Excellent site.    Is there a way to add waypoints from a touchscreen (e.g., ipad)?    I put in my start and finish points and get a route, but then I'd like to be able to adjust the route slightly, but can't seem to find a way to do so via touchscreen.    The app interprets touches as changes to start or finish.    And I seem unable to touch the route, hold and then move as I can with a mouse on a laptop screen.    Many thanks.

In the medium term there'll be a proper app, but until then, the easiest way is:

  1. click on a section of your existing route;
  2. in the little bubble that appears, click 'Add via point';
  3. drag the via point from the existing route to wherever you want it

OK, thanks Richard.    I'll experiment.    Again, an excellent site.    Thanks.
