A route can be uploaded from your GPS system to the RouteYou website so the route can be edited (change your track, add POIs, change the description and title), printed and displayed in the RouteViewer.
Upload the route/track from your PC to the RouteYou web environment
Edit and enrich your route with the RouteYou-tools
Step 1: Upload the track from your GPS to your PC
If the track is already on your PC, jump to step 2.
Copy using File explorer
Connect your device via a (USB) cable with your PC
Activate File Explorer
Selecter via File Explorer your GPS-device and search/find the directory where the GPS track-files (*.GPX or *.GDB or *.TCX or *.FIT) are located. The directory structure is different for each type of GPS device.
Copy/paste the track-file (GPX) to you PC
Transfer a track via Basecamp to your PC (only for Garmin)
Basecamp makes a connection between your Garmin GPS and your PC. If your GPS is connected, Basecamp will show you GPS device and you can select the files via File/Export.
Step 2: Uploading a track to the RouteYou environment
Put the file of your GPS-track from your GPS to your PC.
Select Add data in the hamburger menu on the left and select the option Upload route
Select the file (GPS-track) for upload (see below the supported formats)
Give a name, type and description to your route
After upload, your route will be processed and you will receive an email when it is done
Formats and content supported for upload
Not all formats and versions are supported for upload!
The GPX format (recommend). Your GPX can contain as well a continuous track, as a a route (see further). Remark: when a GPX-file contains several tracks/routes, only the longest track/route will be processed.
The format GDB 2.0, and 3.0. Your GDB can contain as well a continuous track, as a a route (see further). Remark: when a GDB-file contains several tracks/routes, only the longest track/route will be processed
In case the file contains a route (vs a track), the way-points will be used as markers on the RouteYou network and we will (re)calculate the route between the way-points. (We use the OpenStreetMap network.)
