How this happened. I sent a route from Basecamp (pc) to the zumo. When I import it into trips it says trip cannot be saved. But still shows an added trip each time I re-imported it. How do I get rid of these "ghost" trips. I didn't see them in Basecamp or in the Zumo computer files.
I was working with a gpx file from roadrunner magazine and modified the route to start and end at my home instead of the hotel they stayed at. I did figure out that I just had to redo the whole route because their gpx file wasn't playing well. So that part is figured out.
I can use both mac and pc. Hope this all makes sense.
On most devices you can in fact delete all the .gpx files you find there with no effect.

So I posed the question to Garmin support ... they replied with two options ... of which for myself the first cleared out the ghost trip. However you will loose all user data, like POIs, routes, tracks, paired devices and settings. Here is what Garmin said:
Thanks for contacting Garmin. Let's see if a master reset will resolve this problem.
To perform a master reset:
- Start with the device turned off and unplugged from power. To verify the device is powered off and not in standby mode, press and hold down the power button until prompted to turn off the device
Power on the device
When the first copyright screen appears press and hold the lower right-hand corner of the display portion of the touchscreen
Remove your finger from the touchscreen when "Erase all user data?" appears
If text language is not in English, this is the button on the right
Another option to perform a master reset for these devices:
- Touch View Map
Touch the Speed icon
Touch and hold the speedometer for approximately 5 seconds
Release your touch when the Diagnostics Page displays
Touch Clear all user data
Touch Yes when prompted to "Erase all user data?"
The device will now be reset. Follow the on-screen prompts, then place the device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.
