When downloading data from the GPS, you may have noticed that many fields with no value get created for each record. You have the ability to customize the visible fields by going to the Properties menu item under each of the following menus: Waypoint, Track, Route, or Real-Time.

Uncheck the fields you do not want to see and click ‘OK’. Next time you download data, only the fields that are checked will be visible. Note: There are some required fields that will not allow you to uncheck them.

You also have the ability to customize field names by setting field aliases. The alias is what will show up in the data table as well as what will appear in the saved file.

Note: You can now also modify the field Type, Length, and Precision.
