    I've been planning a trip up to Timmins using Backroads Mapbook GPS software. I created a route using a hydro service road north of Capreol. One of the members had posted that there is also another route, a logging road "Portelance" which becomes "Wanapitel River Rd" further up.

    The GPS software from Backroads Mapbooks does note display this road, yet their book for Northeastern Ontario does. So essentially if I decided to use this road I would have to use the map as I can't create a route since it is not shown on their GPS software.

    I'm not impressed and have sent a couple of emails to Backroads Mapbook for software upgrades. I only purchased the software last November. :x

    One possible workaround is to create a track from the route (in BaseCamp) and navigate the track... this gets around issues with route recalculation as well.
