Thanks for the heads up. I probably can but I have always used Post It notes since I taught motorway lessons. Just that now I binned the string and use the google distance indicator.Dude i dont know if you can do it where you are but in UK we can download that kind of streetview onto the XT
Garmin has been good to me over the years. When I started getting into GPS navigation seriously Base Camp was introduced and that was the game changer. The interface and options for traveling are nothing short of amazing albeit time consuming.They all suck.
The zumo i had 10 years ago sucked and my brand new xt sucks for the same reasons:
However: Everything else sucks worse. So its still the best choice.
That is my issue. The garmin sucks to interface with. You need to spend an hour with a different app to do what i can do in google maps in 2 minutes.Garmin has been good to me over the years.

For enduros and dual sport events we always used roll charts. Those are becoming less and less and everything is going GPS. As much as I like it I still keep a paper map and use landmarks and points of reference for navigating.
Heck I'm still using my old 76CSX on my Beta.
I know it's not what you want to hear but there is a workaround for that. Simply punch in the google earth coordinates into the GPS to find a point of interest that cannot be otherwise found. GPS is not a perfect technology by no means.Just last night: Garmin cannot find my hotel by name. Cannot find it by address. Cannot find it. I am about to lose my shit when finally the garmin drive app is able to find it and i was able to send to my xt.
Something like that yeah.Steaming off into the sunset???
