Have you got any GPXs for routes up in the peaks?  I go up there with work and the last one I did I got from STW and it was disappointing

Obviously haven't RTFM properly.
On the off chance that garmin haven't printed that in the manual / software help, go to google and type your question in there. Stop being so damn lazy! Help yourself this once.

The lazy bit about not searching himself- I agree  ;D.

According to this site (and it was very useful for my 350 and 750) the instructions are non existant for the 800!

TFM is fking useless and I was all over Google before asking here! Found a dummies guide that told me to download loads of plug inns and can now search and upload routes from Garmin Connect, but all I've found out about getting other peoples routes on there is that it can be done, but doesn't tell you how. I only have till the 30th to figure this thing out, hence why I'm asking you guys. Instructions for the 800 are indeed non existant! And that's the site I found Paul, but that still didn't tell you how to get routes onto it :B

Oh and thanks for the links to Peak's routes guys Smile
