Which Velo GPS is best for your activity?

Ever since we started down the road in this industry a few years ago, our challenge has always been to innovate, to adapt our products to the specific needs of each athlete.

In this article we describe the key features of each model in our future line of GPS devices for cycling, the Velo line, so you can decide which of them is best suited to your riding needs.

VELO ROAD: THE GPS DEVICE FOR ROAD CYCLISTS

If you love riding on roads and optimizing your everyday workouts, Velo Road is the device that will best meet your needs.

Pin Mode

Did you know that… TwoNav features several tools in the Pin mode?

Did you know that… TwoNav features several tools in the Pin mode?

 

This week, on a new instalment of “Did you know that”, we show you how to use TwoNav’s pin mode. Though it generally goes unnoticed, it has a lot of potential, as we’ll show you now.

 

What is TwoNav’s ‘Pin’ Mode?

 

Pin mode

Pin mode is a powerful tool that lets you use very useful information to analyze your surroundings. To activate the pin mode, click and hold on a point on the map.

 

The selected position will be marked on the map with a pin, and a window will open on top showing information on that point (TwoNav will shift from ‘Data’ mode to ‘Pin’ mode).

 

 

What information can I see in ‘Pin’ mode?

 

Main information

 

Depending on what you selected, TwoNav will show one of the following:

 

  • Bearing from your current position to the point selected.

Pin Mode

 

  • Name of the element selected (if you clicked on a waypoint, track, route, street, POI, etc.).

Pin Mode

Pin Mode

 

  • Coordinates of the point (if no element is selected).

Pin Mode

 

Secondary information

Pin Mode

 

The second line in ‘Pin’ mode will show the following by default:

 

  • Distance from your current position to the point selected.

 

  • Altitude of the point selected

 

To see more information, you can add more fields from ‘Main menu > Settings > Full settings > Map page > Pin mode’.

 

 

What can I do inside ‘Pin’ mode?

Pin Mode

 

If you click on the top window, you’ll be able to do several things:

 

  • Create an element on the selected point: Waypoint, track or route.

 

  • Edit the properties of the selected point:

 

  • For waypoints: Change the waypoint icon, move the waypoint to a new location, etc.

 

  • For routes: Change the icons of the waypoints that make up the route, edit the route layout, add more waypoints to the route, reverse the route direction, show a graph with altitudes on the route, and more.

 

  • For tracks: Edit the track layout, divide the track into laps, show a graph with altitudes on the track, play back a simulation of the track, etc.

 

  • For maps: See the map’s properties, show the map’s contour, arrange maps into several layers, etc.

 

  • Anchor your selected position: Replace your current position by marking another position on the map. Once set, the information shown in the distance fields will be based on the new, anchored position, not your actual position. Also, if you hit ‘Re-center’, TwoNav will re-center on the anchored reference point instead of your current position.

 

  • Navigate to the selected point: The navigation will start from the current position to the point selected (waypoint, track or route).

 

Pin Mode

Remember that once you mark a location on the map, you can change the position of the pin by clicking elsewhere on the map. The information shown in ‘Pin’ mode will be updated based on the location you mark.

 

To close the ‘Pin’ mode, press the ‘Back’ button on the top bar.

New gps Velo for cycling

Great features for cyclists in a compact device

Making sure you enjoy your outdoor activities with our GPS units is a top priority for us. That’s why for our upcoming range of products, we’ve thought about all the features that will let you focus on your activity so you can enjoy it to the maximum.

Here’s a preview of some of the features in our new range of GPS units specially designed for cycling.

LOAD MAPS AND CALCULATE YOUR ROUTE

You will be able to open all the maps you need at the same time on the screen. For example, you can open a topographic map and overlap it with a road map to round out the information and get a more precise view of your route.
Once the maps are loaded, you can also calculate the route to take or load a previously stored track.

SET UP ALARMS AND ANALYSE YOUR DATA ON THE SCREEN

Before you start training or go riding in the mountains, you will be able to set up Velo to display the information you want to analyse (like heart rate, distance, power, cadence, cumulative ascent, etc.). All these stats will be shown on simple and intuitive graphs.
You will also be able to set alarms to have Velo notify you if you go over any of your pre-set limits.

RETURN TO START POINT AND TRACKBACK FUNCTION

Return home safely and focus on enjoying your workout. With features like Trackback, you’ll be able to simply retrace your route or go back to the start point of your workout by taking the same route you did before.
But that’s not all. Velo includes other features, like returning to the start point by calculating the most direct route from your current location.

TARGETED WORKOUTS: TRACKATTACK

Set up the hardest and most competitive workout you can imagine with the TrackAttack feature. Velo gives you the option to load a previous track with its times so you can beat your own best times every day. That way you’ll know if you’re able to improve on your previous best times.

Thanks to all these features, Velo will be a complete sports GPS unit that is tailored and created for cyclists.

To learn more about the launch of Velo, stay tuned to new posts, where you will discover more specific features for cyclists.

The exclusive Velo design: from sketch to reality

Designing a new GPS unit involves a lot of hard work and effort. Combining innovation and design in a single device that can stand up to the demands of an elite athlete is a complex process but, like all great athletes, we never give up.

From the first sketches the Velo was created with cycling enthusiasts in mind. Step by step we perfected every single design element to achieve a unique device that has everything a cyclist needs.

MADE IN SPAIN

Sourcing tough, quality materials was essential to TwoNav’s future projects, so we opted for a 100% made in Spain product. Adapting to this new development structure was a huge challenge, but like any outdoor sports enthusiast, we knew that despite all the effort the result would be worth it.

METICULOUSLY DESIGNED DOWN TO THE LAST DETAIL

Velo is a cycling GPS device, so one of our main design goals was to make it manageable in size (60x105x20 mm) with aerodynamic styling and very lightweight (only 100 gr).
Its shell is made to withstand extreme conditions, whether in the rain, mud or dusty terrain, so you can test it without limits.

TwoNav Sketch Velo

ELEGANCE AND SPORTY FLAIR

We’ll admit we like to take things to the next level and we don’t just go with the flow. That’s why in addition to making a GPS unit that’s both tough and lightweight, we gave it an elegant design with a black base colour and minor accents in three colours to give it that flair that sports enthusiasts want.

Sketch TwoNav Velo

CUSTOMISED COLOURS

We thought of every detail when designing the Velo’s styling which is why it will be available in three different trim colours.
If you’re a serious athlete you can select a sporty red trim, whereas the more sophisticated and elegant among you will find the Velo with a black trim more to your taste. And if you’re after today’s modern look then we recommend the white trim.

In short, the Velo is a GPS device with a design intended exclusively for cyclists. No matter what you ride the Velo will adapt to whatever your needs.

roadbook

Did you know that… thanks to Land, you can create digital Roadbooks?

This week in “Did you know that…”, we show you how to create your own e-Roadbooks and add all kinds of information to them. Forget about paper!

WHAT’S A ROADBOOK?

For those who don’t know, a roadbook is a route guide with all kinds of information on the route: coordinates descriptions, diagrams and more. They are generally written on paper and describe waypoints along the route and maneuvers that make it easy to navigate.

 roadbook

This tool is normally used both by rally drivers and hikers who want to navigate with complete confidence in unknown terrain. Here’s a sample roadbook for rallies:

Digital, or e-roadbooks, leave behind the paper world and use specialized software to customize routes and include very useful information (diagrams, enhanced descriptions, photos, links to external websites, etc.).

So forget about paper and create your e-Roadbook at home on your computer with just a few clicks!

HOW DO I CREATE AN E-ROADBOOK WITH LAND?

Next we’ll show you how to transform your tracks into e-Roadbooks. These are the materials you’ll need to make the most of your adventures:

  • The route track
