It is not possible to use in your motorbike the AvMap products. Mainly for two reasons: 1. they are not waterproof, 2. they are not equipped with audio output or wireless connection for auriculars.

This error may be caused by the fact that the trace files often contain inside track points.
Geosat Suite accepts files .gpx that contain ONLY TRACKS (so only the path) or ONLY contact  (Points / waypoints)
 
To split the file type you can do this;
 
- Open the file (kmz, kml, gpx or gdb) with Google Earth
- On the left menu, expand the file displaying the components
   (Eg TRACKS = Points + PATH)
 
- Eliminate Points
- Rename the PATH by entering the name of the track
 
- Save the resulting file format .KML (Save as)
- Convert the file to GPX using GPS Babel (and let selected
   "tracks") to obtain for  example TRACKS.gpx
 
- Reload the original file with Google Earth and do the same with the POINTS ( delete your PATH and leave the waypoints)
 
- Save the resulting file format. KML (Save as)
- Convert the file to GPX using GPS Babel (let selected
   "tracks") to obtain for example WAYPOINTS.gpx
 
- The two files and WAYPOINTS.gpx TRACKS.gpx can now be transferred into the Geosat Through, with no error messages.

The Farmnavigator Auto-steering System controls your vehicle steering, and helps you stay on track following with great precision the guide lines set on the Farmnavigator.

This way, you can switch from the "light bar" system to automatic driving, meaning you can focus on controlling the implements instead of worrying about the steering wheel, which improves the quality and effectiveness of the job. Such a system is very useful in scarce visibility conditions, in case of fog and dusty fields.

You can disengage the auto steering by firmly grasping the steering wheel; vice versa you can engage it very easily by tapping the corresponding icon on the Farmnavigator display.
The Farmnavigator Autosteering system supports all vehicle interface types: Mechanical, ISO/CAN,
Hydraulic and Factory steer ready. Custom install kits are available to simplify installation for over 750 models of agricultural machines.
The MDU mounts on existing steering wheel without requiring its removal thanks to the Patented universal ring gear. The MDU simply clamps on and off for fast and easy transfer across vehicles of different brands and types (tractors, sprayers, spreaders or combines).
