Using RidewithGPS - which is the best file format to use - GPX or TCX to provide TBT navigation?
What are the pros and cons of GPX vs TCX?
For "turn guidance" (the big white arrows), tcx and gpx work exactly the same.
Tcx files can also contain "control points", which are a "primitive" form of TBT intended (basically) for units that don't use maps. The "course points" work independently from "turn guidance". Most of the units let you use both or one or the other (or none of them).
Tcx files are just a text (xml) format for fit files. Regarding navigation, the two types contain the same information.
Garmin Connect isn't doing anything that rwgps is doing. That is both work equally well for navigation.
You can switch the calculation of turn instructions off, if that is what you are asking.
Menu -> Navigation -> Courses -> Course Options -> Turn Guidance (On/Off)
But will you get the turn guidance from the tcx or fit file when you turning this off?
Thanks for your help. Do you mean the big white arrows on the map? Give course points pop-up messages like "150 meter go to left" in top of the screen?
What other big white arrows are there?
The text at the top is also part of "turn guidance".
You can get "turn guidance" with tcx and gpx.
You get "course points" only with tcx.
"Course points" have much more abbreviated (shorter) text with little arrow icons.
Maybe, create a short course around your neighborhood and compare the two (they will need different names)?
I am familiar with bove. So how can I get "Turn guidance" with tcx/fit/gpx without calulation on the edge 520 plus? I got them on my old 520 but I am not aible to get this on my new 520 plus.
