I've just bought the French IGN Rando Alpes du Nord Cd-Rom, naively imagining that it would be similar to Memory-Map or Fugawi. Apart from me not knowing much French, this seems to be about as user-unfriendly as you can get. The map itself seems to be a slightly blurry scan of the standard 1:25000 maps, but the route-making facility is a law unto itself. I've just tried uploading a route, only to find that the "waypoint" names don't seem to be able to be adjusted. They're all R00-01, R00-02 etc which means I'll have to either manually adjust them in the GPS or possibly download them into Gartrip or something and make the changes there and then upload them again. I can't see how to link the named waypoints that I've made into a route, which doesn't seem right to me. Adjustments to the route are virtually impossible, despite what the help file seems to say. I could go on and on, but this really makes me appreciate just how simple and intuitive Memory-Map is in comparison. Has anybody else used Rando and have they got any tips?
