Vote for New Features

Vote for New FeaturesWe often receive suggestions and ideas from users of the site for new or enhanced features. Since plotaroute.com was launched we've implemented dozens of suggestions from users and plan to continue to invest in enhancing the site on an ongoing basis. We try to focus on adding new features that we think will benefit lots of people but it isn't always easy to choose from the growing list that we have. So, to help us to understand which are the most popular requested features, we've now introduced a new Feature Requests section on the site where you can vote for the Feature Requests that you are most interested in.

We will try to prioritise the most popular Feature Requests if we can but this will also depend on other factors like cost and feasibility. Sometimes ideas need more discussion to understand the purpose behind them, so each Feature Request can be linked with a discussion topic on the forums where any comments can be shared.

A Personal Message From the Website Founder...


Kilimanjaro for CancerHi! My name is John and I'm the founder of plotaroute.com. I'd like to firstly say a big thank you for visiting the site - I hope you are finding it useful. I'd also like to take this opportunity to make a personal request if I may.

In October last year my wife Beata tragically died of ovarian cancer at the age of just 41. In her memory I'm going to attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for two amazing charities that did a great deal to help her during her cancer journey - cancer charity Yes to Life and the Princess Alice Hospice. If you are able to make a small donation to support my fundraising I would be very grateful - your donations will help people with cancer who are facing the most desparate of situations, where life has little hope, so it means a lot.

You can donate on my Kilimanjaro for Cancer fundraising page. I am paying for all my own costs so all the money raised will go to the charities. Thanks in advance for your support.
