MapSource can generate a route from one location to one or more waypoints, addresses, intersections, or Points of Interest. MapSource shows routes as colored lines on the Graphic Map. Routes you select in the Routes tab or on the Graphic Map are highlighted in yellow and include arrows to show the direction of the route.
After you have created a route, you can use the Route Properties window to edit the route by adding, removing, or changing the order of the points along the route.

Route Tips:
  • You can create routes in MapSource or transfer them from a Garmin GPS device.
  • The points within a route are called called Vias. See Editing Route Properties for more information.
  • In addition to auto-routes (routes that follow streets and highways), MapSource allows you to create direct routes (straight line, "as the crow flies" routes). See Setting Route Preferences for more information.
  • MapSource generates a list of directions for each route. You can view and/or print this list by clicking the Directions tab in the Route Properties window. See Editing Route Properties for more information.
  • Routes appear in the Routes tab on the left side of the screen. You can save routes in a file on your computer. See Saving Your Data for more information.

Raul, this was informative... however it seems that all the links go to your hard drive files and are not URL's ??? Is there a pointer to the online doc you were referring to? thanks.
