Hello, the itineraries appear in my TomTom Ryder double in two denomination, as Track and Route. Which is the difference?
Thank you, Luciano

    Thank you RoadRider, very helpful.
    In fact I tried both versions on preview in the Rider and the "Route" version did alter a bit the itinerary.

    Some extra info;

    In MyRoutes a Track has dots in the line trackiconarrow.png (imported as .GPX or Send as track in MyDrive)

    And a Route a real line routeiconarrow.png (imported as .ITN or Send Stops)

    Thank you DougLap, that is how I plan my itineraries, to follow exactly a prefixed route. Luciano

    Useless as Track doesn't show time or distance to next stop.

    A track does show you the time to the only stop your Finnish.
    (Tracks don’t support stops)

    To add stops use multiple tracks.
    Track 1 - Start to Lunch
    Track 2 - Lunch to Coffee
    Track 3 - Coffee to Beer and BBQ

    Tracks are better when you want to follow the planed path as close as possible.

    Routes are better when you don’t care about te exact path for example when you like to drive the fastest route during congestion. Also when you have manny stops is better to use routes.

    Both have there purpose.
