how to get detailed map if any?
« on: November 06, 2012, 11:20:24 pm »

hi,

is there a way to download for device upload local map for proper navigation?
I can't figure out how to use navigation mode.
the device shows some roads, but without names how can I understand anything?
Also GPS shows your position with "error" that points to outside of road and when 2 roads close to each other and GPS shows you in between which one is the one?

So far I used pre defined WayPoints to create route in device, but this
1. isn't easy - you have to remember which WayPoint to select after which one due to software can't create the route
2. navigation page shows direct way to the WayPoint instead of follow road as proper navigation GPS does, this is confusing when you don't have straight road,  and who likes to ride straight roads especially in mountain areas

how to use navigation page / mode effectively?

thanks.

Hello Mike,

Just a couple of questions:

What do you mean by 'upload local map for proper navigation'? Are you referring to uploading a route to your device?
If not, can you please further explain?

To use the Navigation function of the device, it has the ability to see the Map and Compass, create a route and follow it, save waypoints and find them, and start at the beginning of the track.

As for this statement below:
Also GPS shows your position with "error" that points to outside of road and when 2 roads close to each other and GPS shows you in between which one is the one?
I'm not sure what you mean by this. What kind of error are you getting? Can you please provide some screenshots about this error?

Yes, the Create a Route function is not available with the Training Gym Pro. However, this suggestion has been forwarded to our engineers.

To find a Waypoint, you can go to Main Menu > Navigation > Find Waypoint. Apparently, what it does is that it leads you basically straight to the waypoint.
If you prefer detailed map (with names, labels, diagrams, etc.), then, that would require a firmware modification. Would this be your suggestion for this product? Please advise.

Hi Mikek,

maps canīt be loaded to the device. It is not a navi which works like a navi in the car.

If you want to use the device for navigation it is possible to upload a gpx-file as activity and follow the route by selecting these activity in the activity-menue for Track-Back forward or backward. The device is calculating a number of points along these route and navigates you from point to point.
The route and your position is shown on the display. Also the direction and the distance to the next point along the track you have to steer to is shown.

Hope thes information helps you.

Best regards
