 What is a Route and how do I use it on my eXplorist
Article A Route is also known as a "Multi-leg Route", a "Point-to-Point Route" or a "Waypoint Route". The easiest way to understand a multi-leg route is that it will guide a user from point A to point B, from point B to point C and so on. An example in the real world would be a fisherman that has marked 2 favorite fishing holes on a lake and goes back to the lake and uses the GPS to take him from spot B to spot C. The following steps will guide you to create a route on your eXplorist GPS.
