Did this video help you?

Searay: Great video, thanks. Is there a way to avoid unpaved paths/roads ? I make routes for road cycling.

Phil Waud: Kaspersky flags Tyre as a trojan, not going to continue. Thanks anyway.

Dave Wilson: How is this viewed/used once loaded into the Garmin. Is there a 'routes' section?

Wayne Jarratt: Ive just tried, it imports into Tyre to Travel ok. However when I press Import for the second time, I get the following message: This file doesn't have a valid format or it doesn't contain any useful data. I was using the new version of Google maps, so I reverted back to Classic Maps and I still get the message. Do you have any ideas?

Konrad Listl: Bitte,der Ton ist viel zu leise

Joe Patroni: Why open up a new can of worms here 5:00?

Thomas Fallon: Thank you! What a great tutorial. I was using Google maps originally and attempted to export to Garmin, as I had in the past and noticed that feature had been disabled. After spending an hour or more on a map in Google, I had no place to send it to, until I found your link. In a matter of minutes, my route was saved, further tweaked, and exported thanks to your very well done tutorial.

Dungu Knak: Hi JB just wanderin did U get those BASE file from I downloaded tyre yes But Couldnt Find BASE is this file on my GarminGPS though, please show me or PM (PrivateMessage) Mee

CanAmSteve: Probably should mention this method uses a secondary program that does not work on Macs

David Jordan: Nice and straight forward, thanks

Melih Dayan: Uzun zamandır arıyordum. Çok teşekkür ederim. Türkiyeden selamlar (:

xuimod: Great video. I learned so much from watching this. Thanks.

Allen Conway: Excellent video - really helpful - this is going to change my driving life! Especial thanks for making me aware of the possibility that you can find yourself driving round loops!

David Crossley: Top video this has saved me loads of time, really appreciate the time you've taken making this and other videos 

misiek7676: really cool idea. (however i was not able to follow these instructions with the new google maps.. Could you pls help? ;)

G Zimmermann: Thanks for the Base Camp videos - I had no idea it could do all these things. It has transformed my route planning.

Julius Petersson: ok I got it, I just slauthered 220 freakin waypoints and am currently on only 25 points lol, haha, its insane how many "retarded" waypoints there are in the routes that don't even do anything at all. I wonder how many waypoints I will have to kill off on my longer routes, jesus christ, I'll probably kill off 75438759843 waypoints more then xD Anyways., thanks for the video, really helpful and it's so nice of you to actually do a good, proper tutorial on it. THANKS!

william smyth: hi Iam plotting a route on google and transferring to my garmin touring plus. All is fine as per your video. When i go into tyre program i can import map ok from google, but their is no garmin listed along top menu, just shows tomtom. Why is this or how can i get file transferred to my garmin device ?

rhood101: thank you for this video

Julius Petersson: i have a route with 250 waypoints, all are needed but my garmin cant handle more than 50. How do I do? I cant take away 200 waypoints cuz it freaks it all up and its not even a very long route either. Please help me with this :) I use a garmin dakota 10.

Stephen Hare: Great video thanks. A query please? When I plan a route in Google Maps using "Avoid Highways", Tyre ignores that route completely and plans its own using only the waypoints and dragged points. Do you know if there a way around this please? I ride a motorbike and am not keen on using motorways so the "Avoid Highways" route option is really useful - if only I could get that route onto my Garmin.

Willis T: Does it work with Garmin 260W ? I did this but nothing is in my data files....

antaljanee: Does that mean I need a half an our to import my route and reprocess the route manually? o_O

msmakotokino: I believe that you cant UL any customs routes to any Nuvi devices, according to Garmin.

Miguel Madruga: Has anyone tried this in Garmin 276C?

彭道堯: Thank you from Taiwan. I should have done that years ago, now you have taught so well.

Edward Styles: +EinkOLED yes it is i thought that too but just go to preferences and change from tomtom to garmine

Stephen Lane: A very useful video, but it really shows Tyre's limitations. For a long route you would spend hours checking and deleting waypoints to get a route that a) load and b) go where you really want.

motorcyclefreedom: Thanks for the time in making this, will try it out today.

moby_gr: Thank you!!!

bariateria: Is this a sat nav only für bikes or can i use it in the car too?

jobybyrne: I've looked at the specification and done some research. Unfortunately I don't believe the Nuvi 40 supports custom routes transferred from Basecamp or Mapsource.

jobybyrne: Yes not all models support custom routes unfortunately. I used a Zumo 660 for these demos which has a lot of features.

Joe Smith: If it creates more than 500 points the NUVI 550 will not accept it. is there a way to force fewer points for longer routes? thanks for the helpful video!!

jobybyrne: It works in the car and on the bike. The 550 and 660 contain everything you need for the car and the bike including dual mounts and power supplies. I'll make a video of my setup soon. It takes under 5 seconds to transfer from the car to the bike if they are side by side.

Archer Koch: Yes, there is a way! Check my channel for the solution!

jobybyrne: Unfortunately not all devices support custom routes.

jobybyrne: The easiest way I've found is to export the route to Basecamp and trace a new route over it. It's a bit tedious but you've a much better chance of navigating the route you actually want and it'll have far fewer points.

jobybyrne: The easiest way I've found is to transfer the route as a track and then plot a new route over the track, it's a bit tedious, however, it gives you a much better chance of being able to navigate the route you want.

jobybyrne: You could try installing the latest version of Tyre. It may not support all devices. I believe Tyre is more aligned to TomTom than Garmin. Sounds stupid but it could also be the cable. I had an issue with my Zumo 550 and hard reset it and reinstalled everything before trying another cable. Turns out the cable was the issue.

jobybyrne: You need to check your hardware. The audio works just fine.

RiseAgainstCLIPS: do you live that close to hyde park? nice and can I ask if you miss a way point on a garmin; does it just skip the point? also I'm planning on following a google maps route (which someone else has uploaded) all through europe. From netherlands to kaliningrad, russia. So I assume I will have to use that basecamp program to delete all the unnecessary waypoints. I'll youtube inbox you the link but but do you think there is an easier way of making sure its ok for the garmin? It could take awhile

jobybyrne: The Zumo 550 and 660 have all the gear required to use them in the car and on the bike. I´ll post a video of my set up when I get back from my holidays. To put it simply though I can transfer my Zumo from the bike to the car in less than 10 seconds. It comes with 2 mounts and 2 power cables one for each application.

RiseAgainstCLIPS: if i have to delete everything for this route.

jobybyrne: No worries. Anytime.

Brian Adams: What about on the NEW Google Maps..no send or link button..

Ken Kucel: Thank you Joby! That was great!!

EinkOLED: Garmin isn't shown on the free version of tyre

bariateria: I think my Garmin has less features than yours. Cannot find the icon "custom routes"

Michael Mulvaney: The route does not show up on my Nuvi 40. Any ideas?
