Impossible to load a track

gian161090gian161090 Posts: 1 [Novice Seeker]
Hello users; I have a Tomtom 500 and I received from some friends a GPX with some offroad Tracks;
I tried to load the GPX with Mydrive->Fail message ( No track available )
I tried to load the GPX with Tyrepro->Fail message ( No track available )
I tried to load the GPX with Myroute app (usb ) ->Fail message ( No track available )

Seems that the TOMTOM try to recalculate the GPX to create its best track ; of course off road are not in the maps so it gives an error message

Any suggestion ?

    Hi
    @gian161090

    Tomtom devices are ROAD .ITN Route/GPS Track planning devices and not suitable for Off-road route planning
    If the route/road/track or coordinate is not displayed on the Tomtom map the device will only plan a route to the nearest road access point

    For Example... inputting coordinates using GPS format, for example, If you enter N 52 23.488 W 2 12.501 it's a field in Worcestershire UK
    In the text, the New GO range will display the coordinate location and underneath, offer the nearest road location as a destination, in this case, an (Unnamed location) Hurcott UK

    (1)... Tapping the Black Pendant Icon
    opens the "(Unnamed location) Hurcott UK" Tap the blue "Drive Steering Wheel" icon to drive there
    Or
    Tap the 3Dot Quick menu for more options...
    (2)... Tapping the Globe coordinate Icon only zooms the map into the Globe Icon (Tapping the Globe Icon on the Map does nothing)... Pinch zoom the map down until the Black Pendant Icon is in view... Go to bullet point (1)...

    If you Tap the dual function Icon (3Lines & 2Circles

    You can toggle between a Map and List view or tap the Keyboard Icon to return to the Coordinates menu screen

    If you pinch-zoom the map screen, it will show the coordinate location on the Map

    The GO will give you the coordinate location and will show it on the map, but can only plan a route to the nearest road access point
