Zumo, Route Pausing?

Okay...this is probably a stupid question but......

I just bought the new Garmin Zumo 220 and have been playing around with it. I'm leaving on Monday for a ride from Indianapolis, IN to Tampa, FL. My question is when I plan a route, for example my first leg is from Indianapolis to Murfreesboro TN. When I stop to eat or whatever how do you pause the unit so that when you're ready to start again it picks up where it left off. If I hit the stop button when I stop and clears the route.
Am I missing something or am I just an idiot?

Thanks,

I have no experience with the 200, but on my 550 you don't need to do a darn thing. If you power it off with will come right back to where it left off. Good luck.

If your Zumo 200 works anything like my Zumo 550, just turn the unit off. When you restart the unit, it should remember that you were following the route you programmed, and it of course knows where you are currently are located. My Zumo 550 offers a "Stop" button to end the route, which I only use if I want to cancel the route (which you do not want to do). Other inmates who have a Zumo 200 should be able to confirm this for you.

My Bad, Zumo 220

Sorry, my bad. It's the Zumo 220. Not a 200.
Thanks,

even if you stop the route, when you reload it and it asks you to navigate to the start of the route say no and it will put up the same route with your present location. if your still on the route it should just pick up where you left off. If your off the purple line and it asks recalculate? not a good Idea. just ride back to the route line and go. should never have it set to auto recalc. usually screws you up.

OK... why would you want to "pause the unit" when you stop to eat?

On the old tech units such as my 276C if you are navigating a route and you turn it off and then back on sometime later it just keeps on keeping on and picks the route back up (assuming you haven't moved a few thousand miles in between off and on).

Because its likely his first GPS, I had a similar concern with mine (my first GPS nuvi 550 bought a few weeks ago).
What I did was use it for my normal day to day stuff in the car to get used to all the features etc, before I set it up for the big trip, to save any problems on the road.
And yes it will just pick up where you left off.

Yes, it's my first GPS unit.
I guess instead of using the word pause I should have just said when I stop before I reach the end of the route. There was nothing that I found in the manual that said when you stop and turn the unit off it will start up where you left off.

Thanks,

That is the problem with all the manuals. They only give you some of the basics and they fail to explain any of the nuts and bolts. Drives me nuts. So, you just have to do it the old fashioned way and play with it as much as you can.

It picks up where you left off because it knows where you are and places you on the mapped route. so if your still physically on the route, that's where you are on the map.

I just take the Zumo off the mount.....leave it on Zumo battery power and take it to lunch. THat way if any route questions come up you can reslove them during the meal.

THen just put the ZUmo back on and you are ready to go.
