Computer Aided Route Planning

Tues 28th Mar

The intention is to provide worked examples of route creation using some of the different route creation software packages. Whether a created route is transferred to a device, printed as a map or a turn sheet – the principles of route creation are the same.

What we also intend to do is show how routes can be shared between individuals and how to transfer routes to and from a device.

Heather Sim’s son Simon has been approached and agreed that we can use the facilities at Grange Park School, Borough Green Rd, Wrotham, Sevenoaks TN15 7RD. The school has Wifi and so you can bring laptops or other devices in order to work through demonstrations.

The event on Tuesday 28 March starting at 5 pm. Tea Coffee and biscuits will be available courtesy of Heather and Cathy

A charge of £2 will include refreshments and enable us to purchase something for the staff as a way of thanks for the use of the facilities.

The session will end at 7pm anyone wishing to retire for further discussion at the local hostelry will be welcome.

If you have any issues with route creation or file sharing do come along. If you haven’t already given your name to me (eMail ref No 125) or Ken Dean (No 2) let us know.

    Ken, Heather
    Sadly, I can’t make this due to prior Tuesday commitments. I should like to have been able to join you.
    I hope the evening is a success.
    May be an attendee could give me a personal briefing at some time afterwards.

    I couldn’t make it to the last Garmin session so would like to come to this one. At the moment I own one but don’t know much about how it works. Bit like a kidney.

    A Garmin “educational” is a splendid idea, thank you.
    I am keen to attend.
    You may know that I am a regular user (Etrex 30) but am not up to date with more modern models, nor do I have any expertise beyond what I managed to gain just to do what I need – so I’m definitely a student, not a teacher!
