  • delete a recorded track from mapshare

    How can I delete a recorded track from mapshare? Deleted the trip info and alll protocols from the device and did a sync. Still seeing the old track on my mapshare map. Any ideas - thanks a lot!

    The only way I know of is to go to "History" and delete the history points.

      With regard to MapShare specifically, the easiest thing to do is to set the earliest date for which visitors can see data. You can do this from the MapShare options on your account at inreach.garmin.com. Start on the Social tab and look for the options buttons. Of course, this assumes that it's the oldest data which you want to hide.

        Go to the Map tab while logged in (not as a public viewer) and expand the "tracks" link under your name. You can then select each Track Summary and click the bin icon as shown in the attached screenshot. It will then no longer be visible to viewers of your public or password-protected MapShare link. Deleting points or messages on your device does not remove them from MapShare.

          Note that this also removes it permanently from your inreach.garmin.com account, not just from MapShare.

            I'd like to agree with NathanaelC and twolpert, but that's not the behavior I'm seeing. I have gone to my account and deleted all messages and, employing the method described by NathanelC, deleted all tracks.

            They disappear from the left column, yet still show on the map (photo #1)

            Each delete says it can't be undone (Photo #2)

            If I subsequently log out and back in, they are in the left column again. (photo #3)

              I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but when I am getting ready to start hike or bike ride, I go to tracking and click on "Clear" in the bottom right. Click on that and I see "Clear the track log?" Click on the newly appeared "Clear", then click on "Reset All" or "Reset Trip". This seems to work ok for reducing the clutter, at least on the inReach. It doesn't remove the tracks on the map on my PC or Earthmate, though

                I've never actually looked at it thoroughly. But even if everything is working correctly on the web site (sounds like it might not be), the data on the device interacts with the data on the web site during a sync. So if you don't also delete the data from the device, it may well reappear on the web site the next time you sync. To further complicate things, on the device you have both the sent track points (which show up in history) and the logged track points (which show up on the map and as "used space" on the tracking screen). The latter is what wstaraka is referring to immediately above. To fully remove the lines from the maps, you need to clear out both sent points and logged points.

                Also note that both wired sync (USB cable connecting the inReach to your PC) and OTA sync (via the Earthmate app with a Bluetooth connection between device and phone) transfer track data.

                  OK, finally got a chance to poke around with this again. Went to each individual device and cleared everything in sight, including History, then did a sync on all and all remained clean. What a pain, but at least I don't have all that old stuff cluttering things up.
