Thanks for the nice feedback Rob.
For anyone interested in seeing an option to download routes in FIT file format, please vote for this on our feature request list (number 5):
I love the site. Best map creator I have used to date!
I have 2 garmin devices, an edge 810, which can accept .gpx files to create courses. I download from plotaroute straight to the unit, this works great since the unit can convert the gpx files to usable routes.
I also have a 920xt, which only uses .fit files. Would it be possible to add .fit support to the file export?
I know this will also help uusers with the populae Edge 20 and 25 units, which also cannot accept .gpx routes
We are pleased to announce that we have recently added support for uploading Garmin FIT files to plotaroute.com. This means that you can now upload route files in any of the following formats: GPX, TCX, FIT and KML, as well as uploading directly from compatible Garmin devices.
The FIT file format is the format used by most of Garmin's more recent GPS devices, so it is becoming increasingly popular. FIT files store data more efficiently than the more established TCX standard, so this means you can store more data on your device and transfer files more quickly.
To upload a route to plotaroute.com, just select Upload a Route from the menus or use the upload route shortcut: www.plotaroute.com/uploadroute
