NEW GPS ACCESSORIES: Official TwoNav cases

At TwoNav we know how you love experiencing new adventures, trying out new challenges and doing extreme sports that defy your senses.
Having the right gear for these outings is essential so you can avoid unnecessary risks while doing any outdoor activity.

Just like you protect yourself both while doing an activity and then when you get home, it’s also vital to take care of your gear, including the GPS unit so you can stretch its useful life to the maximum.

Accessories like the TwoNav cases help protect your GPS unit in the riskiest situations. Keep it safe inside this sturdy structure, specifically designed to fit your TwoNav GPS unit

In our catalogue you’ll currently find two different models with the same finishes but in two sizes to snugly fit your device so it can absorb most of the shock in the event of an impact. It’s the familiar Case S and the new, larger Case L.

Fundas oficiales de TwoNav S y L
CASE S: DESIGNED FOR THE SPORTIVA AND ANIMA

The Case S is specifically sized for the Sportiva (Sportiva, Sportiva+, Sportiva 2, Sportiva2 +) and Anima (Anima y Anima+) range of devices. Thanks to its design the GPS unit will be perfectly protected during the most extreme activities. It’s made of rigid materials and features a design with internal compartments and a D-ring. You can attach it to a belt,  rucksack, your shoulder or even your waist. Even if it rains or if you hit the GPS unit, this case will keep it safe.

CASE L: CREATED SPECIALLY FOR ADVENTURE

The Case L is larger than the Case S and is specifically designed to fit the Aventura family of devices. Equally resistant to water and impacts as the S model, it maintains the exclusive TwoNav design adapting perfectly to the shape of the Aventura GPS units. It also has compartments where you can store a spare battery or other accessories. You’ll be able to carry the device on your belt or  rucksack, or hang the case from your shoulder or your waist and have it always protected.

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.

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?

  • Land software (lets you turn tracks into e-Roadbooks)
