    I've just invested in the Anquet UK mapping for my garmin venture cx.

    Having fun trying to transfer a known local route to it as a test. I keep getting a message that the maximum number of waypoints has been exceeded.

    The route I'm trying to download has 32 waypoints. According to a spec I found on the web my gps should be able to cope with a maximum of 50 waypoints.

    Has anyone else encountered this type of issue, and if so any suggestions on roughly how many waypoints a device can be expected to cope with? 32 waypoints doesn't seem unreasonable, it's only a 45k route.

    Cheers…….

    Are you sure there only 32 waypoints in the Anquet route? I find that I easily exceed that number.
    Are there other routes already in the Venture?

    As an aside – I find that I exceed the waypoint limit quite frequently on my Geko, so use the "Save as Tracklog" option in Anquet

    That must be a very old Venture to be limited to 50 waypoints. My Etrex H has 100 per route and (IIRC), the recent Legend etc has up to 250.

    I agree with Monsieur l'Ognion, either you have more than 32 or your waypoint memory is full. I find with the Etrex, even if I delete a route, it doesn't auto delete the waypoints associated with the route.

    Venture CX should be 500 waypoints max, but only 50 per route???

    Ah, problem is the thick tw*t driving the keyboard. Under GPS -> Configure in Anquet, it appears to auto set the limits for your GPS once you've detected it.

    Had set mine up with a maximum of 500 waypoints, but only 30 per route….. D'oh…

    Thanks for the advice fellas, 'Save As Tracklog' looks like a top tip 😀

    Any other Anquet issues, just let me know. I've been using it for a looooong time

    Edit: just had a look and it's at least 8 years
