to delete way points, but can you do that while you are on the route?
If I stop the route, it will not allow me to continue or join the route, but instead want me to start all over at the beginning.

Yes, you can delete a point while in motion and following a route.

This can be useful if the mapped route was slightly off the path, or if you decide to skip a point (or points) to shorten a trip.


With the map screen displayed press ENT to get the map menu line at bottom of screen (if it's not already there)

Select 'clear guidance'
It will bring up choices:
- one choice is 'clear all route' (cancel guidance)
- others are a list of points it is still guiding towards (ones that you have already been to will not show)
---- highlight and select the one you want to delete (you can only delete one at time, so will need to repeat if there are several you want to skip

Take a closer look at Kurviger, the 3rd sticky on top , JMO but is a lot easier than HTP and Basecamp , I have had no issue with the program (Except your typical learning curve) it works very well with the Harmon GPS.
Give it a try!
