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.

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.

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.
