Reverse Route

Hi Guys
I am planning to ride some of the Belgium route in the next month or so but starting in Flanders and riding the other way.
I know this may seem a daft question but will my Garmin sat nav (Montana) work with a gpx file this way or will it cause problems.
This is my first time using this so am not sure

Thanks for the help.

No it won't be a problem. The TET gpx files are 'tracks' as opposed to 'routes' the latter would be direction dependent, though easy enough to reverse if needed. If you've loaded the tet gpx file onto your montana you will essentially have a coloured line to follow ( track ) rather than a sat nav style direction prompted setup ( route ).
