Thanks to John and others for help in solving this.
Any other issues please email here.
We made a few improvements to the training logs and added some new types of routes last night. We tested these changes in advance but if anyone has any problems please email here. When you email please include the browser you are using and operating system.
You can now import and export GPX files for use with your Garmin or other Navigational device. The Import button is available in the “My Account” page. The Export Button is shown when you map a route.
The more observant of you may have noticed a few changes on the site today (including the introduction of the blog page). We’re testing them at the moment so it would be really helpful if you could let us know on this page if you have any issues.
We made a small change to the site recently. When you click the “Show Altitude Graph” we are now showing the minimum height, maximum height, total ascent and total descent. The altitude is always shown now when you print out your map.
We had a go a creating a “How to use Mapometer.com” video yesterday and came up with this. I don’t weigh 180 kilos really!
1. Go to this page
2. Find the location on the map of where you want to find routes. The search engine will work faster if you select a smaller area.
3. Adjust the slider bar to the distance you are looking for and deselect the route types you don’t need.
4. Press “New Search”
If you want to look in a different area you have to move the map, press “Change Search Criteria” and press “New Search” again. The search engine shows the routes that have been viewed the most first. With time this should improve the quality of routes shown first.
You won’t have seen many changes to Mapometer.com recently but we have been working on trying to get a user friendly search engine for finding routes. We still some time away from completing it but it is coming!
We made a few small changes to the site last night. In the “My Routes” list there is now a “searchable” box which defaults as checked. We are working on a way for people to search for and share routes which hopefully will be ready in a month or so. If you don’t want your route to be searchable simple uncheck this box.
If someone sends you a link with their mapometer route, you can now save it in your “My Routes” section.
