Garmin Basecamp load trip on device

I exported a trip to my Garmin nuvi 770 RV. I found all the places under saved, but I am looking at how to load my whole trip that I planned. Anyone know?

RE: Basecamp Under the Edit Menu choose Create Route. Not Trip. A drop down window will appear asking for the start and end waypoints. If Basecamp creates a route to your liking, don't add other waypoints. If it does not create a trip to your liking add your route waypoints in the order they would appear. Recalculate your route until you get it the way you want it. The route will appear in the list folder, for your route. Next load route and waypoints to your device. The waypoints will appear under Saved and the route will appear under Apps > Trip Planner. For more information in Detail refer to: Creating Routes with BaseCamp

Are you saying you can't find the route on the GPS itself?

If that is the case, at the main screen, touch the "Apps" icon. On the next screen, touch the "Trip Planner" icon. If your route transferred correctly to the GPS, it will be listed there as a "Trip." "ByeTheWay" said the same thing in his post.

Note: It is not necessary to use the "Trip Planner" function in BaseCamp to have routes appear as trips on the GPS. Confusing, I know.

If you want to use the trips function then create your trip in Basecamp. While in the trip planner screen click on Device>Send to Device. Select the microSD card as the destination. If you don't have a microSD card in the unit I suggest you get one. Once the trip is loaded you will find it on the GPS under Apps>Trip Planner.

Another way in BaseCamp is look at the "tree" on the left side that list routes, etc. When your device is plugged in it will show up at the bottom with a folder labeled User Data. You can simply drag the route(s) to the User Data folder and drop them in. At least that's the way it will work with my 760.
