Recording Routes EGDE 500

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I have an Garmin Edge 500 and I was curious if it is possible to record route that I have rode, for example if I did a circuit at Forsyth Mills can the Edge record this route and then could I use the “Course” function to use this information for navigation?

Am help on this would be great. I understand you can plot routes on various web-based packages and then export them as TCX file which can be loaded on to the device. I find this a struggle with trails though as they are typically obscured by trees or it is near impossible to resolve the track.

Yeah - IIRC you go to the courses menu on the Edge and go to 'create new' after which it presents you with a list of rides you've done that you want to change into a course.

The course creator on Garmin Connect is also pretty nice.

Page 13 of the manual. Dead easy.
