1 Introduction
Thank you for purchasing TwoNav, the dual (for outdoor and in-car) GPS navigating system
that will help you enjoy the best assistance to orientate you in any type of environment while
carrying out any type of activity.
Having an appliance which offers directional assistance, both on-road and off-road, can prove
invaluable for increasing the safety of these journeys.
Despite this, there is the possibility that, under certain circumstances, the user may become
distracted by misuse of this technology, whereby it may in the end become a hazard to him or
her, and to his or her environment.
This possibility of using TwoNav in any type of vehicle makes it particularly important to
consider a series of rules and regulations for using it so, far from being a source of potential
risks, will contribute to personal safety.
Most of these recommendations are concerned with using the system fitted in vehicles,
although the bases of them should also be taken into account for journeys on foot.

Fitting the appliance correctly: The appliance should be fitted in a place where it will
not obstruct the vehicle driver‟s visibility of the road. It should additionally be secured, to
ensure it cannot fall off easily and hinder driving.

Do not handle the appliance whilst driving: The route planning should be completed
before setting out. Any change or clarification required must be made with the vehicle
stopped in a safe place, away from traffic (not on the road or kerbs).

When on the road, you should be guided by the sound signals: The program‟s
voice system will warn you of upcoming manoeuvres and of the distance to when you
will have to carry these out. A glance at the visual information may be useful, but you
should resort to this only if it can be done safely (with the vehicle appropriately
stopped). When driving, you should always keep your eyes on the road.

The front-seat passenger can be a great help: The navigator is normally facing the
driver. If you have a front-seat passenger, we recommend this person be in charge of
handling the appliance, making any clarifications or changes as required.

Getting it wrong is not a problem: Neither navigators nor people are infallible
machines. In the event an indication cannot be followed and a direction other than the
fixed one is taken, the system will automatically calculate a new route, which will adapt
to the new situation and will take you to your destination just the same.

Maps always contain errors: Despite the tremendous updating work done by Tele
Atlas, it is impossible to have 100% accurate information. Recent changes in correct
street directions, new streets or restrictions due to road works are examples of
circumstances that may partially invalidate the route calculation made by TwoNav. It is
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
very important to be alert to these changes and to adapt to the new situation. As soon
as the program detects that it has not been able to follow the preset route, it will
calculate a new one, which will take you to your destination just the same.

TwoNav assists you in navigation. Traffic regulations have always preference!
2 Maintenance
2.1
Battery Recharge
The TwoNav Sportiva Li-on battery is recharged via the USB port. It is normally fitted with 3
power sources:

AC/DC charger: Included in the TwoNav Sportiva kit.

PC: When connecting the device to a computer, besides allowing you to manage the
data present in the memory from the PC, the battery is also charged.

Charger for car lighter: Not included in the series.
You can operate normally while the TwoNav is connected to the power source, except if it is
connected to a PC.
While battery is charging, LED besides TwoNav logo will blink. When charge is complete it will
be continuously on.
Important: When unplugging the device from the power source, TwoNav will inform you of the
disconnection. If you do not answer the message within 30 minutes, the system will turn off in
order to avoid accidental discharges (you may deactivate this function form „Configuration >
System > Autonomy)
Warning: Avoid vibrations or rude movements on device while USB port is connected. It may
deform USB port, being reparation out of warranty. Do not re-charge battery while driving a
motorbike or any other vehicle which is causing vibrations.
2.2
Bumps and water
TwoNav Sportiva is a device prepared to resist the strain of an intensive use during the practice
of outdoor activities and, therefore, its performance must not be affected by exposure to small
bumps or to rain or splashing water.
However, in order to make the most of the system‟s performance it is advised, as far as
possible, to prevent the device from suffering serious bumps and that its permanent exposure to
dust or water.
The resistance to water is based on the correct attachment of the rubber covers that give
access to the slots and ports of the device. It is therefore important to check that these covers
are well sealed prior to beginning our activities.
Never soak the device in water, not even when all the covers are well sealed.
Avoid vibrations or rude movements on device while USB port is connected. It may deform USB
port, being reparation out of warranty.
Do not charge the battery during your motorbike trips. USB port would suffer deformation
which is not covered by warranty. See next section to know how to optimize autonomy.
CompeGPS Team S.L.

http://support.compegps.com
2.3
Autonomy
TwoNav Sportiva may operate around 6 consecutive hours with the screen ON with no need of
recharging the battery and up to 20 hours with the screen OFF and recording the track.
The screen uses an important part of the energy resources, so turning it off may make the life of
the device longer.
The screen of the device will be turned off by default after 1 minute of inactivity.
You may also turn the screen of manually by a sustained pressure on the „HOLD‟ button.
From “Main Menu > Configuration > System > Autonomy”, you may deactivate or modify this
time, as well as enter other options that may improve the autonomy of the device.
2.4
Connection to PC (storage unit)
When TwoNav Sportiva is connected to the PC by means of the USB wire, the device becomes
a “storage unit”. Two new storage units will then be shown on your PC:

Sportiva: inner memory of the device

Removable disk: Micro SD card that may be inserted into the device (not included).
This way you will be able to transfer data from the PC to the Sportiva and vice versa. Please
note that the folders to save data in the TwoNav Sportiva are:

Maps: TwoNavData\Maps

Data (Waypoints, routes and tracks): TwoNavData\Data
2.5
Using the electronic compass
TwoNav Sportiva is fitted with a digital compass so you have accurate information available on
the directions to follow even if you are stopped.
To be able to use the information supplied by the compass you must follow two steps:
1. Adjusting the compass: Go to „Main Menu > Configuration > System > Calibrate
Compass‟. Once inside the adjusting utility, move device rotating in several directions
place for a few seconds.
2. Go to „Main Menu > Configuration > Off-road > Bearing‟ and select „Automatic‟. This
way, the information coming from the compass will be considered when you are
stopped or driving very slowly (in these cases, the GPS information is less reliable to
determine orientation).
Note: Adjustments must be made outdoors and far from sources of alterations of the magnetic
field, such as cars, buildings or electric lines. For further safety, it is recommended to adjust the
compass prior to any outings.
2.6
Updating the software
The TwoNav software is continually being improved in order to add new functionalities and
polish possible errors.
TwoNav has to software levels:


TwoNav: Executed over the operating system and interacting with user.
Operating system: Executed under TwoNav and controlling the more basic operations
of the device.
CompeGPS Team S.L.

http://support.compegps.com
Normally, software updates are for TwoNav, but operating system can also have updates.
Visit regularly the TwoNav (www.twonav.com) and CompeGPS (www.compegps.com) web
pages to be regularly informed about the latest available version for your device and get to
know the steps to follow for installing it.

functions on the menu of each element on the specific sections for waypoints, routes,
tracks or maps.

Data fields: When opening the Contextual on the data fields (on the data bar or the
data pages) you will be able to modify the available fields, set an alarm or enter other
functions that may change depending on the field (reset, countdown, etc.). (+info)

Lists: The Contextual Menu may be opened to see the different actions to carry out on
any given element (waypoints, routes, tracks and maps) by clicking on its name from
the data lists.
3.5
Shifting over lists
TwoNav uses a system of lists on the various situations: data (tracks, waypoints, routes and
maps), data fields, contextual menus, etc.
A scroll system has been developed in order to facilitate the shifting through these lists, which
allows for the movement around the different options by dragging the pen or finger upwards or
downwards.
If you execute a brief shift, the last displayed element will become the first on the list.
If you execute a long shift, the list will keep scrolling down and it will stop at the end or by
pressing on the screen.

If you want to move along the lists in a more accurate way, you may use the side arrows to
achieve a more controlled movement.
3.6
Using MicroSD slot
TwoNav Sportiva allows to extend storage memory with a MicroSD card.
By default, MicroSD card data must be placed following the typical TwoNav data organization:


Maps: TwoNavData/Maps
Data (tracks, rutas, waypoints): TwoNavData/Data
If you don't create a TwoNavData/Maps folder and save your maps in it, they will not he shown
in TwoNav's maps list.
You can modify TwoNav's folders configuration to search for maps in other folders. Just go to
'Settings > System > Folders' and add a new maps folder or modify an existing one.
For example, you can choose MicroSD card root so any map in SD card will be read, no matter
in which folder it is.
Important: It is not possible to have the same map in two map folders at the same time. If you
install a mosaic map in MicroSD, be sure that the same map does not exist in internal memory.
Only one of them will be considered.
4 Settings
TwoNav is set by default so as to meet the needs of most users. However, it is important that
you spend some time analyzing which are the best options for the use you want to give to it and
to adapt it to the conditions in each moment.
4.1
On-road/Off-road Selector
TwoNav has two navigation modes: On-road and Off-road. You can clearly see the mode you
are on by looking at the colour of the users interface (green or grey). The functionalities of the
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
program also change in various aspects, which are generally explained in this section and are
detailed in other sections of this manual.
You may change the TwoNav navigation mode by pressing on the tabs on the top of the Main
menu:

Off-road
: The areas where open air activities are carried out do not usually have
usable information for the automatic calculation of the route, and therefore cartography
will only be useful as a visual reference. In order to have assistance for orientation you
will have to use positional references (waypoints, routes and tracks) that you can create
yourself or get from diverse sources, such as friends, web pages or Internet forums.
See sections „Waypoints, Routes and Tracks‟.

On-road
: It uses the information of the road maps (V-maps from CompeGPS) to
calculate automatically the route that we must follow to reach our destination. This route
will take into consideration the available roads and will give detailed orientation through
them using visual and voice indications. See sections „Automaps‟.
Important: On-road mode will only be available if you have a routable V-map present in
maps folder. Otherwise, On-road tab will be disabled.
Depending on the current mode, next features will change:



Options: You can have specific options configuration for On-Road and another one for
Off-Road. Not all options are profilable. Here you have the list of profilable options:
o In „Display‟ options:
 Automaps
 Orient (track up / North up)
 Autozoom
 Re-center
 Rotate screen
 Data fields
 Tool bar
 3D Reliefs options
 3D mode
 Scale bar
 Pointer options
 List menu
o In „System > Advanced‟ options:
 Static navigation
Data fields: Content of data bar and data pages is different to better fit the needs of
each use. A change in one mode will not affect the other, so you can configure a
specific set of data fields for On-Road and another one for Off-Road.
Tool bar: You can also configure a specific set of tools for each mode.
Menu: Availability and order of some functions will change. Check Navigate and
Navigation options sections.

2D/3D/3D+
TwoNav offers three visualizing modes so you have the most adequate perspective in each
moment.
 2D: Zenith Plan.
 3D: Three dimensional flat image, i.e. with no relief, but with a perspective.
 3D+: Displays the holography of the terrain in real 3D.
This mode will only be available if next requirements are met:
Press
o
Elevation map loaded (CDEM)
o
Raster map loaded (normally RMAP or ECW)
button in tools bar to change mode.
By default, this button has 2 positions:


2D
3D/3D+: TwoNav will try to show 3D+ mode. If not possible, 3D (flat) will be shown.
From 3D mode options you can configure this button to have 3 positions instead of 2:



2D
3D (flat)
3D+
Notes on 3D+:
1. Remember that it is required to have a raster map and an elevation map (CDEM).
Otherwise this mode will not work.
2. In „Off-road‟ mode, when trying to enter 3D+, an available CDEM in the area will be
sought and it will open automatically. In On-road mode, you will have to load the CDEM
manually.
3. Vectorial maps won‟t be displayed in 3D+ mode.

4.3
Data fields
TwoNav contains a multitude of data on your navigation that may be of great interest in your
outings (speed, height, distances...). This data is basically found in two spaces:
1. Data bar: The data bar will be displayed at the bottom of the screen during navigation.
You will be able to keep it visible or hide it by means of the
icon.
When navigating a route or a track, or just recording a track, graph will also be available
here and this button will have 3 states:



Data bar
Graph bar
Nothing
2. Data pages: The data pages offer you an additional space to the data bar in order to
display a larger number of fields in a more clear way. Press the
button to enter them.
TwoNav contains three pages of data that are displayed in order:
1. Data page: 8 data fields.
2. Compass page: a special field with an illustration of the compass and 6 data
fields.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
3. Graph page: It contains a special field with an altitude profile.
If you are navigating a route or a track, it will be shown with current position
marked by a vertical red line. You can zoom using buttons at top right.
If not navigating a route or a track, currently recorded track will be shown.
4 data fields related with altitude accompany the graph.
Both the data bar as the data pages can be set in order to show the field that interests you
most.
Besides, most of them have additional functions, such as an alarm programmer.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
Data fields are configurable to have a different set for On-Road or Off-Road. Changes made in
one mode will not affect the other.
4.3.1
Selection of the data fields
You can select data fields in two ways:


Change just one field: By opening the contextual menu in any field (long click) and
selecting
„Change
this
field‟.
This will let you choose directly the data to display in that field.
Data field manager: From „Main Menu > Settings > Display > Data fields‟. Check the
section „Fields‟ for a more detailed description of the functionalities of this editor.
You can find the list of the available fields in appendix 1
4.3.2
Special Functions
When opening a contextual menu on a data field, you will find the available functions associated
to this field.
The options are not the same in all fields. Here follows a description of the ones you may find:
1. Data Fields: Enters the editor of the available fields.
2. Don‟t show this field: Eliminates a datum immediately.
3. Program alarm: Define a higher or lower limit as the type of signal (visual or audible) to
let you know when exiting this range. In case an audible signal is added, you must
choose the sound file you wish to be reproduced.
4. Reset: Typically, you may find it in fields such as the travelled distance meter
(odometer) o chronometer. They reset the counter to 0.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
5. Reset all: Resets all data fields that can be reset except total odometer 1 and 2.
6. Countdown: You may define the value from which units of distance and time will keep
being subtracted (according to field) until reaching 0.
7. Compass calibration: Direct access to the digital compass calibration.
8. Barometer calibration: Direct access to the digital barometer calibration.
4.4
Record the track
You may choose if you want to keep saving your present trip in a track or not.
Go to the Status window and press the „record‟ key so your movements are added to the
currently recorded track.
By pressing the Pause key, the positions stop being recorded until you press „record‟ once
more.
The track being currently recorded will go first place on the track list and its name will be the
present date.
You can configure accuracy level of recorded track from tracklog options (+info).
4.5
Favourites
Besides the possibility of creating geo-referenced points (waypoints), TwoNav also has the
possibility of setting up all types of geographical locations, such as Favourites points to which
navigate. Your home, a restaurant you like, a spectacular park you have visited, your children‟s
school …, may become part of your favourites list.
You may enter to set up your Favourites from the main menu:
The Favourites list is not set by default, so you have to set it up yourself introducing the
elements to make up this list. Therefore, the first time you enter Favourites, you will find the
following screen:
CompeGPS Team S.L.

Automaps
„Menu > Settings > Display > Automaps‟
The easiest way to use the most suitable map for each situation is to activate the function
„Automaps‟, so in „On-road‟ mode the Vmap road map will open automatically and in „Off-road‟
mode it will close and the map with the best resolution for our present position will open.
The „Automaps‟ option is off when a cross is displayed on the icon:
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
It is recommended to have the Automaps option always on, and more especially on those
instances in which you need to make a change in navigation mode during the route. For
example, if you switch from Off-road mode to On-road mode and „Automaps‟ is not on, it will
mean that the new On-road route won‟t be properly calculated and the Off-road mode will still
be displayed on the screen in spite of having the most suitable map for each navigation mode.
Check the section „Maps‟ for further information.
4.6.3
Orientate map
„Main menu > Settings > Display > Orientate map‟
You may choose between two display modes for the elements loaded on the map window:

Orientate map towards
course (track upwards): The map will rotate to adapt to your
present course, and so the perspective in front of you will be displayed on the screen.

No orientate the map
(north upwards): Your position will be marked with the pointer
in the centre of the screen and the pointer will rotate to show your present course. The
map won‟t rotate and the North will always be upwards.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
You may modify this option from the button bar on the navigation window or from the „display‟
menu.
4.6.4
Auto zoom
“Main menu > Settings > Display > Auto zoom”
If the Auto zoom mode is active, the program will calculate the most suitable zoom for the
present speed. Generally, the higher the speed, the further it will go.
Note: „Auto zoom‟ is only active in On-road mode, as topographic maps used in Off-road mode
may have different resolutions among them and it is not possible to define an automatic zoom
that shows all of them properly.
4.6.5
Night view
„Main menu > Settings > Display > Night View‟
In low ambience light conditions, the colours and brightness of the TwoNav screen may dazzle
you.
TwoNav contains a „night mode‟ that reduces the brightness of the screen and displays a user
interface of darker tones.
By activating the „At night and tunnels‟ option, TwoNav changes to „night mode‟ automatically at
night or when inside a tunnel.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
The option „At night‟ makes it automatic but only for night and not for tunnels.
If „automatic‟ is off, you will be able to select manually if you wish to have the night mode on or
not.
Note: TwoNav always keeps the time updated as long as the device receives the GPS signal.
Usually, inside buildings, there is no reception of satellite signals and so, automatic „Night View‟
may be affected.
4.6.6
Re-centring
„Main Menu > Settings > Display > Re-center‟
While navigating you may move the map to see other parts of the grounds, losing the reference
of your present position. In these cases, a re-centring button
screen.
will be displayed on the
TwoNav contains an automatic re-centring function, so if the map is not moved manually for 10
seconds, it will centre back to its present position.
The time for re-centring may be modified and even turn it off, leaving the option of pressing the
re-centring button to go back to your position.
Re-centring can be performed with a smooth movement or instantaneously. Enable or disable
„smooth re-centre‟ option as you prefer.
Note: If the function „auto zoom‟ is activated, when pressing re-centring, the zoom suitable for
your present speed will also return, losing then the variation of the zoom level you may have
done.
4.6.7
Data Fields
„Main Menu > Settings > Display > Data Fields‟
Once inside the editor, take the following steps:
1. Press on the „Type‟ pull-down menu to
choose the section to be set.
2. Select the space you wish to edit (bar,
page, compass o graph).
Each space includes information related
to its title. This way, on the compass
page, we can find all the data concerning
the bearing and on the graph page, all the
data concerning altitude (slope, altitude,
climb to destination...) among others.
The data page manages all generic data,
such as time, sunset, chronometer, etc.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
The data bar manages the elements
displayed at the bottom of the page during
navigation.
3. You may delete data by pressing on the
left „check‟ mark and add other data by
pressing on them. See a list of these
variables and their meaning in Appendix
1.
4. On the compass and graph pages, a
squared icon on the side shows the place
corresponding to the enhanced field
(normally compass and track graph) that
will be enlarged on the screen.
You may place another element in the
enhance field by moving the order of the
fields.
On the compass page, the central position
corresponds to the fifth element and on
the graph page to the third.
5. You may modify the order of the data on
screen with the arrows on the right of the
window and they will shift the datum up or
down one position.
Note: By default, only fields of frequent use

3D Reliefs
„Main menu > Settings > Off-road > 3D Reliefs‟
TwoNav may use elevation maps (point meshes with information on the height of the ground) to
have the altitude data on the references created with the program (e.g. tracks, waypoints, etc.)
to habilitate the visualizing mode 3D+ (3D real).
Besides remaining subjacent and supply the ground altitude data, the 3D relieves may be seen
with the following options:

Draw landscapes on the 2D view: It will be seen if a CDEM is loaded, although it
will take position in the lowest layer so any other loaded map will be displayed on
top.

Draw landscape with shadow: This visual option makes the relief drawing more
attractive.

Flat colour steps: Instead of using a fading colour, just one plain colour for each
height interval will be used. This interval can be preset from the unfolding menu just
below.
4.6.10 3D mode

3D+ mode will only be shown if its requirements are met (see 2D/3D/3D+ section)

Altitude exaggeration: Multiplies the altitude of the relief to make a clearer effect in 3D+.

Shading: This option will cause the relief to be displayed in a clearer and attractive way,
as it features shadow simulations enhancing thus the variations of the grounds. This
option is only effective on the 3D+

Field of vision: the field of vision determines the angle from which the map will be seen.
When introducing angles over 60º, it is like a camera with wide lenses.

Misty horizon: the furthest part to the perspective becomes faded, creating a misty
effect between the sky and the map that distinguishes them more clearly.

Set a speed limit: the speed limit of each particular road will be considered by default,
but you can set a fixed speed limit disregards the limit of each road.

Speed warning: If you wish TwoNav to let you know when you drive over the established
speed limit, you may choose among the different alert types, such as a speed limit icon, a
visual alert or a visual alert plus an audible alert, or on the contrary, choose that it does
not inform of it.

Radar alert: You may select if you wish to be informed of the presence of radars on your
route by activating this option.

Radar distance alert: You may select the distance at which you wish to be informed of
the presence of a radar within some preset values.

Show radars: The exact position of all radars will be indicated by means of an icon on

Note: For all the radar related functions to be operative you must have a file with this information
in „TwoNavData > Radars‟ (+info).
4.8.4
Ecocalculator
“Main Menu > Settings > Navigation > Ecocalculator”
The Ecocalculator lets you know the CO2 emissions of your car and show it after the Data Bar
(Datafields) during navigation if preset. To be able to calculate this emission, TwoNav considers
the following parameters:

Type of fuel: choose if the fuel is diesel or gasoline and introduce directly the emission
per grams of CO2 per kilometre of your vehicle if you know this data.

Administrative Power: engine power (CV), choosing among the preset options shown.
4.8.5
Smoother
“Main Menu > Settings > Navigation > Smoother”
The smoother lets the program calculate an interpolation of movement between the positions that
the GPS adopts with the aim of showing a gentler movement to allow for a better perception of
the speed at which we are driving in relation with the surroundings. This helps enormously the
driver to calculate the distances and the exact moment in which to carry out a manoeuvre.
Besides, it also makes a prediction of GPS position, correcting delay on the signal caused by the
system, achieving to show current position almost in real time.
Smoother is based on route calculated in On-Road mode, so it will only work if a destination is set
and route has been automatically calculated on V-map.

While navigating, TwoNav may automatically record the track of your departure and save it in the
TwoNavData folder.
Set up according to your needs or preferences:

Recording interval: Choose the type of recording and interval you wish for the track to
be generated for your navigation.
o
By time: The point of each track will be recorder every X seconds.
o
By distance: The point of each track will be recorder every X meters.
o
Automatic: the track will be automatically recorded when changing course and
depending on speed. In a straight line, the program will record few points.

Track colour*: Choose the colour for the generated track.

Thickness*: Choose the thickness of the line representing the track between values of 1
to 7 points.

Points shown without reduction*: The recorded track will be visible on the screen.
Latest points will be shown as they are recorded (no reduction). You can choose how
long will be this latest section of the track which will show all of its track points.

Reduction for previous points*: In order to save memory, it is recommended to make a
reduction of the rest of the shown track. Choose a reduction % and the shown track
(except the latest points) will be reduced. For example, if you choose 80% reduction, only
1 of every 5 points will be shown on screen.
Important: This reduction does not affect the recorded track file, which will keep all
points. Only concerns to what is displayed on screen at that moment.
* Option only shown if „advanced mode‟ is activated.
4.8.7
WPT alert
“Main menu > Settings > Navigation > WPT Alert”
Activate this option if you wish that, when reaching a waypoint, a sound is heard. Load your SD
card (folder: „TwoNavData/Data‟ by default) the sounds that you want in *wav format and select
the sound.
4.8.8
Next WPT
“Main menu > Settings > Navigation > Next WPT”
When navigating a route, you can select the required event to validate a waypoint and switch to
next one:





Radius of the next WPT: Enter inside the radius of the next waypoint (not any).
Radius of any next WPT: Enter inside the radius of any of the next waypoint (next one
and any of the succeeding ones are OK but not the previous).
Roadbook mode: When entering the radius of any waypoint, it will be set as next. When
going out of it, next one will be activated. This mode is thought for roadbooks, because
when following a roadbook it is required to show the information of the current waypoint
while in its surroundings. This way, instructions for each point can be followed correctly.
Bisector inside next WPT: Enter inside the radius of next waypoint and cross the bisector
that is formed with the previous and the next.
Bisector inside next WPT or 10% of the radius of any WPT: Same as the previous, but if
any waypoint is very near (10% of its radius) it will be validated and the next one will be
activated.
CompeGPS Team S.L.

http://support.compegps.com

Only buttons bar: Never will automatically change to next waypoint, only manually with
'NextWPT' and 'PreviousWPT' buttons at buttons bar.
Also from this options section, a default radius can be assigned for route waypoints, which will be
taken when this information is not available. It means, if we defined a radius for a concrete
waypoint of the route, it will be respected. But if it doesn't have radius the default one will be
used.
4.8.9
Altitude
„Main Menu > Settings > Navigation > Altitude‟
TwoNav features three altitude data obtained in different ways:

Altitude: this is the data shown in the „altitude‟ field of the data bar, on the graph page
and to which the points recorded by the track along the itinerary are kept.

GPS Altitude: Direct reading from the GPS.

Barometric altitude: Reading from the barometric altimeter of the device.
Note: Although the data shown by default is the generic „Altitude‟, the data bar and the data
pages can be preset so besides the generic „altitude‟ they also show the GPS or the barometric
altitude (see Fields section).
The generic „Altitude‟ data can be preset so it observes different values depending on your
preferences. From „Menu > Settings > Off-road > Altitude‟ you will be able to select among the
following options:

GPS: The values from the GPS will be directly taken.

Barometric altimeter: The data from this utility will be taken disregards the GPS.
It is important to calibrate the barometer in order to achieve reliable data. You may
calibrate the barometer in 2 ways:
o
Manual calibration tool: If you know the present altitude, you can enter it into the
TwoNav from „Menu > Settings > Off-road > Calibrate barometer‟.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
o
Automatic calibration tool: If you select the „Automatic‟ option in the „altitude‟
selector menu, TwoNav will continuously calibrate the barometric altimeter using
the GPS position along time (see following point).
If after some time you select „Barometric altimeter‟, the introduced calibration will
be saved with the „automatic‟ option, but it won‟t be updated with the new GPS
measurements.

Automatic (recommended): the barometric altitude will be used, but the barometer will
be automatically calibrated using the altitude data from the GPS by means of an
algorithm that optimizes the final result.
This is the recommended option for most users, as it minimizes the characteristic error of the
altitude data from the GPS and, at the same time it overcomes the limitations of the barometric
altimeter regarding atmospheric pressure and temperature, alien to altitude changes.
4.8.10 Bearing
„Main Menu > Settings > Navigation > Bearing‟
The „Bearing‟ data determines the orientation of the map when „orientate map‟ (track up) is
enabled. (see „orientate map‟ section).
TwoNav has three different ways of determining the bearing you are taking during navigation:

GPS: The latest positions received from the GPS to calculate the bearing of our present
movement will be considered. As soon as we stop, this reference won‟t be reliable, as
there will be no movement it can refer to.

Compass: The data taken from the electronic compass will be taken in order to
determine the orientation of the device.

Automatic (recommended): When driving slowly the compass data will be taken. When
driving fast the GPS position will be used.
Note: Remember to calibrate the compass to get reliable data from it.
4.9
4.9.1
System
Volume
„Main Menu > Settings > System > Volume‟.
On this page you will find the following settable elements:

Silence: By activating this option, all the sounds from the device will be turned off,
independently of the volume percentage set for every option.

General: Regulate the general volume for the audible elements group. All the sounds are
regulated by the preset of this option.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com

Voice: Regulate the volume of the alert voices for the next manoeuvre.

Alarm: Regulate the volume of the alarms and radar warnings, speed limits and arrival at
waypoints.

Clicks: Regulate the volume of pulses on the touch screen or buttons.
4.9.2
Brightness
‟ from „Main Menu > Settings > System > Brightness‟
Regulate the amount of light you wish the screen to have and adjust it to each situation. The
higher the percentage of brightness is the more highlighted will the contents be.
In night mode, the brightness will be automatically reduced to avoid dazzling.
4.9.3
Autonomy
„Main Menu > Settings > System > Autonomy‟
In this section you will find utilities that will help you maximize the autonomy of the system:

„Shutdown screen‟: determine a time after which the screen will automatically turn off *.
Select „never‟ to activate this function.
*Note: The option „Turn screen off after‟ won‟t work if the device is connected to an
external power source and „car‟ has been selected as vehicle.

„Shutdown backlight‟: Just backlight will be turned off, so screen will still be on. Shutting
down screen saves more energy than shutting down only backlight.

„Disconnect GPS at stops‟: it will detect a stop in your itinerary and will disconnect the
GPS. A message will then appear asking if you wish to activate the GPS again. It is
important to say yes to this message when setting out again.

Protection against accidental unplugging: To prevent the device from discharging if it is
disconnected accidentally from the power source (engine turned off, automatic turning off
of the PC, etc.), TwoNav detects the unplugging and an alert message appears. If you
don‟t answer the message, after half an hour, the system will go off .

4.9.4
Language
“Main Menu > Settings > System > Language”.
You may modify the language of the texts and voices of the system from this section.
Note: The conversion of the voices may take more than one minute.
4.9.5
Calibrate screen
„Main Menu > Settings > System > Calibrate Screen‟
The option „Calibrate screen‟ lets you correct all the little maladjustments that the touch screen
may have, that is to say, that you press on one spot and the reactions does not appear on this
concrete spot, but a little misplaced.
When calibrating the screen, the following instructions message will be displayed:
“Press and briefly hold stylus on the center of the screen and repeat as the target moves around
the screen. Press Esc to cancel”
Click briefly with the stylus on the centre of the cross and repeat as the objective moves across
the screen.
Once the new screen calibration is done, the following message will be displayed:
“New calibration settings have been measured. Press Enter key to accept the new setting. Press
the Esc key to keep the old settings”
Press on the screen to end calibration.
4.9.6
Barometer calibration
„Main menu > Settings > Off-road > Calibrate Barometer‟
The errors on the setting of the pressure may cause wrong readings of the altitude.
By default, the barometer will be calibrated automatically by means of the altitude data supplied
by the GPS using an algorithm that will optimize its function.
If you wish, you may calibrate the barometric altimeter manually from „Main Menu > Settings >
Off-road > Barometer Calibration‟ introducing the present altitude with the keypad that will be
displayed when pressing this option.
In order for this manual calibration not to be altered by the automatic calibration process, you
must set TwoNav to take the altitude by only taking the barometer reading.
4.9.7
Compass calibration
„Main Menu > Settings > Off-road > Compass Calibration‟
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
Calibration is a necessary procedure for the directions supplied by the electronic compass to be
correct.
It is an instrument very sensitive to weather and magnetic fields changes, so it has to be recalibrated each time it is going to be used in a new area.
Calibration must be carried out in the open air and far from sources of alterations of the magnetic
fields, such as cars, buildings or electric lines.
For more safety, it is recommended to calibrate the compass before each outing.
Once inside the calibration utility, all you have to do is rotate the device in the 3 axes until
compass is calibrated.
4.9.8
Folders
„Main Menu > Settings > System > Folders‟
In order for your data (maps, waypoints routes and tracks) to be considered by TwoNav when
creating lists in the „data‟ section, they have to be inside the folder you have created for this
purpose.
You may define one or more folders for maps (then, the maps of all folders will be included in this
map list) and a folder for data (waypoints, routes and tracks).
The folder for maps by default is „TwoNavData/maps‟.
The folder by default for the rest of data (waypoints, routes and tracks) is „TwoNavData/Data‟.
If there are any other folders inside the one you have selected, they will also be shown in the data
list.
For example, if we create a folder called „Pyrenees routes‟ inside „TwoNavData/Data‟, and
„TwoNavData/Data‟ is set as the only routes, waypoints and tracks folder, we will have the
following representation in the routes list:

„Main menu > Settings > System > Coordinates‟
You may choose the type of coordinates (UTM, Latitude/Longitude, BGN…) and datum (WGS 84,
European 1950, Geodetic Datum 1949, etc.) with which you wish to work in TwoNav.
This setting will be the one used when introducing any coordinate into the program or when
creating elements the kind of waypoints routes or tracks.
If an element (map, waypoint, route or track) that uses a system of coordinates of different a
datum is opened, TwoNav will detect it and will place it in the correct position.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
Besides, from this option, you may configure the order in which the degrees will be displayed.
By default, TwoNav Works with Lat / Long and Datum WGS84 Coordinates.
4.9.11 Time zone
„Main menu > Settings > System > Time zone‟
TwoNav lets you choose the time it is according to the Universal Time Coordinates (UTC) that will
appear by default with the time-zone corresponding to the Central European Time (CET).
You may also set the Summer Time automatically if you wish, so TwoNav carries out the
seasonal time change.
Note: TwoNav keeps the time updated as long as the device receives a GPS signal. Usually,
inside the buildings, the signal from the satellites is not received unless there is a repeater, so the
time and also the, night vision, will be affected.
4.9.12 Default settings
„Main menu > Settings > System > Default settings‟
This option lets you re-establish all the settable parameters to its initial status. All the options that
have been manipulated will be modified, time zone, volume, folders and other tools that you may
have previously established.
4.9.13 Update OS
„Main menu > Settings > System > Update OS‟
When an Operating System update is available at www.compegps.com or www.twonav.com , you
will have to use this button to complete the update in your device.
See instructions in web download area to know the exact steps to follow.
4.9.14 Device ID
„Main menu > Settings > System > Device ID‟
The „Device ID‟ is an alphanumeric identifier exclusive to your device. This identifier is necessary
in order to activate TwoNav and any map you want to use in the device.
4.9.15 About
„Main Menu > Settings > System > About‟
„About‟ shows you which TwoNav version the device is working with. It will be displayed on the
top left hand corner of the screen.
To know the version of the TwoNav program installed in your device, it is very important to check
out doubts or software updating.
4.9.16 Advanced
„Main Menu > Settings > System > Advanced‟
TwoNav has and „advanced mode‟ which enables some extra functions that are not frequently
used and could add unnecessary complexity to the system.
You can enable „advanced mode‟ entering „Settings > System > Advanced‟ section. Then some

6 Following indications
Once the destination is selected, TwoNav will assist you in reaching it.
TwoNav offers two navigation ways that will allow you to adapt to each surroundings in the best
possible modes:
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
On Road
: Door to door navigation on
the CompeGPS V-maps cartographic basis,
enjoying the characteristic assistance type of
the urban navigators. The route will be
automatically calculated through the streets
and along the itinerary accurate visual and
aural indications will be given on the
manoeuvres to carry out.
Important: On-road mode will only be
available if you have a routable V-map
present in maps folder. Otherwise, On-road
tab will be disabled.
Off Road
: It can be used on any type
of map (topographic, orthophoto, vectored
graph) and it is based on the use of
previously created references (waypoints,
routes and tracks). The route won‟t be
calculated automatically and a straight line
will link our present position to our
destination.
Within the same itinerary, some changes in the mode may be necessary (e.g. if we set out from
the city and reach a point far from it in which there is no usable information on the streets). In
these cases you may change the mode depending on the information of available maps.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
6.1
On-road Navigation
The information offered by this navigation mode is more than in Off-road mode, as all the
information contained in the V-maps cartographic data base is used to show accurate indications
of the next manoeuvres.
Besides, audible signals are given in order not to get distracted from the traffic.
Important: On-road mode will only be available if you have a routable V-map present in maps
folder. Otherwise, On-road tab will be disabled.
6.1.1
Visual information
1. Distance to next event: Distance left to next event (roundabout, waypoint, exit...).
2. Next manoeuvre: When navigating On-road, the „next event‟ space will display a
representation of the next manoeuvre to be done (right turn, left turn, roundabout,
diversion, etc.).
3. Next Street: Indicates the next street to be taken following navigation.
4. POI: V- map point of interest (petrol station, hotel, cash point, etc).
5. Calculated Route: Shows the automatically calculated route to be followed.
6. Manoeuvre indication: Illustrates the manoeuvres to be carried out on the map and
more accurately.
7. Speed limit of present road: Indicates the legal speed limit of the road on which we are.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
8. Present Street: Name of the street where you are.
When pressing on an element of the map (for instance a Chemist‟s) a yellow square will appear
indicating the name of this element plus some other interesting information. This way, you may
also check the names of the streets in the area.
See the On screen section for complete information on the elements present on the navigation
screen.
6.2
Off-road navigation
In Off-road mode, the information on streets and roads will not be available for the route to be
calculated automatically and to tell you the next manoeuvres with precision. The automatic
information will be limited to a straight line, which will join your current position with your
destination.
Because of this, you will need to pay special attention to the information on the underlying map
you have loaded. This situation is comparable to conventional navigation with a topographical
map, with the advantage that your current position is marked on the map.
The degree of detail of the available information can be enhanced if you prepare the journey in
advance, finding reference points (waypoints, routes and tracks) that will help to guide you.
A well planned route, with the appropriate information and file attachments on each waypoint, can
be equivalent to a route calculated automatically in On-road mode.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
See the Waypoints, Routes and Tracks section for further information on these elements.
6.2.1
Visual information
1. GOTO arrow: Direction on which the next waypoint is. When following a track, it will
indicate its direction (see Off-road navigation).
2. Track name / Next Waypoint: Name of the next waypoint or the track being followed.
3. Loaded route
4. Loaded Track
5. Next waypoint
6. Guide line (waypoint direction/track): Joins your present position to the place you are
heading for (track or next waypoint)
7. Currently Recorded Track: If the present track is being recorded, we can see its trace
marks behind us.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
8. Compass: Shows the orientation of the device. The source of this datum may be set
(GPS, electronic compass or „automatic‟) from „menu > Settings > Off-road > Bearing‟.
7 Radar warnings / POIs
During your navigation, TwoNav may alert you when you get close to certain points of special
interest.
7.1.1
Radars
One special case of these types of points is the radars that control traffic speed.
TwoNav will consider the points introduced in the „TwoNavData\Radars‟ folder as radars and will
alert you with a sound and an image when you get close to one of them (see section Speed limit
to get to know the setting options of these warnings).
The system includes a radars data base from the AlerteGPS company that may be updated from
their web page, www.alerteGPS.com. In it you will find a section devoted to TwoNav products.
If you wish to update this information, all you have to do is substitute the original files by the
updated ones (in GPX, WPT or BWPT formats) into the „radars‟ folder kept in the
„TwoNavData\Radars‟ data folder.
7.1.2
POIs
You may also be alerted of other general interest points (POIs) that you may customize yourself.
TwoNav will load automatically the waypoints (in GPX, WPT or BWPT format) that you place
inside the „TwoNavData\POI‟ folder when starting up the system. These waypoints will not be
displayed in the waypoints list, but they will be drawn on the map.
You can hide these files on map from active personal POIs tool.
BWPT format is recommended, allowing a much quicker access to information. Files in other
formats can be converted to BWPT from CompeGPS Land PC software.
If you want to be alerted when reaching one of these POIs, each one of them will have to be
associated to a sound or image file, which will be reproduced when getting close to the point.
You may associate images or sounds in WAV format to the waypoints from the properties of the
waypoint window.
Warning: Using BWPT files with more than 5000 points may cause system slow down. GPX or
WPT files may cause such slow down even with much smaller files.
8 Data management (waypoints, routes, tracks and maps)
8.1
8.1.1
Waypoints
What is a waypoint?
The waypoint is a point defined by a geographical position, latitude and longitude coordinates and
in most cases altitude, used by the GPS navigation tools.
TwoNav lets you create, edit and navigate waypoints.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
The waypoints are kept inside waypoints files (usually in .WPT format), so a waypoint folder may
contain just one or more waypoints.
They are represented on screen as points to which a name or an icon may be applied.
refuge
8.1.2
Supported formats
TwoNav can open directly next waypoint formats:




*.WPT
*.BWPT
*.LOC
*.GPX
More waypoint formats can be imported and converted to these ones from CompeGPS Land/Air.
8.1.3
Waypoints list
“Main menu > Data > Waypoints”
The management of waypoints is centralized on the waypoints list, but it is also possible to carry
out many actions directly from the navigation screen by means of the contextual menu.
When entering the waypoints lists, you will be able to see all the waypoints files available in the
„TwoNavData/Data‟ folder.
See the Data section to get to know the general operation of the lists.
If you have selected a waypoints file, the buttons on the bottom of the screen will let you enter the
most important functions to carry out on this element:
In order:

Create a new waypoints file: It will generate and open an empty waypoints file.

Create a new waypoint.

Zoom here

Save
If you have selected a specific waypoint from the waypoints file, the buttons will change to adapt
to the functionalities of the selected element:
In order:


Enter the properties of the waypoint window

Create a new waypoint within the waypoints file in which the selected waypoint is.

Zoom here

Navigate
By a long click on any open Waypoints file or on a specific Waypoint, you will enter the
Contextual Menu with all the available functions for this element.
8.1.4
8.1.4.1
Open and close
Open waypoints file
From the waypoints list, clicking on the name of one of its available files, it will open. You will
know it is open because it will be visible at the top of the list with the left square marked
8.1.4.2
.
Close waypoints file
Press on the left check mark
of the open waypoints file in order to close it.
The file will move from the first places on the list and will go back to its alphabetical
corresponding position with the other unloaded waypoints files.
You may also enter this function from the contextual menu from where you may also delete files
from the memory permanently.
8.1.5
8.1.5.1
Create and edit
Create waypoints
All the waypoints must be contained in a waypoints file. Whenever you create a waypoint, it will
be added to the waypoints file that you have loaded on the first place (and will take the first place
on the data list).
If there are no waypoints files loaded, when creating a waypoint, a new one will be automatically
created.
You may also create a waypoints file manually from the waypoints list.
A waypoint can be created in the following ways:
8.1.5.1.1
Create a waypoint in the present position
You may create a waypoint quickly in the exact position where you are.
There are two functions to do this:

Mark WPT: No access to waypoint properties. Default name and icon will be used.
Waypoint properties can be accessed later.

Mark and edit WPT: Waypoint properties will be automatically opened allowing to modify
its information.
A waypoint will be created inside the waypoints file you have previously opened * (the first on the
„data‟ list)
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com

Routes
What is a route?
A route is a group of waypoints ordered in a predetermined way. It is a way of navigating that
allows for planning a course from one place to another going through various waypoints. The
routes are used when it is not possible to reach a place in a direct way (in straight line). The route
file will be saved in the *rte format.
TwoNav allows you to create routes and navigate them. It also lets you modify many of its
parameters. For further information, see Edit a route.

Tracks
What is a track?
A track is a group of points ordered by time, where each point contains information on the
position, time and date, coordinates and, in most cases, altitudes.
Tracks can be split into 2 and 3 dimensional ones, depending on whether they have or not the
altitudes of the track points. For further information, check Track tools.
Whenever we save the tracks in TwoNav, besides the track points, a series of data is saved that
can be modified or inserted from the device, such as the name of the track, remarks, colour of
display, among others. For further information check Track properties.
8.3.2
Supported formats
TwoNav can open directly next track formats:




*.TRK
*.IGC
*.PLT
*.GPX
More track formats can be imported and converted to these ones from CompeGPS Land/Air.
8.3.3
Record a track while navigating
During navigation, TwoNav will record the track of your outing.
This recording will be saved by default in the „TwoNavData/Data‟ folder in *TRK format with a
name based on the date, (YYYY-MM-DD)*.
You may check if track points are being recorded from the „Status‟ page.

By pressing the „record‟ button, the track points will be saved.

By pressing the „pause‟ button, the track points won‟t be saved.
If you pause the track recording and retake it later, the points that open after the pause will be
part of the same track leg. This means that there will only be an open track, but made up of the
different legs (+info on legs).
If you wish to save the track that is currently being recorded and go on recording into a new file,
all you have to do is close the track currently open. Once closed, a new track will be automatically
created in which the new track points will be recorded.
You may set the recording parameters from „Main menu > Settings > Off-road >Tracklog‟ (+info).
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
*Note: If, in the same day, you have made more than one track, the names will be distinguished
by a number at the end that identifies the order in which they were created, (e.g. 2008-12-1501.TRK, 2008-12-15-02.TRK, …).
You may rename both the tracks previously saved as the track currently being recorded by using
the track properties or save as.

In order to modify the coordinates of a track point, all you have to do is enter its properties
window and introduce the new value, checking that the datum and projection are correct.
8.3.6.3
Track legs
TwoNav allows you to work with tracks fractioned in legs.
8.3.6.3.1
8.3.6.3.1.1
Create legs
Create legs on an existing track
You may split the track in two legs by opening the contextual menu on the point that divides the
two selected legs „legs > Change leg here‟.
In this moment, the leg closer to the end of the track will change colour to highlight the difference
between the two legs. The initial leg will remain the original colour of the track.
You may repeat this operation as many times as you want in order to get the amount of tracks
you need.
8.3.6.3.1.2
Create new legs on the present track
If during the recording of the present track you activate a pause from the status window, when
starting recording again, the new points will keep being recorded in the same file as before the
pause, but a new leg with the new points will be generated automatically. This way, you will be
able to make out easily the parts of the present leg and apply independent modifications on them.
If there is a distance from the moment you paused the recording of the track until you activated it
again, the empty space passed in this time will be visible on its display.

8.3.6.3.2
Operations with legs
If you open the contextual menu on a leg of the track in the navigation window from the „legs‟
option, you will be able to enter the following functions:

Leg properties: You may change the colour and thickness of the leg and add a note.

Change leg (+info)

Delete this leg: the points of this leg will be deleted from the track, leaving an empty
space in its place.

Save track as: You may save the track independently from the rest of the track. This
way, a new track file will be created with just this leg.
8.3.6.4
Reverse track
Any track can be reversed so the order of its points is the opposite. This can be especially useful
if you have run a distance recording the track as you go and then you wish to go back along the
same way.
To reverse the track, all you have to do is open the contextual menu on it from the track list and
select „Tools > Reverse track‟.
8.3.6.5
Advanced track tools
From the track contextual menu in the tracks list, you can enter the „Tools‟ submenu, which
includes highly interesting secondary tools for concrete needs:

Calculate the altitude of the ground of each point (Import altitudes): If you have 3D
relief (CDEM) loaded, TwoNav may assign each point of the track its altitude considering
the information of the relief.

Delete stopped points from the beginning and the end (Del.strt/end points): The
track omits the repetitive points from the beginning and the end, where you were stopped
before and after making the track.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com

Reduce the number of points (Reduce num. points): By introducing the number of
points, the track is drawn with the points keeping the shape of the track in the most
possible faithful manner.

Assign time and speed (Assign time/speed): By using this option you may determine a
time for departure and a constant speed so TwoNav calculates the estimated time of
arrival to each point in the track.
If a track does not contain time data, you cannot enter the play function of its contextual menu.

Delete the aberrant points (Del. aberrant points): In case a point diverts excessively
from the rest, it will be considered an error and deleted.

Change the track into a route (Convert TRK to RTE): This option will change the track
into a route. The program will ask you to introduce the number of waypoints you want the
route to have. The new file of the route will be displayed on the „Main Menu > Data>
Routes‟.

Invert track: This function reverses the sense of the itinerary of the track, so if you
decide to navigate it, it will be in reverse sense.
8.3.6.6
8.3.6.6.1
Save
Save track
When you are satisfied with your track, you may save it by selecting the option Save track from
the contextual menu of the track or track list.
The modifications that you have made will be directly saved overwriting the old file.
Note: The track being recorded as you go is saved automatically every 5 minutes. When closing
the system, a final saving of the present track will be saved.
8.3.6.6.2
Save track as
If you wish to save the track under another name, location (folder) or format (*.TRK, *.IGC or
*.GPX) you may select the option „Save track as‟ from the contextual menu of the track in the
tracks lists.
8.3.7

Properties
Track properties
The different data on a loaded track can be consulted (distance, area it encloses, maximum
altitude, etc.) and modify some of its parameters (colour, thickness, description…) from the
properties window of the track.
You may enter this window in 3 ways:

Direct button
: brief click on the name of the track on the List and then press the
button at the bottom of the list.

Contextual menu of track in the list

Contextual menu of the track in the map
Once inside it, you will be able to modify some parameters of the track and consult a great variety
of data grouped by sections:
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com

General: Name of file (you may also change the track name from the contextual menu of
the tracks list or by „save as‟), User name, Outing name, Notes on track.

Date and time: Day, Departure time (first track point), Arrival time (last track point),
Duration, Difference between local time and UTC (more or less hours in regards to GMT),
Time stopped, Time moving.

Track points: Number of points, Recording intervals (this value can be set from „Main
Menu > Settings > Off-road > Tracklog‟), Extra data fields (additional data that the tracks
have besides the coordinates, altitude and time).

See: Thickness, real width of track and colour of the track line.

GPS: GPS model, series number and if the track features a digital signature.

Distances: Projected distance (it is the distance that has been covered on the horizontal,
disregards the distance covered in altitude), Distance with altitudes (the real distance
covered by outlining the orography of the ground), linear distance (distance on a straight
line between the first and the last point of the track), Area (surface enclosed by the track).
This last datum is achieved by closing the track with a straight line in case there are no
closed tracks).

Altitudes: Track with altitudes (if the track features the altitude datum), Maximum
altitude, Minimum altitude, Departure altitude (at the track origin), Arrival altitude (at the
last point), Gain from the departure (difference between the departure altitude and the
maximum reached), Departure-arrival slope, Maximum slope (difference of altitude
between the highest and lowest point of the track), Accumulated climb * (total of the
different gains in altitude made during the track, i.e. what we have had to climb in reality),
accumulated descent*, ( Max. vertical speed (climbing speed), Min. Vertical speed
(descent speed), Max. Slope, Min. Slope.

Speed: Medium speed and Maximum speed reached in the track.

Energy: Mass (weight of the person tracking together with the vehicle, bicycle,
motorbike, rucksack, etc.), Energy measured in Joules, Average power measured in vats
(consumed along the whole track), Average power on climbs measured in vats
(consumed during the track climbs).
*Only altitudes changes over 5 metres will be computed in properties, such as accumulated
climb/descent. This is in order to prevent the resulting fluctuations of the GPS error margin from
adding non real differences of level.
As a result, a track that begins and ends in the same place may have an „accumulated climb‟ that
does not match the „accumulated descent‟.
CompeGPS Land lets you modify the “minimum difference to accumulate difference of level” in
order to adjust it to your preferences in the track analysis.
8.3.8.2
Properties of a track point
You may enter the properties of a single point in the track from the navigation screen by opening
the contextual menu on the point in the map and selecting „edit track point‟.
CompeGPS Team S.L.


Description: You may include a note of your choice for this place.

Coordinates: You may consult or modify the coordinates of the point.

Day and date

Associations: it associates image or sound files to your waypoints so they are displayed
during navigation when reaching this point.
8.3.9
Track graph
You may visualize a graph of the loaded route in two ways:

From the tracks list: By selecting the contextual menu option of the route or by selecting
the route and pressing the
button.
Through the data fields: You may place the „route graph‟ file in any position within the data pages,
however, it is recommended to use the space of the graph page for this end. (+info)
8.3.10 Activate a track (Navigate)
You may activate (navigate) a track in three ways:

Menu “Navigate…”

Contextual menu of the track in the tracks list (long click on the track in the tracks lists).
The tracks list also features a direct access button to the navigation function.

Contextual menu of the track on the map (long click on the track on the map).
Once activated, TwoNav will guide you along the track by using two tools:
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com

GOTO arrow: In the „next event‟ space, an arrow will be displayed to indicate a direction
tangent to the track. It means you can take the direction of this arrow as a reference to
keep going your way.
Note: If you are over 50 metres far from the track, the GOTO arrow will indicate the
perpendicular to the track instead of the tangent. At this distance it will be considered that
you are off the way that you should be following and that you must go back to it in the
most direct possible way, i.e. perpendicularly.
Guide line: Your position will be joined to the track by means a perpendicular line between them.
When you are over 50 metres from the track, this line will turn red.
Note: If the track you are following has over 100 points, the guide line will indicate the
point closest to the track instead of the perpendicular.

Maps
TwoNav lets you manage a great variety of maps in an easy way.
You may get more maps to use with TwoNav in various ways, from buying them directly from our
web page, to calibrate paper maps with CompeGPS Land.
For further information go to www.compegps.com or www.twonav.com.
8.4.1
Supported formats
TwoNav can open directly next map formats:

*.RMAP (CompeGPS Raster map format)
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com





*.ECW (Raster). This format is not compatible with TwoNav Symbian and TwoNav
iPhone.
*.VMAP/*MPVF (CompeGPS vector map format)
*.IMP (calibration file requiring image file)
*.MAP (calibration file requiring image file)
*.CDEM (3D relief)
More map formats can be imported and converted to these ones from CompeGPS Land/Air.
8.4.2
Types of maps
There exist 3 different basic types of maps:

Vmap: Road maps with which the On-road* works.

Topo: Topographic maps from CompeGPS.

CDEM relieves: Elevations maps whose only information is the altitude of the grounds.
When having a relief loaded we may enter the 3D+ and give altitude to the created
waypoints, routes and tracks.
Besides these three types of CompeGPS own ones, you may use other types of maps that you
may get by other means (air images, topographic maps from other sources, scanned and
calibrated paper maps, etc.).
*If the TwoNav memory does not contain any other road map, the On-road mode won‟t be
activated.
Enter the Map Shop in www.twonav.com.
8.4.3
Maps lists
Management of the maps is centralized in the maps list, however, it is also possible to carry out
many other actions directly from the navigation screen by means of the contextual menu.
See the Data section to learn the general operation of the lists.
By entering the maps list you will be able to see all the maps available in the „TwoNavData/Maps‟
folder for your present position.
If you wish to see the complete list of maps (not just the ones of the present position), activate the
„see all‟ button.
Each map has an icon to indicate which type of map it is:
Vectorial
Raster
Relief (CDEM)
If a map is present in maps folder but it is not activated (license required), a padlock will be
added to the icon.

9 “Simulation” and “Zoom to...”
9.1
Simulation
TwoNav lets you see a representation of the itinerary you are going to follow. It will be displayed
with the position icon in green to distinguish it from the „present position‟ icon in red.
It features two kinds of simulations:

A->B (only in „On-road‟ mode): From „Main menu > Discover > Simulate‟, you may
choose two points (POIs, addresses, favourites…) so it shows you the proposed route to
go from point A to point B.

Reproduce track: Open the Contextual Menu in the tracks list or with the track on the
map and select „Play‟. An animation of the itinerary will be displayed. During the
animation, the simulated position will be shown with a green arrow and will become the
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com
prevailing one, so the position will be centred on it and the movement statistics will be
related to it.
To stop the simulation, you may go to „Main menu > Discover > Stop sim.‟
9.2
Zoom to…
The option „Zoom to…‟ allows you to carry out a quick pre-visualization of the element you wish to
see on the map*. There are a great number of elements to visualize:

Address: if you have loaded a routable map, with this tool you will be able to see the
address chosen by you and it will appear centred on the screen.

POI: if you have loaded a routable map, you will be able to carry out a quick visualization
of the Points of Interest (POIs), such as petrol stations theatres, etc.

Favourites: you may establish places on the map as favourite points, as for example
your home. If you have saved places as favourites, you will be able to zoom on them in
order to see them centred on the map.

Data: You will also be able to see waypoints, routes and tracks on the map. Although
you do not need to have loaded the map on which this data was created, as previsualization is based on the geographical coordinates, it is interesting to „zoom to…‟
these element on the map for you to see the details of the ground where they were made.
CompeGPS Team S.L.
http://www.compegps.com
http://support.compegps.com

Coordinates: TwoNav allows you to quickly visualize concrete coordinates introduced by
you. Remember that to visualize what these coordinates correspond to, you must have
loaded a map of that area.
*Note: the option „Zoom to‟ shows you the element that you want to see in a window solely for
this purpose that is not the same as the navigation window. However, when you carry out a
„Zoom to…‟ an element, when returning to the navigation window, the focus will still be on this
element. To re-centre the focus on its present position you may use the „Re-centre‟ tools.
