How do I add to my route in Route Manager?

Post by MadCheshire13 » May 24 2016 10:39 pm

I just used Route Scout for the first time with my phone and it died roughly 2.5 miles from the trailhead. The trail was an out and back and I would like the full distance logged. Can I add the remaining distance? If so how? I tried adding tracks under the edit mode but I can't seem to get anywhere. It just zooms out and my mileage doesn't change. :(

Since it's an out-n-back the end of the hike can be cloned from the beginning. I'll message you the stats and how it's done.

Also you will get more battery life if you use Route Scout in Airplane Mode on your phone. If you weren't...

@JasonCleghorn
Haha, I thought of that when we finished the first half! It worked great but I thought turning on airplane mode would turn off GPS like everything else. By the time I hit airplane mode my phone was at 48%.
