I would like to plan a route with multiple route points in advance and save the planned route to HERE Maps or HERE Drive+ Beta. Is that possible?
The route can be made with here.com webpage, but is it possible to import a route to my Lumia 920? When the route is saved to a collection in my nokia account, it is not shown in the mobile phone.
Phone: Lumia 920
Software: The newest
Solved! Go to Solution.
I used to use routes quite a bit with my N8. Unfortunately it is one of very few Here Drive + Beta is still lacking. However, Here Drive is still beta and I hope we will see it with the final release.
Till the time you get the functionality added, the work around is to save all the 'Route Points' to the collection which will appear under 'My Places' when you Sync with your device.. Then go on selecting in the desired order say from A to B.. once you reach B..B to C ..and so on ..
Sorry, I'd like to unresolve this. The workaround mentioned is not a solution.
I travel to loads of places by motorcycle, and going off the beaten track is wonderful. Since I upgraded My E6-00 and C7-00 to a Lumia 920, I'm back to allowing the SatNav (phone) to decide where I go. Boring dual carriageways and bypasses are now my natural habitat - bah humbug. Afterall, the phone is in my pocket (safe from weather), headphones in my helmet - I can't constantly look at a map. Having multiple 'favourites' and planning from one to the next isn't workable. Fair enough the Lumia 920 is usable with gloves on (major plus for a biker, come on you marketing people!) but I don't fancy re-routing all the time by the side of a road.
I'm also planning a charity cycle ride over 100s of miles this Summer, and while that can be done in BikeRouteToaster, Google Maps etc, there is no import function into 'HERE' that I can see. It's impossible to plan a route on the device itself. Yes it can route walker (I can't seem to get turn by turn working for that, but nevermind), public transport and car, I have an option to avoid motorways etc, but cycle route planning needs consideration for height metres, unpaved/paved roads (Google StreetView etc used a lot to find a Sustrans route is actually unfit for road bikes) etc. So.. Importing a route planned elsewhere (gpx, kml or something) would be a real alternative, or a workaround. Asking the device to do its own planning from one point to another really isn't workable.
Please make the Nokia's USP an actual USP again?
