Thank you to all of you for your help. I managed to get the courses onto the Garmin by saving them with a different name. Simple as that thank goodness - I start my LEJOG on Tuesday.

Can't Load Course on Garmin

I have 19 courses on my Touring Plus. When I try and add another I am unsuccessful. The procedure I used is the same as the procedure I used to put the 19 courses on.
