Is it possible to load a map I have created using ITN Converter (with multiple waypoints) on to my device?

If so, what format should I save the file as and where in the file structure of the device itself should I store the file so that the device can read it.

I do not want to use the desktop software provided with the device it is too clunky and the ITN converter is much easier.

p.s. I can do this on my Garmin no problems but I need to be able to do this on my MIO as well.

Thank you for any assistance.

Did you mean a "route" or "itinerary", rather than a "map"?

Sorry for my confusing terminology.

Yes I have created a route that needs to follow exact waypoints, there are over 100 in the first one I have done. I need to get that route on my device..

I'm not familiar with the MIO models, but I just had a look through the on-line manual, and although it describes (on page 39) how to set up a multi-stop route on the device itself, it doesn't mention any way to load or save the routes externally.

I just had one sneaky thought....
I wonder if you could create a test route that way, give it a recognisable name, and then search the storage memory using your PC to see if you can find a file with that name. That would be a big clue as to how it stores these itineraries and if it does it as separate files then what the file format is.

Unfortunately I've tried that to no avail, I cannot find a separate file with my file name. My thoughts are that there is just one file that stores all routes within it as it is the only one I can see that matches modified date/time and that is a file called database.db....

You can create a multi-stop trip on the device itself using the Trip Planner icon

You can then choose to leave as entered, move stops around, or optimise

What you cannot do is save multiple routes for future reference (although you can plan before hand, switch to standby and it will be ready to use when you get in the car

Maybe not what you want, but the only way multi-stop routes are possible the the Mio 695

Thank you for your prompt replies. Seems it's the wrong gear for what I want to do.

I gave you bad information above, sorry

Using Mio More Desktop or on the unit you can create multiple trips, each with multiple waypoints (either as entered or optimised by the unit) and save these
