Re: Rookie GPS question
I'm sure the answer is yes for any GPS. It's a pretty basic function. But, maybe not.
On my trip back from Flagstaff, I intended to reverse the route I had followed on the way there, but there wasn't a reverse route option on the Zumo (that sucks). So instead I replotted the waypoints (the Zumo calls them "via" points) manually and rerouted it. You do this on the Zumo by tapping the screen where you want the waypoint.
The routing algorithm can be funny. I was trying to plot a route off the interstate through Oatman, AZ on Oatman Hwy, a very slow road. I had a waypoint on Oatman, and put one on the highway to it, but the routing would constantly take me down the Oatman Hwy, have me turn around, go back to the interstate, take a later exit, and get to Oatman on the better roads. To convince it I really wanted to go all the way through to Oatman on Oatman Hwy, I had to keep adding more waypoints along the stretch. Eventually, it got the idea.
So, it can be a pain, but it can be done.
