Preventing Auto-Rerouting on Oregon 450?

I use Basecamp in conjunction with my Oregon. Recently I had a route I created in Basecamp that I sent to the GPS. I was following it...and missed a turn (according to the GPS). Turns out the maps weren't quite accurate, so the turn wasn't where the GPS thought. No big deal really...it was pretty close. However...since I missed the turn it said existed (passed it), and it didn't know the actual location a half mile or so ahead...it auto-rerouted me. Normally this would be a good thing...except there wasn't another forest service road for about another 30 flippin' miles. Of course...the magic pink line on the GPS says I'm still on the "right" route. About 20 miles later...I get thinking we should be pulling into town...keep on truckin, trusting the GPS (yeah, dumb!). Finally pulled out a map and pulled coordinates from the GPS to figure out that I was in BFE. Long reroute with some fuel tanks gettin' pretty dry, and some unhappy riders.

How do I keep the GPS from recalculating a route if I miss a turn? Maybe I should just convert it to a track and be done with it? How do you guys deal with this.

On my 62s, I can set the autorouting to 'Prompted', Automatic' or 'Off in the 'Routing' menu.

After you've created your route in BC, you can create a track from it. Load both into the gps, select the track and enable it to 'Show On Map'. Then select your route, the route should over lay the track. Where ever both don't overlay, follow the track.

It is problems like these with routing that convinced me to navigate with tracks. I create the route on a computer and then convert it to a track. In BaseCamp you can create the track directly. In Mapsource I use a free 3rd party software package called WinDGB3.

I then send the track to the unit for navigation.

Good input, I'll see if I can turn it off on mine.
