Imported a GPX file, the route gets renamed with "T-" ... why?

Can someone explain what is going on with the "T-" that I see in my imported routes/tracks?

I created a GPX file using Tyre.
I connected GPS via USB
I dragged the GPX file "Loop from A to B.gpx" onto the GPS
The route gets imported as "T-Loop from A to B.gpx"
Sometimes I also see 2 versions of the file:
"Loop from A to B.gpx"
"T-Loop from A to B.gpx"

What, why, how?

(PS - It seems like the "T-" version of the route is more faithful to my intended route that I created using the Tyre app.)

    The T version is the track a very precise representation of the path to follow. (When loaded on the Rider it will try to follow this path as close as possible over accessible roads on the map. Strange U-turns can be filtered out)

    The normal version in the route only the Via points you placed.
    The actual path will change based on route preferences like fastest route.

    Thanks RoadRider.
    Seems like a good thing to put in the documentation. I sure do wish they would create documentation and keep it up to date.
