Hi,

This is not really a question, but, I wonder why there are so many options on the Tomtom Adventurer except a speed skating mode. Now I use the running mode to track my speed skating training, but wouldn't it be great if there is a mode for (speed)skating itself (also because I think that there are two different modes for skiing and snowboarding but the tracking of these activities is practically the same...) .

    It all comes down to demand for the function and since you are the first person on the forums to ask for it, i imagine demand is low. It does not appear they are adding any more sports modes, that is what they added Freestyle and gym modes for. Freestyle is for any GPS enabled non-core activities and Gym for non-GPS enabled activities. If they start adding sports modes then you may want equestrian sports and I may want football and someone else may want paddle sports, this is why then went with the generic Freestyle. The existing sports also tie into the lifetime totals on MySports. If they add more sports modes they would also need to redesign all of MySports to capture them.

    In any case, TT has announced they are leaving the wearables market and not producing any new devices, so I would expect at this point any updates will be limited to bug fixes. I would not expect much more development and certainly not something major like new sports modes.

    I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.
