How to save a route on the GO App (Android)?
Tomorrow is my first big ride of the year, and the first time I've needed to use TomTom Go Android on the bike since this later version of the software was released.
I have to do 560miles tomorrow, and I jsut sat down to programme the out journey including many small scenic routes through mountainous regions. I have no interest in using the apps 'fastest route' or any other route profile. For these trips I need to set up completely custom routes, something the previous version of the software was very good at doing.
But now with this new monstrous carbunkle of an app called v3.0/3.1, I simply cannot see how to save a route any more. I've set up a complex route with 30 waypoints, and I need to save it, so that I can then set up a seperate route home with a similar complexity as save that for the return trip later in the day.
But with this crazy app, I can't save any routes. I can load routes I made with a previous version, but I can't save new routes any more. This is madness.
Someone at TomTom simply doesn't understand how some of us have used this software for years.
If I don't have a route planned in the app, hitting the settings button takes me to a greyed out "Current Route" which, in previous versions, would not be greyed out if a route was planned, and in which there was a further menu where I could select to name and save my route for later use.
With this more recent release of the software, once a route is planned, hitting that same settings button brings up a different pop-up menu over the map, with only limited functionality, and NO Current Route or Sasve Route option.
Are you kidding me? Which idiot passed thsi software for release?
Can someone please tell me how to save a complex route on the APP. I have zero interest in using the desktop software to save simple routes, so don't bother mentioning that.
Is it possible to reconfigure the menu settings so I can get at the main settings menu with the 'Current Route' option AFTER I have computed a route, and therefore at the only time when anyone would ever want to use this function which has been made impossible to access in the current version?
I am entirely p!ssed off with this, as Tomtom go has been my goto software for complex bike routes for years.
As it stands now it is entirely useless to me.
Oh and while I'm here, the newer versions of the software crash when I am trying to set up complex routes, and are soooo much slower at screen drawing as I try to zoom around and choose waypoints to make those routes.
Someone at TomTom needs to lose their job immediately and be replaced by someone who knows what they are doing. I have been watching this software get worse and worse over the last year or so. It has now reached the level of a basic navigator, not the powerful tool it once was.
