Ok, I accept I just don't know how it's done. So how is that done? How do I
tell my Garmin to guide me along, say, the Limes trail through the
Netherlands? It's mapped in OSM as a series of sections, each relation
encompassing one days walking, and all the sections are in a parent route,
which in turn is part of the international Limes trail.
