The dynamicWatch Route Planner brings our dwMap Premium users two additional options for automatically creating routes. We are using the service to offer additional options for road cycling, hiking and mountain biking. GraphHopper uses the comprehensive worldwide OpenStreetMap database of paved roads, unpaved roads and paths to create the best routes specifically for those activities. Just click on two points on the map in our Planner and the best route between them is instantly calculated.
The Graphhopper options are:
- Touring Cycling: Quieter roads, fewer hills, less direct routing.
- Fast Cycling: Busier, more direct roads with no concern for hills.
- Mountain Bike: Unpaved roads and paths where possible.
- Hiking: Paths wherever possible.
The free version of the dynamicWatch Route Planner offers cycling and hiking routes using Google Maps only.
All this can be done from your phone or tablet just as easily as on your computer, and our dwMap and routeCourse app on your Garmin watch or Edge cycling GPS will download the new route automatically and wirelessly.
