When you plan a Beeline route in Route Mode, your route will be plotted as a series of lots of waypoints. You can adjust these to tailor your route to one that suits you best.

You can also plot waypoints in Compass Mode if there are any specific places that you would like to pass through on your adventure.


First of all, what is a waypoint?

If you are planning a ride but you want to ride via certain places, or if you are going somewhere on the far side of a river, you may want to set a waypoint.

A waypoint is just a way of segmenting a journey. Once your destination is set you can either type your waypoints into the top search bar (that has 'via' next to it) or you can tap anywhere on the grey line to drop a pin on the map. Once your pin has been dropped you can click and hold on it to drag it to anywhere you like on the map.

Here is an example of using a waypoint:

You will enter your waypoints in the order that you would like to go to them. Enter each waypoint in the order that you would like to hit them. 

If you would like to go to Battersea Park via Fulham Palace, enter Fulham Palace first, then enter Battersea Park. If you would like to move your destination or waypoints after entering them simply press and hold on the pin and drag it to where you like. For example, you can move your Fulham Palace pin to Tate Modern if you so fancy.

On Route Mode, you will be given directions to your way points turn by turn, and on Compass Mode, the waypoint will be where the arrow is pointing until you either get to that location, or choose to skip over it. The ride is yours.
