    Announced waypoints - Tyre - change to shaping points - NAV 5

    Been for a ride today and I have a route in my nav5. This is the first time I followed a planned route which I downloaded from my PC. It keeps showing a message (Approaching) for a few seconds. This must be a waypoint or shaping or via point how do I stop this from happening

    In basecamp, if you left click a waypoint you can de-select the “alert on arrival” option. That’ll do it.

    I understand this is also the way you change a “waypoint”into a “shaping point”

    Tyre creates announced points on my Nav V, it’s doin’ me gourd in

    how do I stop this from happening
    There are several ways. Here are some:

    Turn the sound off

    Make the waypoints, unannounced shaping points. You can do that within the Nav V itself

    Use BaseCamp or Mapsource, instead of some other shonky non-Garmin software

    Ask in the Tyre forum or of Tyre themselves, they make the stuff. See sticky no.2

    Home screen

    Apps

    Trip planner

    Tap on route

    You should see a screen that shows from the left, three horizontal bars in the top left corner, a list of the points of the route, starting with your start point with a green flag and a series of orange flags. On the right the route’s name, its distance and travel time, map and go buttons.

    On this screen, beneath the green flag start point, there’s the series of points with orange flags. These are the announced waypoints

    Tap on the three horizontal lines

    Tap on Edit Destinations

    Tap on all of the orange flags or as many of them as you want to change

    The orange flag(s) should change to a blue dot

    When prompted that the duration and arrival times will be removed, change to shaping point? Tap yes

    Tap Save

    You may well see the device recalculate

    Tap the back button

    You are now back on the screen with the three horizontal bars in the top left

    Check total distance, travel time and tap on map. Does the route on the map show a green flag, blue dots for the shaping points and a cheques flag at the end? Does it all look right? Yes....

    Tap on back button

    Tap on Go!

    Job done.

    PS You can change all or any of blue dots back to announced point orange flags using the same method

    wapping again thanks for reply.
    Have tried your suggestion . In the list it starts with green flag then blue dots and a checked flag at destination. However when I view route on map it has created lots of orange flags. I am at home and running it in simulation and it still says approaching

    When you say you are viewing the route at home, are you saying that:

    1. You have changed all all the intermediate orange flags to blue dots within the device (as above) and saved it to the device

    2. That when you view the amended route on the device’s map it has a green flag (start) chequered flag (end) and blue dots in betweeen, replacing the orange flags

    3. When you view it at home, I guess on a PC, the points in between are flags?

    What software are you using to view the route on your computer?

    Are you sure you are looking at the amended route on your computer and not the old version?

    have been able to clear all the orange flags in the map view of route by changing the vehicle to a car then it recalculated. Running it in simulation all looks good

    The problem would seem, as is so common, that you are using two different pieces of software to perform one function. Tyre, a third party route planner and Garmin.

    If you can persuade yourself to limit to just one (either Garmin’s BaseCamp or Mapsource) you’ll be reducing the chances of bugs and errors creeping in.

    looks like I will have to master Garmin’s BaseCamp not a fan. I love the street / satellite view that comes with tyres
