navigating over small bicycle tracks using routes. To get rid of the
labels you could convert the routes to tracks and navigate them using
If you want to navigate with routes, you can re-convert the tracks to
routes. The via-point names are then only 3 digit numbers. Such short
labels are a lot less annoying on the display.
For the conversion, the most comfortable programm is wingdb, which is
available under the files section of the 60C group
or under http://www.softsolutions.be/GPS/Garmin/WinGDB11.zip
I also have the same critique as Octavian. Waypoint labels on a route
obstruct too much information on a chart. The screen is simply too
small to have these large labels on the screen. Has anyone figured
out a way to remove them since Octavian posed the question below?
