    Default Help to design a route on M4A please

    I am trying to plot a route on T4A and I am experiencing some problems. I can do the basic route layout for everyday, but I cannot make changes and there are parts of the route where T4A would not allow me to go, and keeps on plotting detours thousands of kilometers long. We will be going n safari in three weeks time and I would really appreciate it if someone in the Kenridge, Kenever, Durbanville area can send me a PM if it will be possible for them to assist me. Thank you very much in advance.

    I presume you are using Garmin Base Camp on your PC to plot your route?

    If so go to Edit - Settings - Activity profile.
    Here you can specify how it must route - only tarred roads, avoid gravel etc. You can stipulate what roads it must avoid.

    Thanks Paul, much obliged. I appreciate your advice and, yes, it is in Garmin Base Camp on an iMac that Iím trying to plot. Iíll follow your advice and let you know what happened. Just a question: I set a route from Durbanville to Ai-Ais and then decided to change it from Durbanville to Hobas, but I cannot get that route to change on Base Camp. Furthermore, how do I make a route from a series of pins or points that I have placed along a planned route in the desert?

    If you open your route (see pic) and just delete the aiAis entry that should do it. Just right click Aiais when your cursor is over it and then press delete. (When you right click a box will open up for cut paste delete etc).

    At the bottom of the pic there is a button Recalculate which will recalc everything.
