Hi,

Just connected to my TT sport online. I am thinking of creating a trail or race route but not able to find it. I can find where to upload a route but no sure where to create one be.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    There is no way to create a route in MySports. You can either follow a route you already did or upload a gpx file to follow. Your best bet is to make a route in another program like Strava or the many mapping services online, save it as a gpx and then upload it to MySports. I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    Could you suggest some of the website to begin with.

    Hi i-zero, I use this web page a lot. It gives you elevation data as well as all other needed for creating routes. I've done a few hikes with very little navigational problems due to tracks made here.

    Hi bbostjan,

    I remember I saw a video that create route by simple clicking on the map but I cant remember where and it is by TT's user. I thought it was one of TT's online web. Have you come across such website?

    Yeah, GPSies is one of those. You have to register and login, then use this link (I have it bookmarked for my use):

    Thanks. It's pretty useful to create the actual route of a race and focus more on the run instead of which way to go.
