Hi there, I'm currently using Nuvi 205W. Is there a way that I can contribute new tracks using this unit? I could not find the setting for this unit to collect tracklogs at 1 second intervals. Please advise. Thanks!
Note, Nuvi 205W cannot
get 1 second intervals track, and cannot
easily turn off locking to roads.
However, Nuvi 205W can do "most often" tracks (triplog), that records trackpoints at varying 3s to 20s intervals. You can sort of turn off locking to roads, by totally switching off the map. Very necessary to do that else the triplog will snap to the nearest road in the map. The resultant "most often, no map" tracks from Nuvi 205W, may be useful to our mappers if there is no existing roads at all in that area. However, our mappers really really prefer 1 second track logs because it is much more accurate and much much easier to interpret, particular at junctions.
When submitting such "most often, no map", it is even more important for you to review the tracks in Mapsource and add clarification waypoints to areas where the lack of 1 second trackpoints makes the tracks unclear (hard to interpret).
