garmin jargon, tracks vs route vs map, etc.
I've been using a smartphone app to record tracks of my rides, but have not used it for directions because (1) it was hard to read in the sunlight and (2) I was terrified of breaking it when I drop my bike. So I picked up a Garmin 64st and a handle bar mount. I have a lot of GPX tracks of my rides, many up on
I've installed basecamp but don't understand how to use it, part is simple terminology.
I am not understanding the difference between
- a GPX track,
- a "track" in garmin speak,
- a route, and
- a map
Can someone help shed some light? are they the same? different? advantages of using one or the other? etc.?
