Background routes

When you select a route in TrailRunner mini, the course is displayed in the map. But sometimes you may want to permanently display the route in the map, e.g. for planning alternatives or by making them visible as your path to follow when using RaceBunny while you are on your way biking or hiking.

You either flag a route by selecting the flag in the right information area or by selecting the flag in the left list of routes:

How can I edit an imported route

Problem: You have imported a course recording and want to edit the course.

Files imported in the format GPX, KML, TCX or FIT are typically recordings. These recordings are immutable in a way that they contain many recorded points with no logical connection to the OpenStreetMap network that underlies the TrailRunner mini routing editor.

So when you try to edit such a route, TrailRunner mini gives you the option to create a routable approximation of the route by guessing good transit locations that resemble the original as much as possible. You can even choose to display the original recording as a background route to compare and make corrections to the approximation.

If you prefer to retrace the imported route from scratch you may also mark the imported route as flagged and start creating a new route. Flagged routes are always visible in the background. Then manually place and move your transit pins as needed.
