If you own the RM OverDryve 7 RV device...you can create an ImportTrip folder in the .Navi>RM folder, then Use Send To GPS in RVTW to create the .CSV file. The file will be in the Downloads folder, rename the file to something that makes sense, move the file into the ImportTrip folder and it will be picked up when you go into Search > Guided Search > Multi-Stop Trips. It adds in all the stops, the GPS device calculates route. NOTE - if you have any data in the comments blocks in RVTW the import of the trip blows up. RVTW needs to remove comments from the Send to GPS .CSV file they create.

All the above can be done on the GPS device using Chrome for the RVTW parts and ES File Explorer (or similar app) for renaming the .CSV file and moving it from downloads to the ImportTrip folder you created.

RVND7 import - After reading the posts above this is how I made it work.
Save your trip as a CSV file
Go to your File Explorer (computer) and find your CSV file, right click, and copy file.
Then from File Explorer go to your USB driver (where your Rand McNally is connected).
Click on USB drive, you should see RM folder and open, we created the ImportTrip folder (see other post), highlight this fold, right click and paste your CSV file.
If you double click on that file you will see your CSV file in the ImportTrip folder.
Now go back and highlight the USB drive and right click, click eject. Get message safe to disconnect.
Then your Rand McNally GPS will restart. You will see custome POI ready for import. Say yes or follow instructions for importing.
My trip shows up under MultiTrip.
I have 58 stops on my trip from NC to westcoast and back. It did pick up "way point" I had added to one stop.
If any of you stops are missing check your CSV file for errors. I had one stops that had an ' in the name and a /. Once I took out those characters, saved the file and went thru the steps above again, all stops imported just fine.
Hope this helps.

See post #23 for a step by step description of how to do this. The method described works perfectly with the Rand McNally systems.

I got it to work with Rand McNally. Download the cvs of the route from the program. Open the cvs in excell. Then save and rename the file. With your Rand McNally gps connected to the dock. Do a windows e press both keys at the same time. Go to your gps in my case it was in drive e. Click on the RM folder, then click on ImportTrip folder, the paste the cvs file that you saved from excel here. It is a good idea to name the cvs file something like the trip name. For example I named mine gpsdownload and that is what shows up as the name of the trip in the gps multi-trip section.
