Sorry, I had it backwards. You can create a route but cannot convert it to a track.
You can convert a track to a route in VP.

Basically it's set up to create a track with the GPSr and then edit the track and convert it to a route in VP if you want it as a route.

For myself I use the GPSr to create my track of where I've gone and will edit it in VP to save for later use. I'll usually use it as a track on the GPSr later instead of a route.

When I want to create a track on VP I use a 3rd party software to create a track and load it to VP.
But I will usually make a route on VP to transfer to the GPSr.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

First point: I don't see how to transform a route into track in VP... 🙁

On VP you can create a route and convert it to a track to load to the GPSr.

On VP right click on the track to edit it, bring it up on the map or play back.

Hi

I am a bit surprised but since now, any GPS SW I have used were able to let us create tracks (point after point)... In VP, I see that i can create route but I don't see any function to create track! sounds to me a big missing point.
In the same idea, I don't see any tools to edit tracks. For example, while back from a trip, I am used to take a look at the recorded track and to clean it a bit (remove spider points at the beginning/end typically).
May-be VP is only to transfer data and we have to use a 3rd party SW for anything else??
