I have today (25th May 2019) completed work on what I believe to be a great and useful new feature the 'Custom Trip Builder'

This feature allows you to draw a trip on the map, but this map is overlayed with all the great routes from the BBR database.

Kind donations from sponsors have paid for this feature, so it is only available to site sponsors.

If you would like to take a look at this cool new feature, please see here

Beta Custom Trip Builder

I hope you like it.

If you would like to support more new features, please consider becoming a sponsor.

Many Thanks

David

Hi David,

Will the new trip builder allow us export/download gpx/itn files to our devices?

Regards,

Leigh

Hello Leigh,

Yes is the short answer :)

The trip builder works in a very similar way to the add route feature, except with the great enhancement that the map is overlayed with all the great routes from the BBR database.

You create a trip however you want by clicking on the map to create a route, the trip builder does not oblige you to follow the best routes, you can decide for yourself.

Basically I tried to design it in the way that I thought would be most useful and flexible to users.

After the trip is built and saved, it is private to you and a gpx file can be downloaded of the trip to use on your device.

At this time, the feature is only available to site sponsors as google are now charging for map usage and I need more revenue to build this feature out and add more improvements in the future.

I hope you like it.

All the Best

David
