    Default Map Wizard Tips & New Developments

    Click here to see the MAP WIZARD Page!

    ***If you need help, there is a special Map Wizard Support Address***

    map.wizard.support@roadtripamerica.com (the on-duty mapping staff person will try and respond within an hour or two. It could be as quick as a few minutes...)

    1. This is a good place to start – no registration is required.

    2. Routes are created between any two locations in Canada, the USA and Mexico.

    3. RTA Library RA’s (RoadTrip Attractions) can be placed on the routes automatically within either a 50 or 100 mile radius from the route.

    4. Maps can’t be saved unless users register – Only one route per map page will display.

    5. Due to the lack of defined roads, calculated routes rarely work in Greenland, although there are some RA’s in Greenland. And there are similar issues when creating some routes in the wilderness areas of Canada.

    6. There are very few Library RA’s in Mexico, but we’ll be adding new ones soon.

    7. How to Share Maps: Maps need to be saved, so you need to register, (if you’re not already a member). Make sure that the map you want to Share has been Saved! Click the button “View and Share Saved Map”, this opens a new page with your saved map and the private URL that you can use to send by e-mail or by any of the social media tools. We’ve put the most popular ones at the top of the page, Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, Google Buzz and an e-mail link. There is also a “Share with Friends,” icon (the green one) that enables another 50+ social media networks. If you find any issues with this, please post a bug report here.

    Default Kudos to RinkSide7 and Shelley

    There is a bug on both Map Wizard and the Map Center when using IE. Actually it's two different problems, but we are working on it right now. Both mapping tools work perfectly on the other browsers we've tested but not on IE.

    In both cases there is a problem with saving a calculated route

    These bugs are being tracked in the bug tracker posts here.

    Default Alert - alert -alert

    IF YOU SAVED A MAP ON THE MAP WIZARD PAGE BETWEEN 1400 HRS PST ON THE 29TH OF JANUARY UNTIL 1400 HRS PST ON THE 30TH....

    We're sorry, but those routes are lost.... We were working on another bug and a problem arose that we didn't see until today that prevented the save routine from running. It's fixed now and we apologize for any inconvenience.
