    Hi John.

    Sure Garmin navigation by tcx (fit) is popular but new development is not announced by Garmin.

    In tcx course navigation coursepoints info is in <Name><Notes> AND (always English) <PointType> (Informative_compact) 

    Plotaroute gpx track navigation info in waypoints is in <name><cmt><desc> and always <sym>Flag, Blue (Non informative)

    My suggestion: Add compact direction information into the (always English) <sym> (Similar to the tcx system).

    In link see the attached gpx navigation waypoints by informative <sym> as used by Android Locus app.  

    Contains not only basic Left Right Straight but has extra instructions as set by the <sym> text.

    A rarity in free gpx development but would be appreciated there is some uniformity in used <sym>.

    We are planning to add some new features to enhance the routes directions in the next update to the route planner, including the ability to change turn arrows.

    Feature ID61: +/-  as in the picture ?  

    Creating short commands in tcx <Name> or  gpx <name> In  tcx <Name> 10 character limit by the Garmin tcx standard !

    In tcx <Pointtype> out of 16 types, has 3 directions types, Left/Right/Straight.  

    As there exist "no gpx navigation standard system" suggest to use a most similar gpx <sym> by the typical standard Garmin gpx symbol range.

    Same as by the "JavawaRTWtool" converting the tcx coursepoints into gpx waypoints.
