Shortcut to Upload a Route

Following a suggestion on the forum, we've made it quicker and easier to upload routes to plotaroute.com, with a new Upload button and menu option on the home page. The new options will launch the route planner in 'upload' mode, giving you faster access to the upload panel where you can choose the route you want to upload.

We've set up a new shortcut for uploading routes, so if you like you can bookmark this in your browser for a one-click link to upload your routes: www.plotaroute.com/uploadroute
