  • STANDARD feature - Converting File types

    Everyone listen up especially you race organizers!

    We are going to show you how easy it is to convert navigation file types back and fourth.

    To start with we break down the typical types of files found in navigation.
    GPX - The standard in navigation. Compatible with a number of GPS devices and software to include LEADNAV, Garmin, Lowrance and all other Tablet and Smartphone navigation applications.
    KML - Used in Google Earth
    KMZ- The zipped version of KML
    USR- Used by Lowrance

    So with that...there is absolutely no reason for a race or any other organization to not put out GPX as their primary file. If you were to pick just one...GPX is the right answer...everyone nod your head "yes"...

    I don't care if you built the event on a Garmin, Lowrance, Google Earth or, what you should be using, LEADNAV GPS with the Pro Pack, we are going to show how easy it is to convert them all with a click of a button for free.


    Download a FREE program called GPSBabel for your PC or Mac. "Yes you need a computer"

    Install it then Start it

    Now go through these steps

    1 - Select the current file format of what you want converted
    2 - Choose the actual file wherever it is on your computer
    3 - Make sure all three of these are selected
    4 - Select the format you want to convert over to
    5 - Select a name and where you want the converted file to go
    6 - Hit OK

    Your Done! Congrats!

    Now convert Collections that you build in LEADNAV to USR or KML and vice versus all day long! Find State park files online and convert them to GPX to import into LEADNAV

    Remember USR and KML/KMZ Tracks are just breadcrumbs. When imported into LEADNAV use Menu to select these Blue Convert to Red Routes. Then they are Editable and Runable in LEADNAV GPS!

  • Re: Ipad Mini 2

    I would go 3 suction cup to be sure... We actually don't even carry the single suction cup for the 1.5" ball that we use for our tablets (1" ball is for phones)

    I know its a little overkill but I don't think a single will work well at all. Too much leverage on a single contact point... they do have 2 suction cup models... but we don't stock those currently either.

    3 suction cup being what we use mostly for window mount with the 9.7" iPads...

Howdy, Stranger!
