Once again, Route vs. Track??
When a version 1.1 gpx file is created and saved/exported onto the Tomtom GPS, it contain the coordinates I created under the "Route" section and then under the "Track" section a whole lot more coordinates are set along the route I saw on the monitor while creating the route, not only the ones I have entered as way points.
Now, when choosing to ride the "Route" part the way points entered will be passed and the GPS settings will determine how the route between each way point will be decided, fastest, shortest and so on. Even traffic information will be part of that decision. Right?
Then when I choose the "Track" instead, the GPS will have a whole lot more way points to work with but here is my actual thought, will the route decision still be made by the GPS based on GPS settings? So if one guy have shortest entered into his GPS and his wife happen to have fastest entered into hers they might actually end up with different route choices? And the the traffic information provided might also interfere and I might end up with a different route than I anticipated?
As you might understand by now, I am trying to understand why my routes sometime contain choices not really made by me ... ;-) ...
... and a follow up question then, what if I use Google maps to create the route in for instance MyRoute-app and a specific road is available in Google Maps but not in the Tomtom map, how would the GPS deal with that?
Well, apart from the small squiks I am quite happy with my TTR, now upgraded to a 550 ...
Have a nice summer out there,
