Just finally getting around to playing with your awesome program.

I have a suggestion and/or comment.....

I have used the website on quite a few occasions to create some awesome tracks using google maps. One of the very cool features of this site is the ability to select whether the track you create follows roads or if it should follow a straight line between points.

This is extremely helpful when following a marked forest road or two track as you can then zoom out quite a ways and then add another point and then your track will follow the road perfectly for many miles. It will even follow turns connecting the shortest route via road between the two points. This saves you a ton of time having to click points around many, many turns through the mountains. You could then go back and modify, label and tulip your route as needed.

For instance, I just created the same 28 mile track in gpsies in roughly 1/10th the time it took me in rallynavigator.

Just a suggestion. Awesome program. Thank You!
