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: More precise tools to edit tracks

If you are among those who like to edit tracks and add shortcuts, with this new version of Land, you’ll notice that we have made some improvements to this tool. You will gain agility and precision in editing. Read on to find out more:

Up until now, when you wanted to edit a track, you had to right click and select ‘Edit track’, only being able to edit the selected track and one at a time.

In this new version of Land 8.6, by pressing ‘Edit track’ in the toolbar, all the tracks opened in the map window will enter ‘Edit’ mode. This means from now on you can edit all the tracks you want at one time, giving you more agility and without having to jump from track to track, opening and closing menus continuously.

 

 

In addition, Land 8.6 improves the accuracy of the following tools for the vector track editor:

Track points and cursors: The usability of the editing process has improved with a new redesign and effects to achieve a better user experience during editing

Redraw freehand track: Use this tool to remove parts of the track by redrawing it. Instead of deleting the track points one by one and marking them again, place the cursor at the point from which you want to start another path and click. Then draw freehand the new route layout (the previous points will be removed as you redraw the itinerary).

Add track points: Activated by default when creating and editing a track. Now, with this same tool activated you can also select, move or delete points from the track.

Add intermediate track points: The accuracy of the tool is improved.

 

 

Furthermore, now you can also access the vector track editor from the properties of each of your tracks, giving you even more accessibility.

Remember that you can add more tools in the vector track editor, just right click on the bar and press ‘Customize’.

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.

Hiking, News, Products

Want to know which GPS is best suited to your type of hiking activity?

David Albert, Product Manager at TwoNav, kindly agreed to answer a series of questions about the new line-up of TwoNav hiking GPS units. If you’re still unsure as to which device is best suited to your activity, read on as David tells us the difference between them.

 

David, thanks for granting us this interview. Of all the GPS units for hiking, Horizon, Aventura and Trail, which is best suited to each type of activity?

First of all, it’s important to note that these devices are designed to satisfy the needs of all types of hikers, whether they are amateurs or experienced. The Horizon, Aventura and Trail all include TwoNav’s software, so it’s their physical characteristics that make the difference and determine which are more suited to a given activity.

 

 

Let’s start with Horizon. What’s its target consumer?

Horizon is the evolution of Anima, which in turn was derived from the old Sportiva. Horizon maintains the same look as its predecessors but it’s adapted to current needs. Horizon is an affordable solution that meets the needs of casual hikers and of those who are just starting out. Horizon is the GPS for nature lovers who are interested in doing medium or longer routes.

 

 

The name of the second device may be familiar to many TwoNav users, it’s the Aventura. What makes it unique?

That’s right! The first Aventura model was marketed in 2009. Many of our readers no doubt have an Aventura, it was a very successful GPS. Well, now we’re presenting the new generation of Aventura, one that’s much more technically advanced while keeping the essential aspects that worked so well in the first model. Aventura is an extreme GPS designed for mountain climbers. If you like to practise mountaineering in severe conditions, Aventura is the GPS for you! Aventura features exceptional worldwide coverage, which is very useful for getting around in unknown places knowing that you won’t get lost.

 

What can you tell us about Trail? How is it different from Horizon and Aventura?

Trail is an intermediate GPS between Horizon and Aventura. You could call it an affordable version of Aventura since it offers the same features but with fewer accessories. Trail has a larger display than Horizon, which is perfect for those who like to interact with the screen on the GPS. It’s also designed for specialised hikers who are used to going out more often. In other words, for enthusiasts who are actively involved in different types of hiking, both morning outings and more demanding activities, like treks lasting several days.

 

 

At the hardware level, what are the differences?

Horizon only weighs 125 gr. It’s a light and compact GPS measuring 60x105x23 mm, perfect for carrying in the hand or pocket. It has the same physical characteristics that were already used in Anima and Sportiva, namely the two side buttons. Aventura and Trail, on the other hand, weigh more than Horizon due to their much larger screens (3.7”). Another difference between Aventura and Trail with respect to Horizon is the buttons; both devices have four front buttons, two side buttons and a joystick, perfect for using the GPS even with gloves on.

 

 

How long does the battery on each device last?

Horizon has a removable battery that last 8 hours, which can be doubled with a spare battery. As for Trail, it has a built-in 20-hour battery. This completely weatherseals the unit and keeps mud and water from coming into contact with the internal circuitry. Aventura has a 24-hour battery life, the longest of all three. Its removable battery can also be replaced with a spare. Aventura is especially designed for climbers who travel for days or weeks and are unable to recharge the GPS.

 

David, what maps come with Horizon, Aventura and Trail?

All the units come with a base map and a topographic map of the user’s choosing. The maps are very accurate and provide a good land-based reference for finding alternative routes on any outing. Aventura also includes a TomTom road map, which turns it into a useful in-car navigation system.

 

 

Can you load more maps?

Yes, the internal memory on the devices is accessible so you always have the option to load more maps into the device. Horizon has an internal 8-GB memory and you can add a microSD card with more maps (topographic maps, road maps, satellite images, etc.). Trail doesn’t have a microSD card slot but it does have twice the internal memory of Horizon, so Trail lets you load up to 16 GB of maps. As for Aventura, it too has a 16-GB internal memory, which you can expand with a microSD card with maps of other countries.

 

David, we appreciate your time and thank you for giving us more insight into each GPS.
