Land: Tracks saved automatically in real time

Do you like editing your own tracks? Download Land 8.9 and try autosave for tracks and waypoints. Forget about saving the changes you make, Land will do it for you!

 

Until now, if you made any changes to tracks or waypoints (edit points on the itinerary, change track colour, etc.), you had to save the files again to store the changes. If you didn’t, the changes were lost.

Starting with Land 8.9, each time you edit a track or make changes to your waypoints, these changes will be saved automatically without having to manually press ‘Save’.

 

 

Land joins other applications on the market, such as Google Drive, where changes are saved in real time. Don’t worry and focus on what matters most: your next outing.

Look at the data tree, when you see the “!” icon next to the file you are editing, this means that the changes haven’t been saved yet. In a few seconds, the icon will disappear and the changes will be saved.

 

 

If you want to disable autosave, go to: ‘Main menu > Options > General > Autosave’.

Land: View the routes stored on your PC by folders

Find the route you’re looking for on your computer more easily without leaving Land. The data tree will show you the routes by folder, just as they’re organised on your PC. Download Land 8.9 now!

 

Until now, you were able to access the routes saved on your computer without leaving Land from the Land data tree (section ‘Stored files> My PC > Routes’). These routes appeared in a list one after another, even if they were distributed in subfolders inside your computer. 

 

 

With Land 8.9, these same routes will be shown already arranged by folder (same folder structure that you have on your computer). Remember that you can right-click to use the sort-by filter to more easily find the route you’re looking for.

 

 

You will also be able to see the same folder organisation on Go.TwoNav.com and on your TwoNav GPS (the device must have TwoNav 4.8 or higher).

Land: Improved file syncing with the GO Cloud

File sync with the GO Cloud continues to improve in Land 8.9. Now, every time you delete a file from your computer, it will also be removed from the Cloud.

 

If you install Land 8.9, every time you delete a file from the explorer in your computer, it will also be deleted in the GO Cloud. For more security, Land will ask for confirmation before deleting the files from the Cloud that you deleted on your computer.

 

 

This way, you can delete files from your computer while keeping them in the GO Cloud, and thus have them stored in a safe place that’s accessible from other devices (TwoNav GPS, TwoNav app and Land).

Land: New ‘Undo’ and ‘Redo’ functions in the button bar

How many times have you created a point-to-point itinerary, only to realise that you took the wrong path? Download Land 8.9 now and try the ‘Undo’ and ‘Redo’ buttons.

 

In order to make Land simpler and more practical, in Land 8.9 we have rearranged the top bar by removing the ‘Play track’ button to make room for two new features along the centre:

Undo: Deletes the last change made.

Redo: Restore the change you undid.

 

Both functions are intended to make it easier to edit tracks, although you can also use ‘Undo’/’Redo’ when creating waypoints, editing track properties, etc.

 

When creating point-to-point routes

For example, if during the creation of a track you take the wrong turn, now you can undo the change without having to delete that part of the point-to-point route. Just press ‘Undo’, and if you change your mind, you can always redo the changes and continue with that alternate route.

 

When editing properties

Another example: if you want to change the colour or thickness of an itinerary and you end up leaving like it was at the beginning, you will no longer have to remember what parameters you had set up. Press ‘Undo’ and you will retrieve the track you had before you started editing it.

 

 

By the way, if you miss any of the buttons you used to use, remember that Land lets you customise the button bar according to your needs. To add, move or delete any of the buttons, right click on the bar and press Customise.

Land: Close several files at once in just 1 click

Many of you have been asking for this improvement for some time. Well, here it is!

‘Shift’ key: Use it to close a list of elements from the first one to the last one selected (all the elements between them will be closed.

 

‘Control’ key: Use it to select individual elements you want to close.

Use of Land, by Théo Meuzard

Use of Land, by Théo Meuzard

Analysis of a route and the corresponding base map before going to the place in question.
(Course downloaded from the Internet, on a site like Utagawa for example …) Ideal for discovering an unknown area, while having all the information necessary for the outing to go well.

Choice and download of the track (here on Utagawa). Then trace loaded on Go cloud and synchronized on my GPS and Land, without any particular manipulation.

Trace and corresponding base map imported into Land for analysis. Easy import thanks to Go Cloud synchronization. Then I identify the direction of the route, possibilities to cut and lengthen the route. Analysis of the elevation and the main difficulties. I mark where I can park, possible water points etc …

Example of analysis: Analysis of the profile of the course.

Other use: Creation of my track. I create my track by hand by placing dots on the background map.

I can then analyze my journey and find out what I’m getting into.
