Route Planner 2.0 !

I’m pleased to announce the release of the new version of the Marengo GPS Route Planner.

It’s full of great new features, including:

  • Save and load routes to/from the central route database
  • Easy sharing of your route(s) with anyone
  • Import and export GPX files without copying and pasting
  • Geocoding (location searching) including most UK place names
  • Mouse wheel zoom in/out
  • A dedicated “zoom” window
  • Smart new 2.0 look
  • Better browser compatibility – tested on Firefox, Opera, Safari, IE6 and IE7.
  • No advertisements taking valuable map space

This version is kind of commercial: there’s a minimal PayPal donation required per annum for the ability to save routes on the Marengo servers. The first 30 days are free and without commitment. This gives you a chance to make sure that you think the new version is worth donating to!

You can get your login here:

If you want to continue using the free version, it’s not a problem – it’s not going away.

I’m announcing this release here first as a kind of limited beta – I’d appreciate feedback on any comments or problems you may have with this release.

  1. Hey hey! Your route planner has already saved my ass on two brevets, a 200k and 300k. I’m about to use it for a 400k in two days. Congrats on releasing a new version!

  2. Have you seen (another route planner site)?

    Comment from Martyn: yes, I have, and prefer mine! As I have spent ages on mine, I prefer not to advertise the others. Hope you do not mind me editing your post.

  3. I don’t have a problem with you editing my posts — it’s your web site! Both your site and (the other one) have their pluses & minuses — one thing that might be nice for you to implement would be the “browse to file” way of uploading a GPX file, rather than having to paste it in…

  4. duh

    I should have had a proper go with the new one before suggesting features…

  5. A really, really nice feature would be routing along available roads/curves. Especially here in MA (USA) along tiny roads it’s really hard to tell if you’re on the right road without the system following routes. I end up with dozens and dozens of way points which are often shifted slightly off the actual intersection and the distance is way off because of the twists and turns in the actual road that would be even more confusing to place waypoints on.
