Persuant to previous question, there is no "end" field, only start. Not a loop route. thxs again..

Hate to have an issue, having been a registered user for but 29 minutes, but, in creating my route, Vic, Spain to Pau, France, my clicker seems to be stuck in Fist mode and will not release for clicks. Is there a field which I've activated incorrectly? Also, while I have your cyber-ear, is there an android app from which I can download maps onto a phone or tablet to manipulate offline while touring, that will be compatiable with the route I create? Thanks . Dave.

The 3D flyover is OK, but is there a way to slow it down and fly much lower?.

I answered this a while ago, but didn't update the post here. You can now delete routes. When the owner is logged-in there's a delete button on the route displayed. Deleted routes stay in the database but they are removed from the user's profile and are no longer searchable. If another user marks a route as a favorite it can still be viewed, but will be marked as deleted..

Thanks Ray. I had avoided allowing deleting a route in case people mark them as favorites and then suddenly they are gone. I can think of a few alternatives that might solve this. On the naming routes, l could augment the current naming structure with a name. I don't want to eliminate the start/end point in the name entirely since that is really the best way for people to shop routes..

Two things. 1) I'd like to be able to delete routes that I am no longer interested in. 2) I'd like to be able to name the routes myself..

There were some difficulties after making some updates to the site last week, particularly with editing routes. I believe the problems have been resolved, but if you see any issues please email concerns

I link routes together (from MyRoutes menu item) when my route is either very long, or in more than one contiguous piece (I took a train in the middle of a trip to skip some area). Now when you display linked routes it doesn't just give you a summary link to each of the linked routes - but gives the map of the whole route, and any pictures stored for the linked (sub) routes..
