    Thanks for your feedback Geoff.

    It probably wouldn't be commercially viable for us to offer sharing of routes with any map type, as we provide route sharing for free and some map types are very costly. We might be able to offer a cut down list of options for sharing. We've added this to the Feature Requests list (number 127) where people can vote for it.

    With regards to a default map type to use when you view a route, we may be able to apply the same approach as we do on the route planner, where it remembers the last map tpye you selected. If this is something we can do easily we'll try to add this when we next do work on the route viewer.

    Yes please and for sharing routes too. I want the 'share' recipient to see the right map without having to navigate the map layers. They might not be so familiar with route planners, map layers etc.

    after re-boot .... still Cycle Map

    Ah, but that's the main plotting page (Edit). I think you are referring to Viewing (as in My Routes/View) .... agreed, Street Map is the default.

    Strange. My desptop app is remembering my map selection between sessions. Uplaoded a GPX, set Cycle Map. Shut down PR, re-sytarted and it's still Cycle Map.

    Let me re-boot .....

    Agreed....PlotaRoute is very good but having to choose a map every time is boring!

    I spend my time in the hills so always want to see trails and contours. The default streetmap is no use. I want the setting to stick when I'm sharing routes too. I want the recipient to see the right map without having to select it.

    Thanks for that suggestion Garry. There isn't an option for this at present, but we've added it to our Feature Requests list where people can vote for it.

    I hope I'm not being dim and missing an existing option but it would be helpful to be able to set the default map type when opening routes.
