ExplorOz Traveller: Corrupt Private Treks

Corrupt Treks can occur when a Trek contains a Place that has since been deleted, or moved. There are other reasons too. If you attempt to use a Trek that has errors, you will be forced to accept every turn by turn segment in the route as soon as you open it, before having a chance to even press the Start Navigation button. That is not normal and is a sure indication that your file has errors. You should delete any Trek that is behaving like this rather than attempt to fix it.

You can check the turn by turn data in any trek without loading it into the navigator (ie. without pressing GoTo). Simply select the Trek name from your list, then when it opens look at the options at the bottom - you'll see that you can view other types of information about this trek - Information, Directions, Things to Do, and Map. If you click Directions you will see the exact driving directions data that the app has calculated for you. If something is wrong it is usually pretty obvious by looking at this information.

NOTE: every Trek that you load using GoTo will prompt you once for a Turn by Turn calculation - this is because the app will always provide you with guidance from your current position to the first Place in the saved Trek. After accepting this calculation, there should be no further prompts.
