The header 'Routes' can be found both in the Route lab and under your Profile. You now enter your personal route archive where all your stored routes are. These are routes that you have created yourself, routes that you have uploaded, routes that you have copied from other MyRoute-app users or routes that you have 'transferred' from a tracklog. You can create folders to create structure.
The route list - options overview
In the route archive, the information is divided into columns and rows. The rows are the different routes listed below each other. Each column provides information about a specific feature of the routes. It is possible to sort your route list by these properties by clicking the corresponding column title. See the explanation below:
- (Sort by) Type of route/folder - Here you can see whether it is a folder or a route for driving, cycling or walking.
- (Sort by) Country - Here you can see by means of a flag in which country the route has been set out. A route through several countries will not show a flag.
- (Sort by) Name of the route. Sort by alphabet.
- (sort by) Type - The different types are: map, route and route-track.
- (Sort by) Privacy - Here you can see for whom the route/folder is visible: private, friends or public.
- (Sort by) Date last Changed
- (sort by) Distance
- (Sort by) Duration
- (Sort by) Appreciations- Any route can get appreciations. The total number is also shown here.
- Different options you can use for a specific route. See further details below at 10 - Edit options for a route.
- Search - This button allows you to search within the route archive.
- Embed - This button allows you to embed your route archive within a website. For more information about this, please see our FAQ page: How can I embed my route?
- New - This button allows you to create new folders and routes or upload a new route. See further explanation below at 13 - Add new
Continued 10 - Edit options for a route or a folder
As the overview already showed, there are several options, some of which are also available for a folder. It works exactly the same.
A. Lock waypoint operation: You cannot edit the route points in this route as long as the lock is activated.
B. Copy route
When making a copy, you can give a new name to the route. You can also indicate whether the copied route should be placed in a folder. If you do not want the route to be placed in a folder, do not click on a folder. Confirm the copy by clicking 'save'.
C. Edit route/folder: you can change the name and privacy mode. Finally, do not forget to click on 'update'.
D. Delete route/folder: you will be asked to confirm this choice; you can also cancel.
E. More options - if you click this icon a pop-up window will appear. This pop-up window contains several tabs: 'properties', 'share', 'save as' and 'export'. The different options for each tab are explained below.
Here you see an overview of the properties as they were also visible in columns in the route archive. There are a number of things you can do here:
E.2. Change privacy
E.3. Copy route
E.4. Move route to a folder
E.5. Delete route
It is possible to share the route in different ways:
- Mail route
- Share route via a link
- Embed: generate a code to show route on your own website.
You can save the route directly to the device you are working on by:
O.1. Selecting a file format
O.2 Save file
You can also e-mail the route by:
O.3. Enter your e-mail address
O.4. Select file format
O.5. Send Mail
To export a route directly to a navigation system, an additional program is required; the connector. If you have already installed the connector, you can skip step E.1. and click directly on 'open route'.
E.1. Install the connector for your computer's operating system.
E.2. Click 'Open route' and follow the steps as described in the image:
Continuation 13 - Add new: add/create folders and routes
When you click on the 'New' icon, a drop-down menu appears with the following options:
F. Create folder
G. Creating a new route (see also Manual 'Start a new route')
H. Upload route (see also manual 'Uploading route, route track and tracklog')
More about folders
Once the folder has been created, you can simply drag and drop the routes into the new folder. Within the folder, the layout and the different possibilities are the same as in the general overview. The title bar (underlined in the image below) shows in which folder you are looking. Using the two buttons indicated, you can return to the parent folder.
