Prepare a route for IGO8
#1
hi,
I w'd like prepare a route, with the Windows-PC, for IGO8 on Mio C250+.

I think to this way/steps:
a) prepare the route with Google.maps (more user frendly than with the nav) ,
b) export route to .kml file
c) with routeconverter convert it in to ?? format
d) export file to nav in to folder ?

Someone can me help, to found a solution to my problem ?

Thanks in advance !!!!!!!!

Hi Luciana,

you'll have problems with step c) since IGO8 uses a binary format. See the faq for an explanation.

There is a way to get Routes into the igo8.
I tested it and for me it works fine.
First you have to create the following directories in the ig8-directory on your sd-card: \iGO8\CONTENT\USERDATA\ROUTE
If you now copy .kml (e.g. Google-Earth) in Version 4 or 4.2 into the new "ROUTE" directory then the route will be imported automatically at igo8 starts. Please do not forget to check the optionbox for "saving as route, track and waypointlist", like it is done in the attachment.
The imported rout appears in light grey and it is recommended to open it and to save it as newroute. Then you can delete the imported one.
As I said, I tested it an it works fine.

Hi JAD,

welcome in the RouteConverter Forum.

The checkbox does not appear, because you already have track & waypoint list in your file.

See attached pic:
Just open the Position list, select either track or waypoint list and delete the selected with the red "X" to see the checkbox.

Best regards,

Thanks for this exlanation, it works great for me Smile

Is there also a way to get tracks into IGO? (I tried a \TRACK subdirectory instead of ROUTE but that didn't work).

The problem using routes in my case is that I only want to display the track (as a line), and when converted to a route it contains hundreds of little flags in IGO (the waypoints)...

Thanks again,

Werner
