"View Route" page - Uneditable text 7 34 Well, the distance is factual but 'hillines' is relative to the context, e.g., urban vs rural or strolling vs hill walking. What one person thinks of as 'hilly' may not seem so to someone else. I fee...

"View Route" page - Uneditable text 7 34 That's a relatively new change Martyn. Its automatically generated from data available to provide some basic information about the route - length, hilliness, terrain, shape. Why is it inappropriate ...
"View Route" page - Uneditable text 7 34 I've not noticed it before but maybe it's always been present, there is a line of un-editable text on the first page after selecting "view route". For example, on one of my routes it says "A hilly c...
Combine route with different elements 2 22 Interesting question. On a map, a route can be plotted over any terrain, road, land, water. But if you want to apply different timimgs etc to different parts to represent the specific excerise, then ...

Choice of Free Maps 1 108 Following a review of technical and commercial options for satellite imagery, we've now been able to reintroduce satellite maps as part of our free service. We reluctantly had to restrict them to Pre...

Sync to Garmin Connect stopped working ? 4 42 Hi Winfried,Happy New Year to you too!It looks like your Garmin link was deactivated on Plotaroute on 30 December. You'll need to set it up again from your My Settings page, however before doing thi...
Map jumps around in navigation mode 4 160 Hi Jacqui,It's hard to know why without more details. I would check your Auto-Plot switch though to make sure you haven't enabled any of the drop-down options like "Prefer Off-Road". Also, make sure...
Sync to Garmin Connect stopped working ? 4 42 I just discovered this a few days ago and used it last night ... worked for me.
Sync to Garmin Connect stopped working ? 4 42 Happy new year to the plotaroute.com staff.Routes that I created yesterday and today (see links below) are not syncing to Garmin Connect. The start icon in 'My Routes' stays black and the routes don'...
Map jumps around in navigation mode 4 160 When I'm plotting a route walking on a long straight rd I have to do multiple touches or it takes me around all the side rds to get to my destination. Used to be able to do one click at the start an...
Terrain Inspection 10 937 Dark blue or black for road, dark green for off-road - I'd prefer one of them to be red. I know red's used for gradient but you can only display one type of terrain at a time so using the same three ...
Making "Download As Image" really attractive 2 29 That's an interesting and very nice idea Lucas. Thanks for suggesting that. We've added it to our Feature Requests list. ...
Elevation Data Upgrade 12 218 Hi Lucas - thanks for your feedback. The profile charts are generated in realtime but the elevation statistics on the View Route and My Routes pages (Ascent, Descent, etc.) are generated when the ro...
Making "Download As Image" really attractive 2 29 Today it is quite common to share absolved routes/tracks via smartphone. You are addressing this with the option t download a route as an image (PNG/GIF/JPG) and the option to set the dimensions to f...
Elevation Data Upgrade 12 218 Hello and thanks a lot - for Plotaroute and for this update as well!For sure this is an enhancement for many routes. The more accurate the elevation data is, the less little unaccurancy in the GPS da...
Elevation Data Upgrade 12 218 Hi Antonio - we're investigating, it looks like there may be a data void in your area with the new data. If so, we'll revert back to the old data for that area....

Elevation Data Upgrade 12 218 Now, plotaroute doesn't show elevation profile, and even does not inform total ascend
Terrain Inspection 10 937 That's a good idea Garry, I think we always intended to add some of the Terrain features to the View Route page as well as when editing a route, but it was more tricky from a design point of view and...
Terrain Inspection 10 937 It would sometimes be useful to see terrain on saved routes (a workaround is obviously to just re-edit it - I see terrain in the editor even without actually re-plotting) but even more usefully to be...
Elevation Data Upgrade 12 218 Thank you! On my sample climb of the Poudre Canyon in Colorado USA, the model is much better. While it still has sawteeth that don't exist, the timer model no longer predicts "time travel". More test...
