You can create your own route.

To program your own route and use it over and over again i would do this.
1. press my route
2. press create a route
3. press more
4. press record
It will record exactly the way you are driving and the route you want. and then you can use it over and over again.
Use your Gps manual or you can click here to download it.

Plan a route


For Garmin. Enter your final destination and select go. Select again "where to" and select new destination on route. Option of "New destination or add as via point" will be shown. Select as add as via point. Repeat as many time you want. Works only when "go" was selected - can not be pre programmed and saved for later use.

How do I change a route on my garmin rv760 from the route the gps picks


There should be a built in trip planner app to set up your trip. If it is a long trip and you don't like the route just add a stop for gas or food along the route you want to take. If it is a short trip then get over the fact it is recommending something different, mute, it and drive how you want to go. It is a computer and does not know what you may know. As an alternative, add a via point by telling it a new destination while it already has one. For via points remember to work backwards. Final destination, then next to last and so on.

I don't want to go the route the thing picks. I want to go via a different town. How do i make it do it?


When you input the destination let it pick the route. Then, without cancelling the route it selects, again press WHERE TO and put in the town you want to go via. When you press GO it will ask you is this a "new destination" or a "via destination". Select "Via" and it will guide you through that town.

Hello everyone. I bought garmin nuvi 750 GPS six months ago. I use it travelling all over and it works pretty good. But I dont know how could i find alternate route for same destination. For eg. I want to...


What you're looking for is called "Via Points" as your friend correctly suggested. From the Garmin Nuvi 750 web based information:

nüvi 750 includes advanced navigational features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 750's wide screen. In addition, nüvi 750 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls.

"Alternate routes" are those routes that are created when the nuvi is used with a traffic receiver (FM or MSDN). This allows for a new route to be created with the traffic data so that routes suffering congestion, etc. are avoided. Some people also refer to the routes created when a turn is missed (the GPS indicates "Recalculating") as an "alternate route" but it is not.

Good luck!

Can you program the gps to never take a certain highway


unfortunately you cannot tell it where not to go. You can sometimes use the "detour" button and sometimes it will make a completely new route. Every time you ask it to route to a certain location, it makes a new route every time depending on your current location when you enter the destination.

I want my Garmin to take me on a different route to my destination than the one that has been selected by Garmin. Does anyone know if I can change it to the route I want? Thanks!


On most Garmins there's a button marked "detour". On the touch screen versions it's an on-screen button rather than a physical button.

it may be trying to get you back on track or if when turning it on it trys to take you a previously sort location you may have set this as your home. make sure your actual home address is stored as your home address on the gps unit.

Downloading Pre-planned Routes


No. The unit is not set up to operate in that fashion. It will calculate the best way based on it's internal software to get to your destination from where you currently are according to GPS satellites in orbit, but you cannot tell it you want to go a certain way from point A to point B and have it follow that.
