So if I wanted to plot a route between say Cambridge and Harwich, how would I get that on to the phone app?
Do I go onto onto one of the mapping website create the route using the mouse and then once I'm happy click on create GPx file?
Can I do this on a computer or do I have to do it on the handset?
Has anyone found an article that explains how to do it.... ideally in idiot proof terminology
If you use komoot then you plan on your desktop (or phone) and the route is automatically transferred to your phone. It's the most seamless way to plan a route. Try it for free then pay £30 for unlimited maps worldwide.
Or use the vastly superior Osmand but its not easy to understand.
Komoot is fundamentally flawed though. Its maps are small area but big to download and not half as detailed plus you can't add your own poi's such as campsites. Komoots routing isn't as good as using as cycle.travel and osmand. Komoots turn warning isn't as good as osmand
If, as you seem, you're not too good with tech then komoot is better and when you're used to it then it's fairly easy to plan in the fantastic cycle.travel, export the GPS track and then import it into komoot
If you are feeling you want to start with osmand then it's free.
