How to track a trail and come back to the starting point?

Postby fendleroc » Tue Mar 14, 2006 6:24 pm

Hello,

I'd like to hike and track my trail then to come back to my starting point. How can I do it. I've red the manual but too clumsy to use it I guess!

Set Destination?

Did you figure it out?

I'm testing the Demo right now, and it looks like an awesome program. The main thing that brought me to pathaway, was I was looking for a tracking program that Screenblanks.

I've installed maps and callibrated and it all works great so far. However, I still haven't figured out the compass part.

- How do you set a destination?
- It would be great if you could set a destination by clicking on the map and setting one. I imagine his is how most hikers would use it.

thanks for any info.

How to set a destination

Postby StuBee » Tue Mar 21, 2006 11:09 pm

Looks like the concept of setting a destination is a route based one.
So to go from where you currently are back to the start would be:
======
Tracking Method:
- Options -> Tracks -> select the current track -> Edit Points
- Select the first point -> Add to Route -> Navigate to selected point
======
Map Method:
- Click a point on the map
- Choose Add Route Pt -> New Route -> Navigate to Selected point.
======

Pretty awesome proggie. Gonna buy today. Looking forward to nicer weather for hiking.

Another bad point not for pathaway but my pda, the screen isn't very bright and not readable when sunny. For the autonomy, i just add an outside 12v lead acid battery.
