  • New aesthetic line: A radical change in its design to present more manageable software. Similar to the aesthetic lines used in our website (new font, shades, background colour, etc.).


     

      
    NOW BEFORE

NEW BUTTON BAR

 

 

Link to Land’s most commonly-used functions: (‘Data tree’, ‘Graphics’, ‘Properties’, ‘Open/Save files’, ‘Automaps’, ‘Advanced options’…).

 


 
NOW

 


 
BEFORE

 

We’ve thought about the Land users in order to adapt the button bar to their needs by reorganising it and eliminating the least-used buttons. Enjoy new and more useful direct links, or even customise them according to your needs.

NEW TOOLBAR

 

This bar contains a variety of useful tools for achieving the best map perspective and enabling tracks, flights and routes to be edited (‘map guidance’, ‘automatic centring’, ‘zoom’, ‘2D/3D mode’...).

 


 
NOW

 


 
BEFORE


In the new version of Land 8, you’ll find the toolbar vertically on the left-hand side by default. This gives you a larger viewing area for your maps and routes. If you prefer, you can show it horizontally by opening the context menu and clicking ‘Show toolbar vertically’.



 

 


We’ve also adapted the toolbar to the functions most used by athletes. If you wish to personalise the software tools even more, you can always move, hide or add any button in the bar.

REARRANGEMENT OF THE MAIN MENU

 

An outstanding innovation is the restructuring of the main menu, where you can operate may of Land 8’s advanced functions and options. With options more accessible and regrouped into categories that streamline item management.

NEW DATA TREE

 

One of Land’s most distinctive features is its data tree. You can use it to quickly access the most frequently-used operations, to edit maps, waypoints, routes, tracks, flights, etc.



 

 
NOW BEFORE


The new tree is very similar to the successful previous version, but it includes new, more visual icons to clearly distinguish each group of elements.

NEW SCALE BAR

 


 

 
NOW BEFORE


One of the most important elements of map editing is the scale. At Land we’ve moved and grouped several functions into a single space. These include:

 

  • Scale: This represents the square metres of terrain contained in every pixel of the map.

  • Compass: This represents the direction on the horizontal plane.
      
  • Resolution: This indicates the square metres covered by the rectangles which make up the relief. The less square metres each frame represents, the more detailed the relief will be (more resolution).
      
  • Zoom level: This enables you to choose the percentage increase or reduction of the scale from a list, or enter it manually.

NEW SCREENSET

 

 

When working with Land 8, it's highly likely that you’ll need to look for data in additional windows while you’re using the data tree. To this end, we offer you various ways of viewing these modules without taking up the whole map window:

 

  • Option 1 - Tabbed view: All the windows are displayed in the same space. To view the other windows, click each tab and the previous window will disappear.


     

     
  • Option 2 - Split view: You can display two or more split windows in a single space. Using this mode, all the windows are always displayed in the screen.

Remember that you can always hide these windows with just one click. Open the context menu in the bar of any window and click ‘Minimise’. To go back to viewing the window, click the dropdown again.

NEW MAPS SHOP

 

 

Another of Land’s lesser-known utilities is its maps shop, completely redesigned so that just one click will take you to the maps that best suit your itineraries.  

 

You’ll find a wide range of maps in a variety of formats:

  • Road maps (which you can use to navigate around cities)
  • Topographical maps (from the most prestigious cartographic institutes in the world)
  • Orthophoto maps (high-resolution satellite images)

 

Click ‘Maps shop’ in the button bar and buy any map with just one click. Access them from the data tree in the ‘Maps’category.

 

 

Remember that the TwoNav maps are multiplatform; in other words, you can install them in Land or in the TwoNav GPS. You can also install each map in up to three different devices (GPS, smartphone, other Land licenses).

 

 

You can download the map into the other devices from your myTwoNav user profile (TwoNav user area).

Check your point-to-point progress and improve your performance by exceeding your achievements daily.

REORGANISATION OF THE 'OPTIONS' SECTION

 


 

 

 

We’ve reorganised the software’s advanced options ('Main menu > File > Options'). It includes a more logical organisation of the functions into new categories, as well as rapid access to advanced setups by clicking “Options” in the button bar.
