Drag Route

  • Updated

We leverage the power of HERE maps to take care of the actual routing during the trip planning process but sometimes you might not like the route provided -- so RV LIFE Trip Wizard lets you drag the route to go where you want. Please note, however, that this will override the selections in your Trip Preferences. Here is an example of how to use the Enable Drag feature. 

Suppose you were headed through Missouri on your way to Omaha, Nebraska:

Click the Drag Route button in the upper left portion of the map to make the route draggable.

The Drag Route button will appear dark red when active (to view your route without showing campground icons and other points of interest, click Show Entire Trip next to the Drag Route button -- this will give you a clearer view of your entire trip route). From here, move your cursor over your existing route -- a white dot will appear. Move this dot to the intersection of two roads, click (and hold) the mouse button and drag to adjust your route. This adjustment will also appear as a Waypoint in your list of stops.

Let's say you don't like your new route and would prefer to return to the previous one. That's easy. To undo your drag and return to the previous route, simply click the Trash Can icon next to the Waypoint you wish to delete in the Trip Drawer. The Waypoint will disappear and your previous route will be reinstated. Once you are finished with your newly adjusted route, be sure to click the Drag Route button once again to deactivate it.
