Would appear so :Smile

Found another site that says you can drag and drop into the new files folder on the device, but that dosn't work with the Blean routes Nick posted up :B

Don't panic Anna, i *think* i have figured it out Smile

I downloaded the file and dragged it into the new files folder on the Garmin. They show up in courses and gives me a big green start button when i select them, so looking promissing. I have a 2gb sd card, so will fill it with as many Peak's gpx files as i can Smile We will make it home alive...we will make it home alive....we will..... Wink

Ok, managed to get OSM base-map on there, and a TCX file as well as 2 Blean GPX's. Am i right in thinking that TCX's are better to follow but generally navigate the shortest route, which takes you off the desired track? There is an option in the garmin's menu to turn off re-routing, so would this give me turn by turn instructions with prompts and keep me on the track?

There is no fcking manual!! There is a quick start guide and that is it, and i have been asking Google all day! FFS i've gone from not having a fcking clue what to do with the thing first thing this morning so give me a fcking break, if your not willing to help/advise then don't bloody post >Sad  As you can possibly tell i am a bit stressed from figuring out what i have already, and only have 4 days to get used to it!

I can't believe that garmin sell their gps units without operating instructions. Did it come with a cd rom? Have you looked on there?
