Hello the Forum!

I'm running a 2018 FLTRU. When I bought it new I got all excited with the onboard GPS. Hopped on Harley Trip Planner and put together a route using waypoints. Lots and lots and lots of waypoints.

Not knowing too many waypoints would cause things to seize up, I loaded the trip into the infotainment system. Well over a year later, that trip is still in there. I can't load it to delete it because too many waypoints. The system chews on the trip for a while and then shuts down/resets.

I searched and read a bunch of threads on the forum and did what I think is a soft reset ("back to factory defaults" is what I chose). Trip is still in there.

Is there a reset I can do that will wipe that old trip out?
Or am I venturing into an area that I need to stay out of?
And I just need to stop nitpicking and live with it?

Any thoughts or suggestions you can send my way would be awesome.

I found this on a different forum (https://www.hdforums.com/forum/new-rushmore-models/1138798-reset-navigation.html). Don't know if it will do what you need, but worth a try? "If the system is locked up which it will do occasionally, then pulling the master fuse will reset the system. When you turn the bike off the Boombox system does lose all power for 3 or 4 minutes. So wait these few minutes or pulling the main fuse has the same effect. Once In three years my system started to do some really strange stuff, in this case I had to do system resett via the software. If you do a search on this forum, you will find detailed instructions on how to do this. Of course any dealer can do it for you. It is about a 10 minute job once you get the directions."

Once you get the reset done, be advised that the maximum number of waypoints in a single route file on the Boom! Box 6.5GT is 60, regardless of what the H-D manuals state.

Thanks for the help all!

I pulled the main fuse and let it sit for 30 minutes.
Didn't solve the issue.

As for the 60 waypoint max, I discovered that little gem of information after I loaded this trip and couldn't get it out. ;)

As my father says, "too soon old, too late smart". :p

If anyone has any ideas before I tote this mess to the dealer, let me know, please.
I'm certain H-D would be happy to fix this and charge me an hour's worth of shop time. LOL!

So thats 60 waypoints in one route. So if you were doing a long trip you could break your route up into multiple stages, each stage having up to 60 waypoints?

Will the 'Export' function remove it?

Have you tried going back to the Ride Planner and removing the waypoints (till 60 is met or one less); save to the same name and export to the usb. Then load the usb file with the same name to the bike that has the same name, might over write the offending file in the bike.

Being a geek, I wasn't sure if this would help. I do not know if the GPS memory is powered by the battery, or what we say, "non-volatile" memory. Sounds like the latter which in non-technical terms, "sucks big time". Sorry it didn't help...

Was just working on mine and found that saved trips cannot be deleted. But, there are trips I loaded before that are not in the lists. I'm guessing that X number of trips are saved and as more come into the bike, it will reach a point that it deletes old trips to make room for new. You could try loading a bunch of trips and see if the offending one goes away.

Correct. I use waypoints extensively to define the route I want, but break it down to 1-2 days at a time to stay below the 60 waypoint limit.

Available memory is somewhere around 700K, assuming you haven’t saved locations. Nothing to do with battery, only available memory in the Infotainment system. Only save the route, not the “save all” option, which includes locations.
