GARMIN 340 TET Wales

Post by Whitegsrider » Thu May 02, 2019 9:09 pm

Hi, I've got a Garmin 340, downloaded base camp, but when I've tried to download the GPX route I can't open it. It downloads, but won't open in the software on my laptop. I'm hoping to do a few days of the TET in Wales later this month and would like to have it on my GPS. What am I doing wrong?
Ta, John

Do you mean a garmin zumo 340?

The gpx should open fine on basecamp on your desktop

The tet is a "track" not a "route"

if by 340 you mean zumo 340, you must import the track, go through menu application, plots or track then via the small tools (top left) import the track.

But, but, with my 395lm zumo for long tracks impossible to make an import, I had to divide the original track to have smaller sections and sometimes reduce the number of points in the track (compare after reduction with the original track), otherwise the GPS saturated, was planting with refusal to import the trace.

Good luck

I can download the GPX from here, and it is visible in my download file, bu I can't move it to Basecamp. The import function is greyed out. It's a zumo 340lm, and I'm using windows 10.
I can cut and paste the file and put it in another folder but I can't put it in Basecamp.

In basecamp clic on my collection (in library) or directory in my collection, if your are not in my collection i think the import fonction is grey

I'm in My Collection, but I just can't put anything there, or import. It comes up with an error message. "Unknown error opening import file"

Very strange ... the import never work ?

Perhaps launch basecamp in admin mode or delete et install again basecamp

There seems to be a glitch downloading it in windows. Try on chrome
