The usual complaint is that MM cannot accept enough trackpoints as there is an
The tracklog upload is designed primarily as a supplement to a member’s log to
show exactly what was walked rather than as a resource to be downloaded by
others, although the option to make a tracklog public obviously does give
others guidance as to what it doable. The current system allows those who want
to see every nuance of what was walked (warts and all) to do so, as well as
those like yourself who are happy with a cut down version.
The threshold is currently set to allow the upload of a full day on the hill
with the GPS set to auto record trackpoints. I imagine this would be most folk's
default whether they realise it or not. Thinning of trackpoints requires
additional software that not everyone will have.
Of course there is nothing to
stop you downloading a tracklog and do the thinning yourself if you have the
tools to do so.
Hope that helps explain things.
