Garmin edge 705 navigation question
I have an edge 705 and just recently updated the firmware to ver. 3.3. Big mistake, I can't seem to navigate any of my routes (GPX) anymore. Every time I try to navigate a GPX route the unit shuts off before the route is calculated. I was able to get a route to work but it kept "short cutting" my route at a point where two segments crossed, effectively cutting out 15 miles.
I'm trying to find a way to continue to use the 705 without having to move to the 800. I would like to create a ride on ridewithgps then load the file to the Garmin. I would like turn by turn cues, with the visual purple arrow and street name on the device. And most importantly I do not want the device to short cut the route. I think the tcx files work like that, operate like a cue sheet with the turn alerts etc, but I am still pretty new at this.
So if you don't mind I'd like to hear what tips any of you might have. I appreciate any help you can give me, thanks.
