Great job of yours but I wish you have all ANTSDK course_points available.
Also, my suggestion is Plotaroute to set which points would be a simple waypoint( when exporting as gpx and what would be a course_point(when exporting as .tcx or .fit) and not mix "Turn Arrow" and "Symbol" because if you use both the result is unpredictable.
That´s mainly because some devices like Fenix 5x only accepts 50 course_points. (to all: keep in mind that if you choose to set an advanced warning in a given distance that will double your actual number of cours_points in the file) so in my case I could only have 25.
Thanks John - such demonstrates also the useful suggestion by Rob Williams @ Tuesday 27 Aug 2019 13:37:41
Thanks Willy - we'll look into this.
Add a Waypoint precisely located on top of existing trackpoint by the Flag Icon.
@ tcx course export I expect the PointType "Generic".
But Plotaroute generates PointType "Straight".
(For manual adding a "Straight" = use turn Arrow Up).
Thanks Rob, it might be something we can add in a future update. My only concern is that flagging certain symbols in this way might cause confusion, as not everybody creates routes to download to TCX or FIT files.
A belated "works well, thanks!"
Can I flag again that it would be helpful if it was obvious from the symbol-picker popup which plotaroute symbols mapped to a valid coursepoint type? Either a different border, or an asterisk, or some kind of filter?
I know that's a very niche request, but so was this entire thread, so thought I'd chance my arm :)
Tested this and it's working great. Thanks a lot.
I think we've got to the bottom of this now! We've made some more changes that should enable the use of course point types in FIT files that aren't supported in TCX files, so this includes:
We've also added support for the following course point types in both TCX and FIT files:
Where a coursepoint has both a turn and one of the supported symbols, the point type for the turn will be used.
Have a try and let us know how you get on.
There do appear to be some issues with this so we've rolled back the changes for now while we investigate further. It seems that TCX files don't support the range of PointTypes that are supported by FIT files, so this complicates things.
Great that you did some quick work on this.
There are some problems in the fit file, though. Sended you a mail with more detailed info.
