Each route includes an ordered sequence of rtept elements, which repeat the information in the wpt elements.Route points in ACA files repeat some waypoints. Not all waypoints are present in routes. They are points of interest or reference. For example, in the Green Mountains file, near the beginning of route R01010, near its first route point R01080, there are three waypoints that are not part of the route at all: R0104A (hotel), R01040 (bicycle shop), R01030 (bicycle shop).
Good catch I meant to say that I did not further process this file, create new content, or use a mapping tool. I simply deleted the waypoints using a text editor.To clarify, the sample Green Mountains GPX file I provided was not calculated or created by a computer.Sure it was, probably by my copy of MapSource, or another volunteer's, maybe by Jennifer's at ACA.
I took it one step further to see what the 60CS does to a route when a waypoint on it is present and is moved by editing in the GPSR but the route is not edited. When asked to navigate the route, the unit follows the change. I'd summarize it by saying that the 60CS uses waypoints info when present, otherwise uses the route points.The Edge 705 behaved kept the route intact. I edited the waypoint far off course, and that did not change the route.
What happens when you change a waypoint that does not belong to a route, such as R0104A?
