How long does it take to convert route with Zumo XT... Transfer via Drive or Explore?!?

Hi there,

I just got my new Zumo XT and I am trying to get a route (67 waypoints) wireless into the device. Since it’s the XT I tried using Garmin Explore before BaseCamp on my macbook. Getting the route transferred to Explore is the easy part. Limit is 200 waypoints and I exported it from kurviger with no extra waypoints… It also get’s synchronised very quick with the Zumo…

But once I open it there is always an error message that “the route will be calculated to work on Zumo…” - something like this or likewise… And this takes like forever… I am waiting almost one hour and it didn’t look like it will work at all…

Alternatively I tried afterwards to transfer the route via Drive App directly… So I just transferred the gpx from Kurviger via AirDrop to my Iphone. This works smooth. I can directly open it with Garmin Drive and it get’s transferred to the Zumo in no time… I just get the message of max 29 waypoints followed by the options to split the route into 3 parts - which I confirmed… Like this it seems to work… Unfortunately I am loosing the exact kurviger route - but I think by adding more extra points and splitting It into even more parts this could be done better…

So - the question ist - why doesn’t explore work? It’s probably easier to just skip the whole Garmin Explore part… I don’t like BaseCamp and like this using Kurviger in the web-browser is the most convenient way for me…
