- Garmin 800 settings.
You need to set the turns and off course warnings for each course individually, and also when the course has not yet started – I think they do not change effect if you are already part way through the course.
So, stop the course, changing the settings, then start the course.
I tend to ride just with “off course warnings” on when I’m on an off road route, but the turn alert is quite handy sometimes on road routes I don’t know.Posted 4 years ago
Ok, im having a few issues with the setting up of my 800.
I have the version with the UK 1:50,000 mapping already installed on an SD Card.
. What i want it to do is to follow an uploaded route with only the off course warnings sounding if i go off course.
My steps to achieve this so far have been.
1. Plot route on Getamap and save as a GPX file.
2. Upload to RidewithGPS and save it with the name i want.
3. Copy it to New Files folder and bosh its on the 800.
so far so good.
On the 800 my settings are
1. Turn Guidance – off
2. Off Course Warnings – on
3. Course points – OFF
I have tried all variations of these settings to try and achieve the following:
To the problem. Once i start navigating and following the route a screen is continually popping up telling me where the next turning is and the distance to it.
I thought that having the course points to off would stop this but apparently not.
What settings are you using for off road routes?
I know the problem is me but I’m getting annoyed :-0Posted 4 years agoantaresMember
this is always a good place to look for answers to any problems you might have with the settings, coz like you say the manual is useless.Posted 4 years ago
