Hi everyone,

I have a Magellan 1200 Road Mate that works great on roads.

My question is, does anyone know if I can enter a starting point on a bird hunt, and enter waypoints along the way that will work even though there are no roads in the area?

I plan to try it on my next gamelands trip, but I thought someone may have some advice.

Thank you in advance for any help.

it will work until you try to get it to guide you to another waypoint or POI. it will try to use roads, not direction.

Sounds like your settings are set to lock on road. You will have to play with it and see if there is a setting called "OFF ROAD". It would help if you let us know what GPS you have.
