Tracks not locking on actual road - Can anyone help?
« on: October 11, 2018, 11:08:22 am »
With updated T4A and the various GPS units (395 and Montana) I found that a track that was created on Basecamp or Mapsource sometimes does not lock on the actual road itself on the GPS's map. In some places it does and in others it overruns or runs next to the road by a fair margin.
Does anyone know how to fix this.

The same tracks uploaded to other units lock on the road perfectly.

Not so easy to fix. Depends on how accurate the maps are. If you have accurate maps redraw the routes over the tracks (where roads are available) and then convert the new route to a track again

One option is to actually record the track with the GPS

The other option that might work is to view the track in Google Earth and correct it manually.
