FodSports waterproof GPS - uploading rout unsuccessfully

Post by Navrix » Fri Apr 27, 2018 10:12 am

Hi guys.
I have bought Chinese waterproof navigation "FodSports" with "IGO Primo" GPS system inside. Works fine, but faced with some problem. Trying to upload the routes inside, but without any success. Maybe somebody can help me?

I have my .kml (and .gpx as well) file with saved TET Route, but unfortunately I can not find it in my navigation iGO primo.
I have tried creating following folders on Resident Flash: CONTENT/USERDATA/ROUTES/ and copied in my .kml route, but after restarting my device can't find it in saved routes. I have tried to copy my .kml file in POI and again, can not find it anywhere between POI objects.
Created the same on SD card: PRIMO/CONTENT/USERDATA/ROUTES/ and copied in my .kml route. Changed Navi Path to SDMMC. Again, my route is not appearing anywhere.
After I tried to copy all PRIMO folder on my SD card and without any success.
The size of my .kml route file is 307KB.
I have red internet across to find any solution for this problem, but without any success. Unfortunately I am not a big IT specialist and have no idea, what I am doing wrong. Maybe somebody have any idea, what could help?

One thing is that the TET is not a "Route", it's a track. I'm not familiar with the IGO Primo, sorry

Is there any difference? The track or route file anyway is in the .gpx or .kml file format.

A track is fixed. It cannot be changed, it does not rely on waypoints, it's like a line drawn in ink on a paper map.
A route is a preferred way between a series of waypoints. It can be recalculated (re routed) by the GPS device or computer, it is not fixed. It follows whatever algorithms have been set in the software. These can vary, so the route will vary too.
The problem with a route is that if the device does not believe there is a "road" to a waypoint it will try to find another way there, probably not the TET way.
