My routes are not saving

When you create a route, press Save in the top right corner above the map.

You may be shown the information panel. If you are publishing the route you need to give the route a name, short description, long description and a type. The descriptions and name must be at least 10 characters long. Once you have completed the form, close the panel by pressing the OK button lower right.

You now need to press Save, top right above the map again, otherwise the route is not saved.

This does not affect private routes.

What is a short code stem?

A short code stem is unique to each route publisher. It allows a publisher to create a "shortcode" that can be used to help people to find a specific route within My.ViewRanger or through the ViewRanger app. Eg. TRL is the short code stem used by Trail Magazine, so that TRL0007 can be used as a short-hand way of finding the Trail route "Swaledale, Yorkshire Dales"
