If I plan a route from say Phoenix, AZ to Indio, CA; Road Trip gives me a route as if I were flying in an airplane. It doesn't follow any roads? Do I have to drag the route to the roads, time consuming!
Or is a preference in the Road Trip application that I missed?
I had this on my Garmin and set it back. Can't find the setting now.
I'll check the menus in Road Trip and see if I can find it.
Thanks for the reply.
If if follows the same general theme as MapSource, select Preferences from the Edit menu and then select the Routing Tab. "Use Direct Routes" will ignore roads, lakes, you name it and just draw straight lines from point to point. "Use Auto Routing" will follow the roads.
The same option in the Nuvi is to set for Off-Road mode.
Yup,on my version I went to Road Trip>Preferences> Routing Tab> and it was set to "no preference," I set it to follow highways. Too bad this application isn't like Google Maps, where you can set a start point, end point, then drag the route around to change it.
Maybe I'm missing something?
What you describe sounds like the Rout Tool. There is an icon with three green squares with lines connecting them, the last icon on the right. Give that a try and see if that helps.
I'm new to this as well so I apprecaited learning how to make sure my route keeps me squarely planted on the road
One would hope that it would reasonably follow the methodology of MapSource. In MapSource, after it calculates a route, you use the Arrow "Selection Tool" to drag the route segments to other roads. It's not that obvious, you have to click twice on the route segment that you want to "grab".
