To plan a nice tour from your current (or other) location easily and quickly, the roundtrip tool has been developed. This way you can plan a nice route within a few minutes by indicating how far or how long you want to drive.
- In the 'Routelab', click on the "Roundtour" button to start. You will then see the pop-up below:
Find an address you want to start from or click anywhere on the map.
This is the starting point of the route and the centre point for calculating the round trip.
Indicate how long you want to drive. This can be in miles but also in hours or minutes. This is the maximum distance or duration calculated.
Here you can change other settings such as: avoid certain roads, transport mode, altitude difference and how winding the route should be.
Indicate the direction in which you want to drive. Please note: if the direction is completely in the water, or somewhere else you cannot drive to, you may not be able to find a round trip.
Click here to calculate the round trip.
After calculating the tour, you will see how the route will run.
7. If the route is not exactly to your liking, adjust some parameters and click "Generate roundtour" again.
8. Here you can see the data of the calculated route.
If you are satisfied, click 'use this route track'.
Save route track
You will get a new screen:
9. Give the route a name;
10. You can choose the privacy settings;
Finally, click on 'save'
Using the roundtour
The tour will now be saved as a "Route-track" in your route list. This is a route that does not use waypoints but a drawn line on the road. This allows you to export it to your navigation exactly as plotted. It is possible to convert the route-track to a route.
Export this route directly to your navigation.
Save as: download the file as a selected format.
Edit route-track: clicking this converts the file into a conventional route with waypoints that you can edit. This allows you to customise small sections as you wish.
Attention! As MyRoute-app Navigation can only navigate routes, this is an important step if you want to navigate the tour with your MRA Navigation app.
Tip! In addition, we always recommend that you check a route carefully for any 'lost' route points. So check that the waypoints are always on the right side of the road, past intersections, roundabouts and exits.
Share: Here you can share the route-track on the different channels (see also How can I share routes and tracklogs?).
