TopoFusion Pro / Re: downloading from a garmin device
« Last post by ScottMorris on January 16, 2019, 06:00:58 PM »

Hi Joe,

TopoFusion supports any of the newer Garmin devices that still plug in via USB.  Most of the new watches do not, though -- it's all ANT+ or Bluetooth.

Luckily it is easy to get a GPX file from Garmin's stuff, then plop that over to TF.  That's what I'd recommend.

TopoFusion Pro / downloading from a garmin device

Hello, I bought topofusion years ago to view tracks from my Garmin 301 ... still a great device, but it is having issues syncing w/my PC, so it may finally be time for an upgrade.  With the 301 I could import tracks from the device directly into topofusion.  Does this feature work with new Garmin devices, such as the Forerunner 645?

Hello Scott,
Happy New Year to Everyone.
I noticed a couple days ago the USGS Imagery tiles do not download in many places.
Again, I'm in the Patagonia area, AZ.

Thanks, glad you like it.  It sometimes takes more than one tool to get a (more) complex job done.

There's no road or vector mapping in TF, so that is one thing it lacks. 

It does sound like maybe keeping all your legs in one file but as separate tracks may be the way to go.  You can still profile them and do a bunch of other operations based on each track.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Scott,

You have summed up what I am trying to do perfectly. I think my problem is I have used Basecamp for years and it is getting used to a new way of doing things. As you're no doubt aware in Basecamp as soon as you cut the file it splits into two files. It is just the way I have been used to these things for a few years, maybe thinking about it in 9 out of 10 cases the way Topofusion works is neater and more efficient!

I found the merge tool save as very useful. And the code idea sounds a very good one also.

My 'problem' at the moment is I have a 850 mile cycle ride and I wish to split this into first six days as separate files and then split each day into legs. But thinking about it splinting the legs may be as easy left in the same file.

And the last question. I can't seem to see a way of plotting a route to follow roads?

Excellent package by the way  :)

Welcome.  Let's see if I can help.

So the goal is to open one file, cut it in different places and then export each individual track into separate files?

The first part is easy with the scissors tool.  To save each out individually pretty much requires the merge tool.  Click on each then 'save as...'.

It wouldn't be too hard to write code to save out each track as an increasing numbered sequence (1.gpx, 2.gpx, etc).  But I'd like to understand the background for what you're doing, if you care to share.

Hi thank you for allowing me to join the forum.

I have just been playing with Topofusion, mainly for joining, and editing tracks. Is there a quick way of importing one long track (file I think it is called in Topofusion) and then splitting it and saving them as seperate GPX tracks? I have managed to split and save as one file with multiple tracks in and have also noticed with the merge tool I can save the tracks individually. But it would be handy if it was less of a work around.

Transfusion looks a very good package. I'm currently a Garmin Basecamp user, but basecamp seems less stable and feature rich and I'm looking for an alternative.
