Sync with Tread

Post by Johan EE »

When making a route with Tread it syncs to the zumo but it’s not exactly the same. Why is that? The Zumo version has much less turns.

Welcome to the forum !

This is a route and not a track. You have just two points on the route. When the Zumo receives the route it often recalculates it. I noticed the other day that it mentioned that the XT2 didn't recognise the profile name used, and it had to recalculate. I hadn't set a name - I just used that set in tread. I think it was 'Zumo Motorcycle'.

I've yet to reproduce this and report it.
Have owned Zumo 550, 660 == Now have Zumo XT2, XT, 595, 590, Headache
Use Basecamp (mainly), MyRouteApp (sometimes)
