GPSr Units / Re: Basecamp not loading latest Waypoint file to Garmin
« on: July 02, 2019, 08:15:43 AM »
Newbie figured it out for himself, had to move them to the upper window first.

No the Nuvi actually keeps them in alphabetical order but if you are looking for a saved location while you are moving, it will keep refreshing the list from the top as it continuously updates the travel distance. I usually end up just pulling over.

So I posted my Basecamp waypoint question on another forum and No replies, and am waiting to see if I will be accepted on the Garmin forum, but may get a better answer here since it is a BaseCamp issue. so here goes:
 The uploaded Waypoint or Favorites list from my GPS shows up in the bottom left corner titled My Collection in BaseCamp. After I edit this list I want it sent back to the Garmin Drive 51 GPS but it either isn't sending anything, or it is sending back the same list without any of the changes I've made. I find no specific command available to send just the Waypoints up to the GPS. Three times and the same results. What is the Newbie missing?

Thanks Boyd, not very good customer support from Garmin then. So my Favorites will be arranged in a different order every time I access them depending on where I am parked. That is nuts.

YES You are correct! I completely 'Newbied" your instructions and missed the volume page step. Got it now! Thanks. Kinda weird that my favorites are listed in 'closest to current location' order, instead of in alphabetically order. Kinda weird... How can I change this?

OK, well I just updated my Drive 51 firmware from 4.0 to 6.1 to see if the Diagnostic Page looked differently and it does not. It is still just a spec & stats page with No menu choices other than raising or lowering the brightness and Exit, with Next & Back buttons still grayed out. This is the screen I get from pressing the upper right corner from the 'Where to?" screen, that function doesn't work from any other screen. I also have a Basecamp/Waypoint problem, should I take it to another forum? Thanks again Expert.

Well Bless you Boyd! That was simple, and I will try it again after I re-edit the file contents and delete some unneeded waypoints because even tho it said it did it and saved it yesterday, it lied. Nothing was changed. Also once the developer page opened up it turned out to be just an Info page with all the GPS stats and specs. The next & back buttons are grey and do nothing so not sure where MTP settings might be. I bet somebody knows...  Awesome website guys!   :)

Well I figured out how to upload, edit, and delete them from my NUVI using MapSource, but the same program will not 'see' the Drive 51 GPS. Seriously? Basecamp will see the 51 but i see no way to upload waypoints to it, or import a waypoint file into it to upload. I guess the waypoint info  would be included in the device upload once i get them imported?

I have an old Nuvi 200 full of Favorite locations that I want to upload to my Dell, edit or delete uneeded ones, and transfer to my newer Garmin drive 51. I've been reading Forum notes for 2 days and can't find the full story. It has been 10 years maybe since I've been here so back to a full NEWBY status for me!
