How to view routes
RouteGadget is quite intuitive and easy to use. It has its own set of instructions, but here’s a short summary to give you a quick start:
First you need to select an event from the clubs menu.
You can move the map around by pressing and holding down the left mouse button somewhere on the map while moving the mouse in the desired direction. You can change the scale by clicking on the + or - buttons.
To view a race animation, you need to ‘Choose class/course’ select the course you want to view.
Next, ‘Choose competitors’ whose routes you would like to view. Select up to 10 people who have drawn their route (those with a * at the start of the name).
To start the animation, press ‘View animation’ button, select ‘Mass start’ option (on by default), and press ‘Start’ button. Small squares representing the different competitors should start from the triangle.
During the animation you can move and zoom the map. You can also increase/decrease the animation speed with ‘Speed+/Speed-’ buttons.
You can also view the competitors’ routes, splits, and comments by clicking on ‘Show route’. “Smooth scaling” improves the quality of the image when you zoom out.
