Splitting Routes

New Split a Route featureWe're very pleased to announce another great new feature for our Premium members - a route planner function that lets you to split one route into up to 15 separate routes.

The new Split a Route feature will be great news for anyone planning long distance routes that wants to split up them into more manageable chunks, perhaps daily sections to load onto a GPS device. Splitting a route is simply a matter of choosing where along the route you want to split it and then letting the system do all the rest, saving each one as a separate route with a numeric suffix to help you identify them. You can create a fortnight's worth of routes in just a few clicks with this new feature.

If you want to do the opposite and join several routes together into one long route, you can also do this using our Combine Routes feature. Both of these features are available under the "Create" menu and the Plot Function toolkit in the route planner.

If you're currently a Standard member and would like to find out more about other features like the new Split a Route function that are exclusively available under Premium membership, please visit our Membership Options page.
