Ride Planner Sucks

I hate using this as it is, but now, it won't even allow me to get my maps to do a much needed pre-ride. As it doesn't recognize my being signed in from previous pages, when I click on "Sign In", nothing happens. I can see the ride on my phone's Ride Planner app, but can't get that to the stupid in-dash GPS.

Sorry, just need to rant.

I'm all about technology and stuff but when it fails its very frustrating that's why I keep a good atlas in the saddlebag.

Problem solved. Reboot didn't work, but logging out of everything Harley and logging back in did work. No to work on other issues like the route being broken up into 8 routes when loaded onto the bike. Did I mention how much I miss my Garmin and hate the Harley nav?

Ride planner is a love/hate relationship. Mostly hate. I like planing routes and including dealerships or gas stations as way points but a complicated trip is almost unmanageable. There are so many individual files that it's hard to remember which one you are on and which is next. I've lost many routes in ride planner after being mysteriously logged out and then unable to save the trip. I keep thinking if I keep using it, it will get better but you know what they say about trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results...

I use the app inRoute on my iPhone and iPad. You can't download into bike but can save routes and has a motorcycle setting to fine the curvy route. Been using it to plan our trip to Nashville this summer. I just plan on entering some key points in my places on the bike so I can access them on the trip.

I tried Ride Planner and uploading the bike without much luck in my last bike and gave up.

On the trip I did I named them for the date &/or destination, seemed to help.

The OP problem is what got me the other day, frustrating.

Open up your route in the H-D Ride Planner, then select Customize from the info box. When the new box pops-up on the left side of the screen it defaults to displaying the Locations. Select Directions and at the bottom right corner of the box, you will see the ability to download (Download GPX). Screenshots attached to show examples.

Simple and logical placement, right?

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.

I found that's the best way to name the GPX files; last September I rode from Houston to Vancouver ,then flew to Germany and rode through Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria. My files were named day 1 , rest stop 1 etc...

Only problem I encountered was when the Garmin committed suicide by leaving the bike at 85 MPH on a Germany Autobahn. Otherwise I find ride planner is far easier to use than Garmins.
