Land categorises courses into two types:
- Activities: files in track format that were recorded live during outings, reflecting your actual sports activities.
- Routes: files in track or route format but that were not recorded during an outing, but rather that will provide a reference to guide you.
Thus,courses are grouped in the data tree depending on how they will be used.
In addition, the activities will show the icon for the sport that was selected in the GPS while you were doing the activity (hiking, mountain biking, etc.).
How are activities defined?
Land regards the track files that are recorded on one of your TwoNav devices as activities.
When you connect a GPS device to Land, you can select if the device is yours, at which point the recorded tracks will be classified as activities.
You can also specify to have a track that is being shown as a route be classified as an activity. Just right-click on the track to open its pop-up menu and select ‘Move to my activities’. At that point you can also decide if you want all of the tracks recorded on that same device to be classified as activities.
Alternate classification by format (tracks and routes)
If you prefer, you can also classify courses by their format. Just go to ‘Options > See > Data trees’ and uncheck ‘View as my activities and routes’. In this case, the courses will be classified as:
- Tracks: a succession of points that accurately represent the course taken. For example, files in TRK, IGC or PLT format will be classified as tracks, and so will GPX or KML/KMZ files containing track-type information inside.
- Routes: a succession of waypoints that normally do not recreate the course taken, but distant points crossed. For example, files in an RTE format will be classified as routes, as will GPX or KML/KMZ files containing route-type information inside
