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.

create tracks

Did you know that… TwoNav lets you create tracks using laps?

This week in “Did you know that”, we discuss one of TwoNav’s least known features: dividing tracks into laps.

One of TwoNav’s least known features is the ability to subdivide the track you’re navigating into sections, either by time or distance. These sections are called laps, and they’re very useful when analyzing each section in more detail, letting your improve your performance with every lap.

WHAT TYPES OF LAPS ARE THERE?

There are two types of laps:

  • Automatic laps: The track is divided into sections of equal size based on a fixed interval (every kilometer, every hour…).

create tracks

  • Manual laps: These are sections of the track that are not necessarily the same size (distance or time). With manual laps, it’s the user who decides where to start a new lap.

create tracks

HOW CAN I CREATE LAPS AUTOMATICALLY?

TwoNav lets you create laps automatically for any type of activity without having to interact with the app, TwoNav will create the laps using your previously specified settings. What’s more, with every new lap, TwoNav will show very useful information on the screen:

  1. Before starting the activity, set up TwoNav to create laps automatically during the activity. Go to ‘Main menu > Settings > Autolaps’ and specify whether to create laps based on time or distance.
  • Autolaps by distance: By default, the track will be divided into 1-kilometer laps.
  • Autolaps by time: By default, the track will be divided into 1-hour laps.

Note: To modify either of the two intervals above (for example, divide the track into 5-kilometer laps instead of 1-kilometer), change it directly by going into ‘Main menu > Settings > Navigation > Autolaps’.

create tracks

  1. Start your activity as usual.
  1. When you go over (1 kilometer or 1 hour), TwoNav will display a pop-up window showing highlights from the lap you just completed. This information will help you improve your performance on every lap.

Note: You can specify the information to be shown on this pop-up window by going into ‘Main menu > Settings > Alarms > Lap change’.

HOW CAN I CREATE LAPS MANUALLY?

In contrast, if you want to zero in on your performance, TwoNav gives you the option of defining your own laps. This way, you can decide when to start and finish a lap:

  1. Start your activity as usual.
  1. When you want to create a new lap, just press ‘Page tools > Mark > Lap’.

create tracks

  1. TwoNav will then display a pop-up window showing highlights from the lap you just completed. This information will help you improve your performance on every lap.

Note: You can specify the information to be shown on this pop-up window by going into ‘Main menu > Settings > Alarms > Lap change’.

  1. In addition, TwoNav will highlight the new lap using a different color from the rest of the track.
  1. If you want to create more laps, repeat the above steps as often as you need.

HOW CAN I DISPLAY LAPS?

Once they’re created, you can see the laps (both manual and automatic):

  • Overlaid on the map
  • On the listing of laps
