Creating waypoints just got easier! Download Land 8.6 and and follow these steps:

1 – Click on ‘New waypoint’ in the toolbar, position in the upper part of Land.

2 – Then, a window will open where you can add basic data of the point you are about to mark: name and waypoint icon. This ensures that all your waypoints will have a name and icon associated to it, preventing you leaving any out and have to go back to rename them at a later stage.

3 – Finally, move the cursor over the map and decide where you want to mark your waypoint. As you move your cursor, the waypoint icon will follow you until you click on the exact position to locate the new point.

 

Once created, remember that you can open the properties of your waypoints and add more information any time, like description, add attachments, show area around you etc.

Land: Create tracks more intuitively

From now on it will be much easier to create a track for your next activity. Land now provides you with distance and ascent data while you plan your route. Discover how:

 

 

We released a new vector track editor, where it appears horizontally just below the toolbar (previously it appeared vertically next to the toolbar). Follow these steps to try it now:

1 – Click on ‘Create track’ in the toolbar, located in the upper part of Land.

2 – Once the vector track editor is displayed, press ‘New track’.

3 – Then, a window will open where you can add basic data of the track that you have to mark: name, type of activity and colour of the track line.

4 – Once defined, create the first track point exactly where you want to start your route.

5 – Then, click on the map somewhere else and you will automatically create the second point of your itinerary. Repeat the same action until you reach your destination point. As you create the points, you will see how the distance and ascension data will calculate automatically in the toolbar.

6 – Before finalising your itinerary, press the ‘Properties’ button to consult more properties of the track to complement it with even more information like description, add attachments, difficulty, thick line of the track etc.

7 – Finish creating your route, by clicking the ‘Finish edition’ button.

Land: Quickly create Roadbook points from the track editor

Haven’t discovered the world of e-Roadbooks yet? Turn your tracks into e-Roadbooks with the Roabook point creation tool. Learn how:

 

 

When you edit any of your tracks, remember that from the track editor you can quickly convert them into e-Roadbooks, giving you tracks enriched with all kinds of information like comments, photographs etc. Let us show you how:

1 – Open the track of your last activity.

2 – Click on ‘Edit track’ in the toolbar, located in the upper part of Land.

3 – Click on any point on the track where you want to create an e-Roadbook point. Once selected, press ‘Add e-Roadbook point’ in the vector track editor.

4 – Next, a window will open where you can indicate the basic data of the point you have to mark: name and icon.

5 – Then create the e-Roadbook point in the location you selected. As you can see, in Land 8.6 e-Roadbook points have a round shape, unlike traditional waypoints that have a square shape. This way it’s easier to differentiate between e-Roadbooks and waypoints.

6 – Repeat the same action for each point you want to highlight.

 

If you want to add more information to your e-Roadbook points, right click on the track and select ‘Edit > Edit e-Roadbook’. A drop-down menu will open where you can add more information to your points like, description, sketches, photographs etc.

Land: Transfer routes to your TwoNav GPS via WiFi

Tired of using cables to connect your GPS to your computer? With this new version of Land 8.6, you can transfer your route to your GPS in one click. Learn how:

With this update you can now send your activities to your GPS without having to connect via a USB cable. Just open the context menu on the route you want to transfer and press ‘Send to > My GPS’. You can do it from the data tree or directly above the element on the map window. Remember that to send your routes via WiFi, your TwoNav GPS must have version TwoNav 4.5 (or higher) and GO must be activated in both Land and GPS.

As of now, when your device has a WiFi connection, it will automatically receive the file (a received file message will appear on the screen). Then, the file will be downloaded automatically and, once complete, will appear open in the list of routes (‘Main menu > Routes’).

If, in addition to Land, you also use the TwoNav GO Platform (go.twonav.com), you can  transfer your routes directly to your GPS via WiFi. Find the route you wish to transfer and just click on ‘Send to GPS’.

Furthermore, if the transferred file is inside a folder, it will also be sent, enabling you to keep the same folder structure.
