HI I have just purchased a Colorado 300, and I'm trying to transfer routes from memory map to the GPS only they won't talk to each other, If I update memory map which they suggest my maps no longer work because of OS copyright any ideas on how to send a route from one to the other I have map-source installed but don't know if its possible to send routes from one to the other,
thanks gillyboc.

I cannot see why the following from Garmin won't work with your version of Memory Map, are you connected to the PC using Mass Storage Mode though? if not I think thats most probably the cause of the issue. I was going to post a direct link to the Garmin help page but that doesn't work so I quoted their On Line Help:

Garmin Web Site wrote:
Some third party applications such as Memory Map are unable to communicate with the Oregon or Colorado directly as these devices are mass storage devices. In most mapping applications it is possible to create a route on the computer, save it as a GPX file then store this on the internal memory of the GPS. If you are using Memory Map the steps for this are:

Create a route using the Route tool
Click Overlay and a select Export Visible from the list
Select a location on your computer to save the file to
Name the file and select GPS exchange file (gpx) next to Save as type
The file will now be saved to your computer. Locate this file and copy it (right click then Copy)
To transfer a GPX file to the GPS device connect it to the computer and ensure the device goes into mass storage mode. Windows should prompt you to open a folder to view files (if it doesn't then go to the Start Menu/ My Computer and double click the Oregon / Colorado drive). From this Window

Open the Garmin folder
Open the GPX folder
Paste the file into this folder (right click then paste)
The route will then display in Routes when you next turn on your GPS device


Does that seem like what you have been trying to do, if so at which step does it fail? - Mike
