    Which Route Planning Software

    It used to be so easy. TYRE (Trace Your Route Everywhere) was so easy to use and downloaded easily to my old TomTom Rider sat nav.

    Now TYRE doesn't appear to work without some sort of Google account, I've tried looking elsewhere.

    TomTom has their own "best in the world" planning software but that is really difficult to use compared to TYRE and only downloads in .gpx format which my Rider doesn't recognise and if I convert the ,gpx file to .itn, it comes up with 1600 route waypoints which is too many for the sat nav. So this is useless.

    I can't seem to find anything else that is remotely user friendly.

    So what is out there that is easy to use to plan your own routes (not their "twisty" routes) and download in .itn?

    Thanks.

    I was introduced to MyRouteApp a couple of years ago.  It's a very comprehensive offering that allows you to share routes (I was touring with a large group) and crucially to set exactly your own route.  We used it with great success all over the Dolomites and since then pretty much anywhere.
    You can export the routes that you create but I just use Sygic, a satnav that works on my phone.  It's linked to MyRouteApp so that you select your route and then navigate.  Pretty straightforward.  It also has some nice touches like next available petrol  on your route, next parking etc. 

    The phone sits in a case and is plugged into a USB socket under the seat. Simples.

    That sounds like the kind of thing I was looking for, thanks!  :031:

     MyRouteApp is developed by the same guy that made tyre, so must be userfriendly.
    Stop making sense

    I guess it's like anything new; seems worse for a while because it's unfamiliar. I'm still not convinced but then I haven't used it much.

    Having just downloaded Sygic, I can't see how to import routes???  :027:

    The route is generated in MyRouteApp. You then just link straight through to Sygic. No export needed.

    This is a Hungarian language video route planning with igo.





    That's how I plan.

    HI, that looks interesting. Do you upload the plan to your Garmin/TomTom?

    Hello, first of all I don't have good English. Itn convertes knows many export formats.

    I don't know about garmint / Tom-Tom upload. Plan a simple route and see which format is good.

    Igo uses the .kml format and not the igo format.

    You may find the answer here.
