    Can you tell us if this is in the default map view or after creating a route or track?

    A couple of interesting cycle apps there Johan – do you know which routeing engine they use?

    Here is an example I encounter regularly. Although there are plenty of GPS track traces in available in OSM, Mapquest has very few. This suggests to me that the OSM/Mapquest “divorce” is the issue

    The A49 road has been around since Emperor Hadrian came to the UK (!) bus you can see PE routes southbound on this bypass but the northbound route, even with the addition of Control Points, does not recognise it

    I regularly submit tracklogs for this route but they never show up in the Mapquest displayed tracks on their website

    After a little more digging https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/MapQuest it would appear that PE and it’s current routing engine may have come up against a brick wall “MapQuest ceased offering an OpenStreetMap service (Open MapQuest) in 2015” What might that mean for PE going forward?

    I use an external BT GPS/tracklogger so this option is relevant for me and perhaps others

    I receive many Garmin gpx route files from members of our motorcycling group, so the ability to convert these into PE routes would be a major plus

    Surely there must be a program, app or website that can sequentially strip out all waypoints, via points and map points from a file and then submit them for conversion by the routing engine into a route?

    I’m not familiar with the Wikivoyage feature but what happens if you tap the top level result a second time?

    Yes, same for me – I assume it is a limitation of the webmap and one must guesstimate where the centre of the screen, and hence one’s position, is

    Thanks for that tip re iFunBox – very interesting and useful

    I use iMazing (and it’s sister app FileApp) and with it have now been able to locate and copy the UDB folder to my desktop

    Q.1 My UDB file has a “2” appended – what is that about?
    Q.2 You suggest that having reinstalled PE you then double tap to close the app before copying the UDB folder back to PE – why is that?
    Q.3 Why would the method you describe be used in preference to exporting the data as a Pocket Earth Archive to a mail program and then reimporting it when/if required?

    I suspect the OP has been able to import the .gpx file but now wishes to convert it from a track to a route – or maybe I misread him?

    Not sure why you are seeing this in TPE but the Auckland NZ bus data is still up and running

    It is an excellent and very practcal facility for both residents and visitors – I do wish it could be extended to our town here in the north west of England
