OK, my original HOW TO (http://www.marengo-ltd.com/gps/index.php) detailed how to get a track ONTO your GPS unit. The Marengo Route Planner allows you to define a route suitable for this.
But many people have asked how to do the opposite – get a track, i.e. a recorded route, OFF of the GPS unit and into the Route Planner. This post shows you how.
There a several reasons why you may want to do this: you might have ridden a good route, and you want to share it with friends in the form of a GPX file that they can upload to their units via the Marengo Route Planner. Or you may have defined a route, and, when riding it, lost the track. You might want to therefore upload the real route you took and compare it to the planned route, to see where you went wrong.
OK, so here’s the HOW TO for this: http://www.marengo-ltd.com/gps/converting_tracks.php. It also includes a link to a handy converter utility I knocked up last night, which converts GPX tracks to GPX routes.
Drop me a note if there’s anything that doesn’t make sense or could be improved.
