Title: Route Planning, change line type
Post by: Jethro10 on May 08, 2022, 10:29:02
Hi.
Again.....
When creating a route, I can select straight line for a segment to get to a path, then Hiking Profile to follow a path. If at a later date, I want to change a straight line segment and select a different profile like Hike to follow a path. Can this be done? or do I need to re-draw the complete route again?
As I'm just evaluating this, am I seeing the free version having less route planning options then if I subscribe?

Thanks
Jeff

Hello,

if you already have saved the route, just re-open it in the route planner (button in the bottom track toolbar) and you should get exactly the same situation as when you planned the route before.

So it is then easy to change a single segment. Most easy is to tap on any line you want to change and there is a button "recalculate" at the bottom.

Give it a try, I'm sure you will find it even from my description (without images).

I found my mistake. After highlighting the track I was selecting Modify Track as this was worded to do what I wanted. I should have select Route planner which I never did as to me it meant plan a route, Ie. from scratch, not modify it. For me the wording is the wrong way round but I'm there now.
Thanks

Jeff - I tend to agree with you - you have to get used to the terminology (somewhat historical baggage) - in my head "Modify Track" = "Track Editor", and "Route Planner" = "Route Editor"

It's all part of it.....
Getting there now.
