New Ride Planner Website Questions

The Ride Planner website has been updated and changed fairly significantly. I can't find a manual for the updated site. Does anyone know the website for an updated user manual or instructions?

I have planned a new ride to the Route-66 Rally in Depew OK. I can't find how to convert intermediate locations into waypoints. Without converting these locations into waypoints, I get multiple routes rather than one long route.

Any direction is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

I searched and searched on the ride planner to get those to show up as one route, but never could make it. Though I did figure out from another thread on here about editing the .gpx file so that it would upload correctly into the nav. I successfully created, edited, uploaded and followed a route I made this past weekend. Its a bit tedious but not terribly difficult, maybe it will be corrected on a future ride planner update.

I put in my starting point, click next. Then I enter end destination, click create ride. It creates the ride.
Down in the bottom left corner of the screen there's a place to add locations. I enter another point somewhere in between my start and end. it adds those in. Can add as many as I want. They are all on one long map. Then I save it and turn it into a GPX file which I download to a USB thumbdrive and then upload to the bike...

Watch www.lawabidingbiker.com. They had the best tutorial out there for the old ride planner. They said they will be coming out soon with an update. They pulled the old one.

Yes, agreed. That is pretty simple. The problem is when I upload to the bike's GPS. Mine does not upload a complete route from start to finish if you add intermediate places. It seems like there a a bunch of routes now in the GPS between each of the intermediate places. If I add only milestones between the start and finish it uploads OK.

I wonder if it is a problem with how I am uploaded the route.......... -Thanks

Their old how to tutorial. Since the MOCO changed it all up it's no longer relevant. If you go there and look for a tutorial and find it you will know it's for the new ride planner.

Its not you, its the way the ride planner site writes the .gpx file. This is an excerpt from a .gpx I created on the ride planner website. If you've ever looked at html code it reads very similar.

<rte> This tag signals the start of a route
<name>Lynchburg Loop</name>
<rtept lat="34.77336655444663" lon="-86.74910811105937"> This tag is the latitude and longitude of the route start
<name>939 Capshaw Rd NW, Madison AL, 35757</name>
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept> this tag signals the end of the route point
<rtept lat="34.87634155109759" lon="-86.83319806226395"> this starts a new point
<name>22166 E Limestone Rd, Toney AL, 35773</name>
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept> this ends the point
</rte> this tag signals the end of the route
<rte> this starts a new route
<name>Lynchburg Loop 2</name>
<rtept lat="34.87634155109759" lon="-86.83319806226395"> this is the lat and lon of the route start, notice it is the same as the end of the last route
<name>22166 E Limestone Rd, Toney AL, 35773</name>
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept>this is the end of the point
<rtept lat="34.97323643514607" lon="-86.84017213160699"> second point
<name>29140 AL-251, Ardmore AL, 35739</name>
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept>end of second point
</rte> end of second route

You can edit the file to include more than two points in a single route.

We can take the same excerpt and change it

<rte> route start
<name>Lynchburg Loop</name>
<rtept lat="34.77336655444663" lon="-86.74910811105937"> first point start
<name>939 Capshaw Rd NW, Madison AL, 35757</name>
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept>first point end
<rtept lat="34.87634155109759" lon="-86.83319806226395"> second point start
<name>22166 E Limestone Rd, Toney AL, 35773</name>
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept>second point end
</rte> delete this line
<rte> and this one since we havent ended the first route we dont need to start a second route
<name>Lynchburg Loop 2</name> delete this line, it is naming the second route
<rtept lat="34.87634155109759" lon="-86.83319806226395"> delete these next four lines, they were the beginning of the second route and
<name>22166 E Limestone Rd, Toney AL, 35773</name> it is a duplicate of the last point
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept>
<rtept lat="34.97323643514607" lon="-86.84017213160699"> this now becomes the third point of the route
<name>29140 AL-251, Ardmore AL, 35739</name>
<sym>Waypoint</sym>
</rtept>
</rte> this now ends the first and only route

Don't you find that when you do this, the bike's GPS often picks a different route between the locations that the Ride Planner shows? My understanding is that the only way to force the bike to follow the exact route you want to take, is to basically add a new location immediately after a turn e.g. if you want to ride up highway A, then turn right on Highway B, you need to add a location just east of the Highway A&B intersection, and so on... have you found that to be true as well?
