Navigator 5 Not "mapping"

So i made my first attempt at uploading a route to my NAVIGATOR V via Basecamp. I downloaded the .gdb files for the WABDR and have successfully loaded them to base camp. When i export the route to my NAV V it shows up in the saved section listed as it should be "WABDR". Here is the issue... When i select that route and hit GO it's as if my Garmin only recognizes the end point, it then creates its own route to the end (highway, etc.). It does not follow the premade route at all.

Im sure it is something simple i am overlooking, anyone have any experiance with this problem?

If the Route/Trip you are activating on the NAV5 only has a Start and End point then it is doing just what it was designed to do.

If you are using the same version of Maps in BaseCamp as you have on the NAV5, then make sure you recalculate the WBDR route in BaseCamp before sending it to the NAV5. You can validate the recal by comparing it to the original Track.

Personally, I would add a bunch of shaping points to the route in order to make sure it wasn't going to be calculated incorrectly.

Or, just transfer the Tracks and navigate them on the NAV5 (convert to Trip).
