    This is great! Easy to follow guide.

    One question, now that I've created a couple of routes, how do I delete them? I don't want to have them on my map all the time.

    Hi,

    To delete a route.

     

    Click the Trip Data icon trip_data_icon.png then tap List Tracks/Waypoints

    deleteRoute03.png

     

    Then, click the Options Icon save_icon_waypoints.png and select to display the Nearest Tracks

    Choose the route you want to delete and tap on it.

    Thank you.

     

    I hope this helps.

    Sigh - another thing I never noticed. The down arrow to get routes instead of waypoints. I just thot the routes would show up on the waypoint list.

    How do you get anything useful done when people like me ask all these dumb questions. I can't believe the service you provide. OUTSTANDING!!!!!

    I've just imported 35 track/waypoint files for a forthcoming vacation, but I don't want them cluttering up my screen when I go to either load an existing trip or create a new one. Ideally, they should be grouped under location in a sub-folder. Is it possible to do this and to be able to call them up in BCN without having to move them around with a file manager?

    I imported a large kml file with lots of waypoints, and maybe I got a little carried away. Is there a way to delete a large number of waypoints all at once, or do I have to delete the ones I don'twant one at a time?

    Hi,

    David, TRIP Files were created for that purpose.

     

    Herbert, deleting the trip file you saved it will do the trick.

    Thanks Dan, but best as I can tell, I seem to have imported the waypoints into the default trip database, and not a saved database. Probably not my best moment.

    Hi Herb,

     

    did you want to delete all the waypoints in the default trip file that you imported or a select few?

    You would have to manually delete them if you have imported waypoint data in the default trip database that you don't want deleted unfortunately.

     

    Thanks,

    Hopefully I've learned my lesson and won't repeat this again. I only need about 10-15% of the waypoints I imported, so I guess I'll just bite off bite-sized pieces and delete 10-20 at  time.

     

    As I'm just really starting to learn BN, I'm also just starting to learn Google Earth, so I now realize about setting up a subset of waypoints in Google Earth's My Places that I can then import into BN.

     

    I have to think if I'd even want to do it, but could I uninstall BN, and then reinstall it with a clean slate? I do have a few Pro version add-on maps though,

    Hi Herb,

    You can either delete the default trip and start from scratch (this way, it does not change any of the other settings you have in place, but would still clear your trip data) or you can uninstall it and start all over again but I think the former should work just fine.

     

    Thank you,

    Bear with me I am very New to the Program.  I have downloaded my waypoints from Google Earth via KML the waypoints do not have the names associated with them.  Did I do something wrong?

    thanks

    Hi Brad,

     

    When you say downloaded from Google Earth, you meant you got them from Google Earth and want to MOVE them to BackCountryNavigator?

    Did you try to IMPORT the .kml format waypoints via the app (BackCountryNavigator)?

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Dan,

    I've just subscribed to the Pro version after running the demo for a while.

    I would like to know if it's possible to display the coordinates of the centre cross hairs on the main map screen?

    I use this feature in other mapping apps for planning and identifying locations to plot tracks and routes to. This is generally done 'real time and on the road'. Being able to see the map and the co-ords at the same time would be very useful.

    Thanks and regards,

    Hi Graham,

     

    Have you tried pulling down the compass (just in case you didn't), the coordinates are there or do you really need the to be on the center of the crosshairs? I will need to make a request ticket for this.

     

    Thank you,

    Hi,

    As long as the GPS arrow icon is at the cross-hairs, the pop-up for the compass should track the cross-hair coordinate location. If the GPS location gets off-centered by scrolling the map, you’ll need to re-center it with the My Location button.
