  • Creating a new route does not create a route

    Whenever I try to create a new route in any fashion(any activity), all base camp does is draw a pink straight line from point A to point B. I've also had an issue when creating a route, where the path it automatically creates links back to the nearest highway from my two selected points. Doesn't matter if I'm creating a direct route a couple of feet apart or a route hundreds of miles apart. I cannot click multiple points and have them create a path as the Garmin videos so easily show. I also cannot edit the route. The auto-map/auto-route function of creating a new route is not working for me. Any tips?

    It's because you don't have the appropriate routeable map or you have direct activity selected.

      What activity type and map are you using? Are you using the Edit~Create Route option? I don't understand the description of your second issue.
