dynamicWatch's Route Planner is a free tool that lets you create hiking, running and cycling routes for your Garmin GPS in a fast and simple way. Although the priority for Planner is to keep it simple, we have added a few advanced tools for dynamicWatch Premium users, such as heatmaps of your routes.
A heatmap lets you view all the routes in any of your Route Collections (collections are one of the most useful features of Premium) as a transparent orange overlay on the map while you work in Planner. These then act as a guide for which roads and trails you like to use: you can rapidly click to build routes using these same roads/trails -- or perhaps for variety you'll use them to find roads that you've not yet used in a route.
Just click the red button near the top-left of Planner. You will need to have created at least one collection and added some routes to it. The Bulk Edit menu can be really useful for that.
Upgrade to Premium now and make creating routes for your Garmin with Planner even faster!
