This may help a few SD users owning a Garmin296.
Yes indeed, the routes can be transferred to a 296 unit !
The configuration I use is :
- SD (PC Version 188.8.131.52)
- Garmin 296 (Rev 6.10) In the Menu bar "Setup" select COM1 and set as [Serial Data Format = Garmin Data Transfer] and [Transfer Mode = Host]
Open SD, open/create the route you want to xfer to the 296.
Select the SD Menu bar "Setup" and check the setting as follows:
Then, click on SD Menu bar "Go Flying" and click on "Send Route to Connected Device"
You should get a Dialog box somehow similar to this :
Finally, click on "Export" and you're done.
Last but not least, should your route be divided into several legs, keep in mind that the only one which is highlighted will actually be transferred.
In other words, you will need to xfer one file per leg.
I hope this helps/clarifies.
