    I'd like to add that I had success in generating cue sheets for routes exported from Strava with http://plotaroute.com (free with ads).

    One of the problem I see there is when you want to follow a track that you have downloaded in GPX format. You can import the GPX file to Lezyne root but you do not get Turn By Turn information, meaning that is is nearly impossible to follow the track.

    Ride With GPS generates cuesheets only when you are creating your own route. If you upload a GPX file then you will not get cuesheet informations, or you have to pay for a basic suscription ($6 a month or $50 a year).

    So GPS are running fine if you plan your own root, but it would be very useful that in Lezye GPS root you can convert TCX or GPX files to TCX files with cuesheets to use Turn by Turn navigation. Or better, download a GPX file and upload it directly in Ally V2 App and conversion to TBT would be made there.

    I have not found in plotaroute then how to add cuesheets, will look there waiting for upgrades in Lezyne GPS root site. Hope this will come very soon ... and make me enjoy more your GPS.

    One thing that would be nice is if it were possible to upload a GPX or TCX file directly into the GPS Ally app. The process of going through the GPS root website is great when you have a computer handy, but clunky if limited to a mobile device. Would be an awesome feature to have, when rolling up to a fondo or meeting up with a friend who has texted you a link to the days route!

    I have found that when I receive a GPX file from an event organiser I can easily convert it to a TCX file using Ride With GPS, and save it as a TCX to my PC. When I load the file to Lezyne GPS Rooot it saves it as a GPX file, meaning it cannot be transferred to my Mega XL...making it nothing more than an over sized tracking device! 

    Why does GPS Root change it back to a TCX file?

    I recently bought the Mega XL i really like the device especially the possibility to customize the layouts. I tried to use the navigation with a downloaded GPX ride, but stumbled appon a problem. Previously i owned a Garmin edge 50 that had simple breadcrumb navigation, i could download ride but i didnt nececerely had to start at the beginning of the route. After my first ride with the Mega XL i got the impression that this is not possible with the XL and i have to navigate to the starting point before i can begin the ride, which can be a bit unpractical at some point. So my question is, am i right or is this a feature already present on the device, if not this would be really nice addition the have in the future.

    Thx!
