A selection of routes that can be used by anyone. If you have any favourite routes that are not shown below please send them to [email protected] with a description, the more the merrier. The routes shown below are created using ‘MyRouteApp’ which is a free on line application from where you can create new, or open existing routes, edit them and then download to your Sat Nav using the FREE ‘Connector’ software. Full information and guidance is available on the site. If you have difficulties please contact me using the email address above. Click on any route image to open in ‘MyRoute-App’
Before using any of the routes listed here please select the map type that is correct for your device. The saved route may be in Default (openstreetmap), Here (MyRouteApp/Garmin) or TomTom. Also, and importantly, you may wish to avoid unnecessary detours by finding your Recalibration Mode in the Navigation section of your Sat Nav settings and setting it to ‘Off’. Remember to reset this mode for general usage afterwards.
