Is it possible to program a training with decimal values in the kilometers, like 1.35 kms? I have a rigorous training plan and I enjoyed it, but I
I can not put decimal values when programming the training. Can you help?

    No, it only goes to a single decimal, so you will have to either round or make do with it as it is. I am not sure they will change this as yours is the first request I remember for it in several years, and demand = resources. Without it being a high demand item they are not likely to spend the resources to implement it. the target audience is a more casual athlete, so this level of rigor is going to be unnecessary for most users. TomTom will not comment on planned or future updates publicly (here or elsewhere) so we will just have to wait and see.

    I hope this helps, please let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    It's really a shame. In my opinion Tom Tom should invest in this development.

    It may get on the list but I imagine it would be towards the bottom. Again, development is all based on user demand and you are the first person I can recall ever asking for it on the user forums. I had to actually check that it was only one digit as I never even considered it. Ultimately any development needs to drive new sales and new customers to pay fro itself and I doubt this is going to attract new users. But you never know.

    I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.

    If you have APP for training plans with detail of the KM, why you can't import the training with the exact time and km to tom tom system? That will be a good solution.

    Because you can't import training plans into the watch, all it supports is a very simple interval function. Again, by design this is a simple, straightforward watch without a lot of customization aimed at the casual user. For rigorous plans or more serious athletes, there are more appropriate watches on the market. TomTom is budget device aimed at a certain audience.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
