Track Logs

If you enable Track Logs, you will find that they are stored at \My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap2\iGo.db and there are programs to convert this data.   You can also export the track log into a gpx file directly with the enhanced skins available starting with Version 3.4.

[UPDATED 2/12/2008 as this portion only applies to pre-Version 3.4 users]     …however on the Mio C230, the export button along the bottom of the Track Information screen is hidden, but can be restored by removing the word “hide” from \My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap2\\mio\320_240\ui\tracking_320_240.ui and zipping the file back up.   When it comes to zipping the file back up, it has been learned that WinZip version 11 (10 is OK though) is not compatible with MioMap.   I use WinRAR and I choose “best” compression but I’m not sure if that really matters.

The exported track logs are stored in \Storage Card\tracks.   You will find more here.

GPS Visualizer: Do-It-Yourself Mapping

GPS Visualizer is a free, easy-to-use online utility that creates maps and profiles from GPS data (tracks and waypoints), street addresses, or simple coordinates. Use it to see where you’ve been, plan where you’re going, or visualize geographic data (business locations, scientific observations, events, customers, real estate, geotagged photos, etc.).

    I use 7zip you can edit directly in the archive and when you are done editing it will ask if you want to update the archive. Simple, no fuss. It is compatible with zip files and a whole lot of others.

    Is it possible to import routes in Mio?

  3. c230 said

    Yes, but only those created in Mio units (yours or others) that I am aware of.

  4. HaCo said

    So not in gpx format? Will have a look at the Mio Files which you create with your router, it might help me.

    I need to be able to disply like 10 routes at the same time… (they may have the same color)

  5. c230 said

    I think you’re confusing routes with tracks. Garmin doesn’t help any as they do the same thing. Yes you can import tracks, which are in gpx format.

    a have MIO C230
    please anybody tell me what is this CAR LOGS and how can i use it?
    i can not have more then 2 favorites ?

  7. c230 said

    MioMap 3 is written to support 2 favorites per se, although you can add your own additional POIs in a “favorites” folder as well.

    I’m not sure what your other question is (car logs?).

    hi all

    recently I bought a Mio C 230 device from france. It has only France Maps with it. Do you have some idea from where I can install the europen map ?
    Any comments will be appreciated.

  9. c230 said

    I’m only familiar with the US version, but I thought I read somewhere that the EU version came with a DVD that had all of the available Eastern Europe maps on it to allow others to be installed. I’ll defer to others though that may actually know 🙂

    On January 27, C230 said you can import GPX tracks (in comment above). Could anybody explain how?

  11. c230 said

    I think what I meant (8 months ago, so I’m trying to recreate the thought process) is that anybody else’s track log created from a Mio can be saved to \Storage Card\tracks and played back on your own unit.

    Follow the link in this blog for more…

    Ahhh, okay. Perhaps there’s something related that might help my situation. I use my Mio to record my hikes. The problem comes when it re-boots. All previously recorded tracks disappear. I gather they are stored in igo.db. It appears this file gets overwritten with an older copy when re-booted. Is there a method to keep the new igo.db? Or even replace the old copy with the new one so the tracks are not lost?

    I do lot of openstreetmap mapping, so I need to save tracks without “snap to road”
    Is is possible. Whats the maximum length of tracklog.
    Is there an auto update option available?
