It's worth a go if you've got five mins. Just keep adding five mile chunks to the route, and see when it starts to struggle.

I've added the route using my phone. Painful but done. Now I guess I'll have to run it sometime.......

We also know that your phone has more memory than your iPad :-)

What made it painful on the phone?

Small screen, chipolata fingers, little yellow crosses being unintentionally dragged around - user issues I guess

I've made it so that the yellow crosses are only visible when you turn on the 'Amend' button (top left of map). This should make it a bit sturdier on low memory devices.

Anyone else having problems Adding a New Route today ?

It's working OK if you have the "Follow Roads" switched off ( ie it draws a straight line between click points ) but when switching on Follow Roads, nothing happens when you click at a location, apart from it centres the map where you've clicked but it doesn't draw a route from your initial start point and doesn't calculate the distance.

Will log a feedback, but wanted to check it wasn't user error, or a problem with some setting at my end.

Tried using both Chrome and Edge browsers on a Windows 10 laptop
