Just tried creating the route in google maps, and copying the text to excel to edit. After 40km, when the route changes from one highway to another, the odometer starts back at 0km. So that’s not so useful (My multisport watch does show distance etc, just no option for navigation.). I maybe created that issue by how I mapped the course. If there’s a way to copy the Garmin Connect Course across, then that should fix that. Just that google seems to be all about the destinations and dragging the route, so a little different to how I map with really small steps in Garmin.
I see no option for directions in Garmin. I’ve used a free mapping software to create GPX files back when I had an Edge 705, one DCRainMaker linked to I think. OpenStreetMap maybe?
What I was hopeful of by posting here, was someone saying something like ‘‘Garmin connect’’ or similar lets you print out notes, or some other site that I’d not found the feature on. I don’t mind spending a little time on this, but would prefer not to spend hours making the sheets (and I want them so we can just get on and do the rides without stopping to check directions all the time).
I’ll try to get something GoogleMaps + GoogleDocs based done tonight, but it’s sounding pretty manual right now.
