Hello All,

Great product firstly! One question though I am interested to know if you can enter waypoints for a defined destination?

Strange question you may ask... well occasionally when I enter a destination I get directed through the city (Melbourne) area or a high traffic area when I know that I can go a better way BUT I don't know how to go all the way if you follow me.

An example... I need to go to Footscray from Eltham and I am directed to go through a high traffic area (Carlton etc)... the Ring Rd would be a better option but want guidance from the ring rd once I close to the destination. I could just go all the way I know and follow the GPS from there I suppose...

Anyway interested to hear feedback.

Hi I have the same model and I am in Melbourne as well so what I do is drive there the way I want to then let it take me the last bit...maybe not the right way but it works..I have lots of other questions so I will post them one day when I get time

You can select a via point and the Nuvi will guide you to your destination via that point. In that way you can direct the Nuvi to go a particular way. Just call up your destination in the usual way, then after it has calculated the route, call up another address/suburb/waypoint/intersection as your via point. It will then ask if you want to travel to your destination via this new point.

You can only put in one waypoint per route. I queried this with Garmin, but so far have had no reply.

Post turn off highways

As you suggested, drive as far as you can via the alternative route and let garmin help you from there. that's easier.

What I also do on mine now is to turn off highways, so that it will not direct me to the highway by default. now I learn new byways and passages I didn't knew existed, even around my area.

can't wait till they ditch the whereis maps. its hopeless.
