Do you have a route without a cuesheet? Perhaps you uploaded a route file sent to you by a friend, or you downloaded a GPX file of a route from another website, and now you have a route, but no cuesheet. This article will teach you how to use the Trace tool, available to Premium subscribers, to create a cuesheet for a route that does not have one.

Pro Tip:You can also use the Trace tool to make changes to the start/finish of a loop route, or if you want to plan a route that uses some features from an existing route. Simply bring up the route outline as usual, and then use it as a guide while you plan your route.

  1. First, you’ll need to get your route into Edit Mode.
    Click EDIT when viewing your route to open it in the Route Planner
  2. In the left panel, go to EDIT > PREPARE FOR TRACING.
  3. This will cause the red track line to turn grey meaning it is in the background and ready to trace.
  4. Select FOLLOW ROADS in the right side panel.

    This will ensure that the track line snaps to roads as you click along the route.

  5. Trace the route by clicking along the grey path. Be careful to avoid clicking on intersections, since this can cause errors in the cuesheet.
  6. You can trace the grey path exactly, or make changes to the route as desired.

    If you are tracing a loop, you can start your traced route anywhere along the grey path. You are not required to begin at the original start location or finish at the original route finish.

  7. After you’ve traced your route, click SAVE on the left side panel.
  8. A pop-up will prompt you to update the name, description, and other details about the route and click UPDATE or SAVE AS NEW.
  9. After your route has been saved, a pop-up will appear alerting you your route has been saved. Click VIEW YOUR ROUTE.

Congratulations! You now have a complete route with a cuesheet!
