Latest News - Wednesday 24 Sep 2014


New Instant Locality Search

Our latest upgrade has added locality and country information to all routes on the database. This means that you can now quickly and easily display a list of routes that start from a given town or village using the Browse Shared Routes page. Here's a couple of examples:

You will also now find locality information in other places throughout the site, including the main route information page as shown below. Here you'll be able to click on the route's locality and get a list of other routes that start near the same place.

Locality Link on Route Page

Of course, you can still search for routes on the map as well by selecting Find a Route from the menu on the home page or by using the Find menu in the route planner.
