One of the most popular Feature Requests we've had is to be able to place symbols anywhere on the map (not just along the route) and to have a much wider choice of symbols. We've also had feedback that it wasn't obvious enough how to add symbols and labels to the route. Our latest upgrade aims to address this.
You can now place symbols and custom labels anywhere on the map, by clicking on the new "Annotate Map" button in the bottom left corner of the route planner.
We've also redesigned and expanded the range of symbols - there now over 100 to choose from in a choice 9 different colours.
We've chosen a selection of symbols that we think will meet most people's needs, particularly focusing on race directors and event organisers, who often need to show the location of important features like registration points, toilets/restrooms, water stations and parking. However, if you can't find a suitable symbol, you can still highlight the feature on the map with a custom text label, which can now be placed anywhere.
