Recording Function on Rider 40


Userlevel 1
A few weeks ago I went for a quiet Sunday ride and decided on the way back to try out the record function and was pleased with how it worked. Went for another 70km ride today around Adelaide with record on and just rode around with no particular path in mind and just used the gps map screen for direction and for where my location was. Does anyone else used the record function?

Thanks Joel. I could imagine that a wall displayed with copies of the recorded trips you have done would look good. (man cave or shed)
Hi Paul, I record most of my trips that I do in the ACT and surrounding NSW country side, no idea what I'll do with the records as yet but I do view the trips later

There would be some great rides around Canberra. Have not been there for years but really enjoyed my trips there.

what doesn't work about it ??
Apparently if the file size is too large it won't share.
Just back from a five day trip and I can't get at my recordings.

If you can open it try breaking it down into smaller sections like days or am/pm
Nice idea, but won't work. You can't even edit the track name on the Rider, let along open it. You have to select share on the Rider before the file becomes visible on the file system visible on a PC, and the Rider will not share.

If TomTom will release details of the fault, how big a file size before it won't share and how long it takes to create a file of that size. The you could stop recording, if you remember, and start recording again.

But to find the fault by trial and error would take a hell of a long time, unless your lucky.

How about importing the (route) into a mapping program such as tyre bypassing the rider in the process. Then you would be able to manipulate it to suit your needs.
But I am not sure why you are having a problem as I have planned a number of one thousand mile rides and loaded them.
Just one point tyre has a limit of 50 points or it may be 100 now and if the import has more you have the option to reduce them.

I have recorded a (route) of 150 plus miles if that is of any help. I have just loaded it up ok

You are talking about planning routes on PC, or other device using MyDrive, Tyre, Myroute, ITN Converter or other route planning applications, and then transferring them to the Rider.

This topic is talking about recording your route (activated by "start recording" on the Rider) the Rider will record where you have been not where you want to go. This is useful for keeping track of where you have been.

The fault is that although the Rider has recorded the track you cannot access it as it is not visible in the file system when the Rider is connected to a computer.
