MRA Navigation Suggestion:
Add a button for change from "guidance view" (Standard MRA navigation view) to "map view" too see where i am in the track.
Alternatively a zoom +/- could be a good solution.
Doing always a pinch-to-zoom is complicated. You have to stop the ride and take off the gloves.
Hallo Sybille, Off-road heist hier nicht auf Straßen fahren. Deshalb wird nur die Verbindung zwischen 2 Punkten als Line dargestellt. Im Off-road Modus fährt man nur nach den örtlichen Gegebenheiten möglichst entlang der Routenlinie (Luftlinie) zum nächsten Wegpunkt. Man könnte auch sagen, man fährt Querfeldein.
Wenn Du im Kartenmaterial vorhanden Wege benutzen willst, dann solltest Du im Straßenmodus Deine Routen planen.

Many thanks for that. For some reason i didn't see it when looking in the toolkit earlier. Probably looked but didn't see. Don`t know how i missed it. Many thanks for the heads up Christian
@Drabslab I consider the tools within MRA for avoiding certain types of roads and the options within a GPS device for fastest or hilliness etc to be ok if you just want to make a quick route. If you are making a more complex route, I would have all of these settings turned off, the use of sufficient and strategically placed route points should be enough for most devices to follow your planned route. I do think it would be good for those that use these tools for their preference of these settings to be stored in MRA. The settings chosen for each route are stored for each individual route that you have in your library.
I strongly support this suggestion! I tend to participate in several ironbutt rides and certain POIs can be hundreds or thousands of miles away. It would be great to be able to upload my POI list, zoom out and still be able to see the POIs in order to start creating my routes. For us rally, long distance riders, this would be extremely useful. A "game changer" in all honesty! Keep up the good work MRA!
@Will-Brooks Excellent suggestion - as you say some good looking routes turn out to have speed restrictions lower than you would expect - sometimes due to the road surface or an accident history, but having a layer (like traffic?) allowing an overlay colour coding the roads by 'national speed limit applies' and either specific colors for given speeds, or just a 'reduced speed' colour to highlight speed restrictions. Would be great for planning
Hallo Menno, het startpunt kun je zelf aanpassen bij iedere route uit MyRoute-App.
Klik op het routepunt waar jij je route wil laten starten, klik vervolgens op de 3 puntjes ... en klik dan op het vlaggetje met "Go". Je zal dan de vraag krijgen of je van dit routepunt je startpunt wil maken, en bij bevestigen, zal dit routepunt 1 worden en je routepunten worden hierop aangepast.
Wij als "RouteXperts' gebruiken de huidige kleuren van de routepunten voor:
Blauw: Standaard routepunt / vormingspunt
Geel: Bezienswaardigheid onderweg langs of dicht aan de route gelegen
Groen: Mooi plaats om een foto te maken
Rood: Stopplaats voor lunch / overnachting / koffie
Rose: Opletten, mogelijk wijkt Here & TT hier van elkaar af of let op Onverharde weg. In ieder geval waarschuwingen.
Hallo Horst, when you wil use the route in your Navigator, add more routepoints to your route, toen export the route to your navigator. The route, Track and POI’s are exported.
Use the route, the route wil be recalculated.
When you wil share your route use always the track.
Thanks guys for the replies. I have not tried a recalculation, guess I didn't know there was such a thing. Nick, your picture, sums it up to a Tee bud. Also, you make an excellent question, "If you know you've gone off track and if you know what direction your headed." In one case I went to have lunch about 75 miles away from me, taking country roads, I've never been on, just enjoying the afternoon. Well it told me to take a left on a country road which I did, and then I started noticing a mile down the road it wanted me to do a Uturn to go back. Long story short on that one was my way point pin was just slightly off the main road and slightly on the side road ( I did not know this til I got back home and pulled it up on pc) so it thought I needed to stop there. But I got turned around in my head because when I went back to the way I came, and then made the left, (putting me back on the original road I was on to begin with), and started going again, it told me to turn around to go back to the turnoff I just came from, and watching the repeated turn around cues and mileage growing the further I got from it, and the closer I got to the town I was going I didn't know what turns I needed to make to get to the restaurant due to it keep telling me to turn around. I guess the skip feature is the best, but sometimes your not quite sure of surroundings so it's like, uhm yea, I think skip next waypoint, lol.
@Drabslab said in Great suggestion list: map version:
Based upon user input, It appears that some map versions differ between navigation app and web application, or are outdated (see recent post on openmap) ?
Hello Drabslab, I also think this would be an really interesting information to know.
Hi @mattatron. Your friends that have accepted your invite will appear on the left side of the route editor. And as well as what Hans said above about receiving track notifications from friends, you can choose to set route privacy to friends allowing only you and your friends to see certain routes. You sent me a friend request which I have just accepted, I noticed that you don't have any About Me information on your profile. It's always nice to read a little about other members, why not add a few lines about what sort of riding you enjoy. Add where you live too, not your address, but just the basic region, this can lead to meeting up with others in your area or who share your interests. By the way, I've just left a comment on your South East Coast route to Whitstable track
@Michael-McMahon said in Hide waypoints when planning?:
Is it possible to hide waypoints after creating a route? My current trip has hundreds of waypoints which serve no other purpose than maintaining the route on the correct road. Is there a way to toggle off or hide the way points after I'm done adjusting my route? As it currently is, the map is saturated with routing waypoints and it's difficult to see my favorites and POIs. All I want to see is the line on the road. Google Maps only shows their shaping points when you click on the route, otherwise they're normally hidden.
Hello @Michael-McMahon. Generally speaking, you shouldn't require hundreds of waypoints to form your route. It is not possible to hide the waypoints, so you could try deleting some to make your route more visible. Alternately, you can use the Route tab on the left of the route editor to add this particular route to an existing one. This will just show a line of your route that cannot be edited. I suggest making a new route (call it display or something) with just 1 waypoint that you can use to display other routes. Open the display route and choose to add the route with hundreds of waypoints.
