Route planning on your Garmin is a great tool – if you’re away from home, you can plan a route on nice quiet roads and be sure that you’re going to do the distance that you want to, without getting lost. If you’re at home, you may even be able to plan a route that incorporates some new roads. Si and Matt talk you through the process of creating, downloading, and following a route.
