My first post here as I just bougth a 580p yesterday.
Frist of all I would like to thank everyone that spends some time here trying and in deed helping others!
My questions were several but I managed to get almost all of them answered by reading other topics.
Nevertheless I still have a few doubts!
I use Strava a lot anda already know that it is only possible to export my activity using SportTraks (Hope Globalsat can introduce a feature in order to do it straight from the device or globalsat own software)
As we compete with each other on Strava to get the best time, we also like to share our rides with our Strava friends as well as see the routes they do and discover new places by doing so.
-I believe I can use a gpx from a friend, insert it on the 580p device in order to follow the same route he did by using the "Open File" and selecting the gpx file, right? or is it best to open a kml file previously converted from his gpx?
-After opening the file, the only way to export his route to the device is by the "Data Transmission" - "Track Points" - "Upload to Device"?
I ask this because it will appear on the device as a "Activity" and not as a "Route" which was more likely to happen, right?
-Is it possible to follow your friend's "Route" or "Activity" or "Waypoint" (depending on the previous answer) and at the same time record your own activity (speed, time, hr, cadence, etc.) in order to get home and export your gpx to Strava?
I hope my questions are easy to understand and I truly hope you can help me out on this ones.
All the best
