Create a new Route/Itinerary

Here below we will try to describe the available tools for the scope.
A new Route/Itinerary means a collection of Tracks, Markers, Routes and Photos to be stored into a single file (GPX, KML or KMZ) that can be transferred to any modern GPS device. This file will be generated by the system and archived in your User Area with the name you defined (automatic numbering will be applied in case of duplication).
Once the file is saved you will be able to download it, share on the major social networks or load into your Terra Map ("Import from your GEC Account").

From this view you can perform all below activities, once a button is pressed it will turn to "orange" and the function will be active until you press it again or press another button:

Add a new marker on the screen. Once you added a new Marker you will be able to assign a name,a description, change the icon and add a photo. You can change them anytime until you will save the current new Route/Itinerary.
Digitize a new Route on the screen. Click on the map to place the next Route's waypoint (this will be represented by an icon showing a progressive numbering, the distance from the previous waypoint, the total distance and the kompass angle from the previous waypoint). A popup dialog will be open to help you while digitizing the route . This dialog will help you Undo the last point, Redo the last undo, Save or Cancel the digitalization. Once you added the new Tour you will be able to assign a name, a description and a color. You can change them anytime until you will save the current new Route/Itinerary.
Digitize a free line on the screen. This will be stored as a track into the final file.A popup dialog will be open to help you while digitizing the route . This dialog will help you Undo the last point, Redo the last undo, Save or Cancel the digitalization. Once you added the new Tour you will be able to assign a name, a description and a color. You can change them anytime until you will save the current new Route/Itinerary.
Using this tool you will be able to change the Markers, Routes and Tracks position or shape (also adding new intermediate waypoint). Select the object and drag it to the new position. Only items belonging to the new Route/Itinerary can be modified.
Pressing this icon you will enter the "Split" functionality. This can be used to split a linear feature (Track or Route) into two separate objects. First select the feature you would split, then click on the position you want the splitting.
Pressing this icon you will be able to join two or more line objects together (they must belong to the same type: route or track).
Reverse lines. Once this tool is active, select any line to reverse its points order.
This tool will permit to copy features (Markers, Photos, Tracks or Routes) from other archived files. Once this icon is selected it will open a File Manager dialog from which you can hide/show existing files on the map (click on the checkbox). The map will be splitted in two, the upper part showing existing files selected and the lower part showing your new Route/Itinerary. At this point click on objects from the Upper map to add/remove them from your new Route/Itinerary.
Pressing this button you will be able to delete any object of your new itinerary. There is not an Undo function, so be careful while removing objects.
Save, store in your archive and close the editing session of your Route/Itinerary. Type the name of the file (in case of duplication a progressive number will be added) and chose the format GPX or/and KMZ/KML you want to save.

In general a new Route/Itinerary can be modified only until you Save it. You can modify name and description of all its items, but remember that duplicated names are not allowed for items of the same type (Marker, Route, Track) within the same file, so the system might automatically rename them when you propose a duplicated name.

NOTE: to modify an existing Route/Itinerary file you can select it from the file manager, right click and select "Edit as new itinerary" from the context menu.
