  • @Timo-Martosatiman-MRA

    What are the different maps available in MRA, what are their strengths and weaknesses, which ones should we use for which part of the route preparation work, how do the maps relate to the main brands of GPS systems...

    @Drabslab Thank you for the suggestion!

    How to add POIs to a TomTom via ‘Save as’.

  • May talk about what's the difference of Favorites and POIs to users. In may understanding, MRA does not cover all common agreed possibilities which can be used for POI. If MRA could use those fields for address, phone, category, logo/picture, URL - that will truely have benefit for us users. And it will make sense to have a private collection of POIs.

    On the other side, I can't see the benefit of Favorites. They will not be transmitted to NAVI device. And compared with Way Point, they have only one field to keep a name of. Way Points have an additional field to keep a coment (Phone of Hotel, or address or URL, etc.). So, if you have made some comments in WP and make it favorite, than you will lose in that new favorite your comments of the WP.
    In my understanding, faforites may simplify route planning. But with no posibility to keep some additional information like opening hours of a sight seeing point, restaurant, or bridge/tunel, etc. - it will not. And if POI will be tuned as described above - where is the difference/benefit for favorites?
    So I believe, tune POI will be enough.

  • @Guzzist Hai,

    I see favorites adn PoI as the same thing but in a different category.

    PoI categories could as an example be

    • Favorite (as in personal only for myself and to be shared between MRA and my own GPS),
    • Friends (my favorites visible for my MRA friends)
    • MRA (visible to all MRA users
    • external (lists of PoI coming from i don't know where)

    For the rest they could be identical. That would also allow to simplify the user interface of MRA

  • @Timo-Martosatiman-MRA

    My sugestion had to do with POI.
    As I learned from Serge, I can import POI in the OV2, GPX or CSV format.
    This works.
    But when I have a list of POI from Google Maps, the format is KML and I cannot import those POI's.
    Please tell me how to import POI from Google Maps.

    Thank you.

    Regards, Oscar

  • @Oscar-van-Heertum Hi Oscar,
    please Google "convert kml to gpx" - there are Freeware or online Tools. After converting the kml file with POI into gpx file, you can upload to MRA.

    Hi Bert,

    You can place them in the webinar feedback form at the end of every webinar!

    Kind regards,


  • How to make offroad routes in myrouteapp and how to ride the offroad routes with Navigation. Preferably in the Dutch version of the webinar.

  • Some suggestions for topics to discuss and questions for this webinar : -

    • Please can you explain the purpose of Groups and how to join & create them? Also, the purpose of Friends?

    • Why have the ability to create tracks if these cannot be used in Navigation?

    • Questions regarding MRA Navigation app -

      • Please could you explain the function of ‘Skip Route Point’? Is the route point skipped ahead or behind?
      • Navigation will malfunction if a route point is missed, for example because of a temporary road diversion. How can this be corrected during a ride?
      • Is it possible to change the guidance voice?
      • The voice guidance can be rather intrusive sometimes. How is it possible to change the frequency of guidance - eg an option for alerts only?
      • What is the ‘upload’ function in Navigation?
      • What are Events in Navigation?

    Enjoying the webinars, and learning a lot; thanks for doing them..

  • Zou je willen laten zien hoe ik een lus uit een route in een andere route kan plakken, ik heb namelijk veel routes die starten in dezelfde plaats en ik wil controleren of ik dan niet teveel over dezelfde wegen rij.
