    My first post here.

    I just bought a TomTom XXL and i cant find my track "history".
    In my old Garmin there were something called .gpx files.
    I could open these .gpx files and overlay my tracks on different maps.

    What is the TomTom version of .gpx and where can I find them?

    The XXL doesn't produce a track history that anyone can interpret, and is used by TomTom to collect average speed data to improve the IQRoutes system.

    However, what you're looking for is available as a 3rd party program. Take a look at Tripmaster. It will build track files in *.gpx format on just about any TomTom.

    Le Web Bazar !!! Tripmaster !!!

    It also does a lot of other things that you may or may not find useful.

    Be sure to grab both the application (load it as instructed) and the "hook" file, as he calls it, which appears as "Program for Tomtom v8.x or v9.x compliance" on that page. You'll need that for the application to manage the screen correctly.

    I've never seen this run on an XXL 5" screen before, so I'll be interested to hear how it looks.
