    I considering buying a model 1535 but I hear that the maximum stops that can be programed on the same trip is three. Is that correct?

    I don't like Routes very much (haven't used the .itn on my GO 930 for years).
    If I feel I need a one off route, I put the stops in Favorites, preceded with a triple underscore and continuous number. Doesn't take much longer.

    That said, in use, I much prefer my GO Live 1535 to the modern NAV4 devices.

    thanks,



    Arno, Thanks for your reply. The reason I asked is I plan on heading to Arizona this fall and would like to program in several overnight spots, restaurants, etc

    On danger of sounding like a traitor, I plan my trips strictly with Google maps on the computer while having a few Firefox tabs open. I also pre-book overnight stops with confirmed reservations at places where I can cancel without fee before 6 PM check in time.
    Restaurants is a different kettle of fish. I pick those when I see them or follow recommendations from the hotel/motel.

    My drives to an overnight spot can vary widely, if I am not in a dead rush from what I had planned 2000 miles away. If I see something more interesting, usually mountains, I immediately change course. The constant redirection from the voice annoyed me. Pulling over and looking at a TomTom screen to see what kind of points I should use and then enter them while SWMBO tells me that I should have done my planning at home does not further the vacation spirit.
    The reason why I love my 9 year old GO 930 is that it has Bluetooth remote control and can be operated with a hand in the lap or on the arm rest with no one the wiser.

    Suggestion for using Favorites

    __1_1_description
    __1_2_ "
    __1_3_ "
    __2_1_ "
    __2_2_ "
    __2_3_ "
    __3_1_ "
    etc.
    That way they are at the top of the list and if you delete any after passing, the next one will always be at the top.

    I always create a POI file for a longer trip that includes both lodgings and interesting sounding restaurants along with the usual points to visit.

    Yes, of course, but this was addressing the question of wanting to have more than 3 waypoints.

    I also put in a POI file of Costco locations that have gas. I have a Costco VISA card that gets me a 4% rebate on Costco gas, so that can be a nice savings on a cross-country trip.
