-===== Connecting a TomTom Rider 4XX =====+Kurviger can export route files as ''GPX'' and ''ITN''. Newer TomTom devices can import ''GPX'' and ''ITN'', older devices can only import ''ITN'' (and possibly ''GPX2ITN'', see below). If you require the route to be identical to your planned route, you should choose the ''GPX Track''. If you want to change some route options or waypoints, the ITN file is recommended. Mind you, your TomTom will recalculate the route if you choose ''ITN'', therefore it might differ from your planned route, you can choose to generate additional waypoints to help your TomTom device to stay on the planned route. A good resource (only availalbe in German) for TomTom Rider specific tutorials can be found [[https://www.klein-bild.de/tomtom/start.htm|here]] and the [[https://www.klein-bild.de/tomtom/tomi3.htm|tutorial on transferring routes to a TomTom Rider]] (with images).
