Goal of merging routes
Sometimes you created or tracked two or more separate routes, but you want to make a complete, large new route from these separate routes. That's what you can do with the "Merge routes"-module in the RoutePlanner. The "Merge routes"-module allows you to select any of your routes and any of the public route on RouteYou and combine them in the RoutePlanner to a new route. The functionality is a part of the MyRouteYou Plus account (or higher). You can always try it for free!
How does it work?
Please note! For now, this feature only works on the Old RoutePlanner and not yet in the default RoutePlanner. Find out how to activate the old route planner here!
- Start the RoutePlanner via Create/Route.
- (1) Activate the module "Merge routes" via the "More options"-module (left)
- The map area shows the familiar RouteSearch functionality. It allows you to search for any public route on RouteYou and also the private routes you are allowed to see.
- (2) Select any route in the list (right) or on the map by clicking on it. (3) The route is added to your Merge Route-list (left). Repeat this action as many times as needed to select multiple routes.
- (3) The "Merg route"-module (left) allows you to change the order of the individual routes. The end of route 1 will connect with the beginning of route 2,...
- (3) The "Merg route"-module (left) allows you to change the direction of each route.
- (4) Go back to the "Plan your route". You will see that the several routes are merged before your eyes. Save your route and you are done!
Some advanced stuff
Inverting a single route
Although there is a more simple method to invert any routes directly via the RoutePage you can also use this module "Merge routes" to get that result. This is how you can do this:
- Just select that specific route (only one, not a second route).
- In the Merge route list (left) you will see the icon . Click on this to invert the route. You will see that next to the title you get the message (inverted).
- Go to the "Plan your route module"
Respect the work of others. If you get inspired for a big part by one route or several routes of an author, it is recommended and polite to refer to that author and route in your description. Read more about copyright on this page.
