Car: Set two or more waypoints. The set map provider (the default map will depend on your country or region) will calculate the best route for a vehicle.

Railway: Set two or more waypoints. The set map provider (the default map will depend on your country or region) will choose the nearest available transport route. 

Walking: Set two or more waypoints. The set map provider (the default map will depend on your country or region) will suggest a trajectory in walking pace.

Note: SatGen 4 will automatically apply a default target speed depending on the selected Routing mode.

Adding Waypoints

Click on a location on the map to add a waypoint. The waypoints you add will be recorded in the Route Summary. You can add as many waypoints as you wish and change the routing mode to adjust the directions and speed between the waypoints. You can double-click on a waypoint in the summary to select that waypoint and see the Waypoint's Latitude, Longitude and Delay.

The simulated route will be represented by a solid line and the guide route (the lines joining up the points) will be represented by a dashed line. 

You can pan the map by using either the left or the right mouse buttons.
