Although there appear to be many features in the trip calculator, there seems to be a glaring omission---the ability to change the route.

I tried dragging the 'route line' as one can do on Google Maps but that doesn't work.

There are many reasons why one might want to alter the route from the default one proscribed by trip calculator. The current ability to "add a destination" is one step, but it's completely inadequate.

Since it is impossible to search the forums except by author (what appears to me to be a virtually useless feature) I hope I have not missed this information elsewhere.

I think in addition to changing routes can you make it to where we can put our own fuel stops in and put a check box for pulling a trailer

I gave up on the Trip Calculator as pretty worthless as currently implemented. There was a good thread recently, I think with some good suggestions for enhancing this area.

Hello rmwpg13,

Thanks for your email.

The only suggestion we can provide you with at this time using the current map set up is to utilize the "Add a destination" option to alter your route.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
