    Try this:



    When you have got the hang of how to do it, we can move on to have the device sort several destinations in one route, into the most logical order.

    Simon, I have dug out my XT. Give this a go to enter several post codes into one route.

    Home Screen

    Apps

    Trip Planner

    New Trip

    Select start location (ie where you want the route to start from)

    Add location. Scroll down and tap on address. Tap on post code. Enter post code. Enter house number but only if you have it.

    Press done.

    This will bring up search results. Tap on the result.

    Let the device do a quick calculation.

    Tap on Select

    Tap on Add location and repeat with the next post code

    Repeat for the next and so on

    Scroll down and insert final destination.

    Click on Next

    The device will calculate the route

    The device will display the route

    Click Save

    Give the route a name ‘Simon’s day out getting lost’ for example

    Back arrow

    Saved trips

    There it is.


    Practice it a couple of times, just making up post codes, to see it work. You can’t break it.


    Report back, please.

    As and when you have mastered this relatively easy and reliable process, you’ll then be able to move on. For example, you’ll be able to easily learn how to enter several destinations (in any random order) into a route and have the device sort them into a logical sequence for you.

    More importantly perhaps, you can learn how to create favourites for places you visit regularly. Then you’ll be able to summon them up to insert them into a route, without you having to enter them manually each time.

    It really is a very clever but equally dumb device.
