Don't know ''HowTo'' in Streets and Maps

Greetings,
We are planning to use Microsoft Street & Maps to develop delivery routes for the BoyScout troop delivery of Mulch this spring.
Using XP-Pro. We have figured out how to load our 1,000 delivery addresses and supplemental Text Balloon information. We have the following questions:
1. How can we add the imported locations into the route window on a mass basis? We know how to add Push-pin by Push-pin, but do not know how to add in mass.
2. How can we get the Text Balloon information to print on the Stip Maps? Can it be formatted?
3. Is there a maximum number of stops for a single route?

Welcome to Fixya! I actually have done the Same thing that you are trying to do with Streets when I was a Delivery Driver. Unfortunately Streets was not set up for Multiple Routes and Stops in the Amount that you are trying.After 6 Months of working with Microsoft on this Problem, I finally had to Break the Stops down and Enlarge them to a Certain Area. I wish that it was Easier also!

Tracks describe connections between two locations. Each track has a start and an end way-point where other tracks could be connected to.
Routes are a sequence of several tracks. You plan routes by adding tracks to its course. The distance of the route is the sum of the distances of all tracks consumed by the route.
Example: The route to my grandmas house is beautiful, I follow several tracks that go through woods and fields. At one way-point, two tracks are crossing where the other goes down to the valley. I have recorded the course with my GPS device for that you might try the same route one day. The recording is either a single track or a sequence of way-points. The problem with the latter is that the recording then misses any intermediate locations between two way-points. Therefore I send you the single track recording. You can import this into your TrailRunner document and merge the course with your existing tracks. TrailRunner will then split the track at locations where existing tracks overlap and at the same time update the routes course to use the resulting tracks.

Unlike pure journaling applications, TrailRunner has two modes. The route planning mode and the diary mode. These two modes are separated into the main window (with the primary focus on building a network of tracks to plan routes within) and the diary (with the main focus of archiving the raw data of recorded workouts). Even though seperated, TrailRunner still displays workout information for a selected route in the main window (if a related workout can be found in the diary).
Advice: When you import new workouts, make up your mind, if the workout course contains track segments you would like to add to your network of tracks. If so, use one of the merge options. If you (just) want to archive your workout in the diary, check the add diary option.
Tip: Unlike the main document, your diary is stored in a central location on your Mac. As you can have more than just one document, each of your documents could cover a different networks of tracks. For example you would like to have one document for your neighborhood and more for each location you where on holidays.
Additionaly, if you delete a route from the main document, it would not delete any workouts in the diary and vice versa. Both are a separate thing even though they might be related to each other.







During import of a GPS recoding, please note the following difference:
(a) A workout recoding is a recoding. Fixed as it is. You can import workout recordings into the TrailRunner diary and archive your workout there. You cannot modify workouts.
(b) On the other hand, TrailRunner lets you "copy" the geographical part of the recording and merge this into your network of tracks. During import of the geographical data, choose one of the Import options to merge the geographical information into your main document.
(c) During merge, TrailRunner will do two things, depending on the merge option you’ve chosen: TrailRunner will create at least one track that contains the geographical course. Additionally TrailRunner will create a route that makes use of that track. Geographically the route and the workout course are now almost identical. But it’s only the exact same course but nothing more. It’s a course that others, including yourself, might follow in the future.
Futher note: When you are new to TrailRunner this sounds more complicated than what you expect. But after you have imported more than one route you will notice that the courses might overlap and that you have locations where you made a left turn in the one recording and a right turn in the other recoding. When you plan third new route, you could either plan to follow this or that way. In theory you have an overlap and a crossing-point.

Error planning rout


I had this problem. There was a problem with the direction of a one-way street leading to my destination. I corrected it and then I could plan the route. Check the streets leading to your destination against a real map and correct ht e directoin where necessary.

Can t see street names


Are the maps unlocked? You need to enter a 25 digit keycode to unlock the maps, before you download them to the memory card. What size card do you have? This since there are issues with the 256 MB cards/SP3 that have been sold the last two years. Garmin Will replace these cards with two 128 MB cards

Add in dead-end streets?


You can add in a mapful of congestion/construction warnings for the existing map, using a CF card and some street & map program. Just use a generic prefix for the congestion so you can tell it's your note.

You should definitely send feedback to Garmin about how the streets end (maybe linking to a Flickr group full of pictures of how the streets are not passable,) so that they can update their maps. Speaking of that, you can also check that you have the current 'firmware' (and maps) for your city with their update tools.

What city did they not get good satellite photos of? Lucerne?

The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.
