convert your track to a route, or vice versa
You may convert a track into a route.
What is this good for? You have recorded a track, and you might want to go again along
the same way. So you convert your track into a route, write this route to your GPS receiver, and follow its instructions next time.
You may convert a route into a track:
What is this good for? There might be two reasons to do so:
1. you created a route which is too long for the route memory of your GPS receiver. You may load this track into the receiver then, and
follow the track line instead of a route.
2. you created a route consisting of waypoints with altitude values. In this case you might want to see the altitude diagram of your planned trip. This is usual for hiking trips, at least.
