Routing on the PC

Post by robbo12 »

When I Make a route on the PC (Windows 10) the calaulacted route is not on the road but parallel to it. This is something new Basecamp 2020.2 used to show the route correctly. any suggestions?

This often happens if you've accidentally rotated the map. Select the compass icon and rotate it so it points north, that should resolve it.

What sussamb said. Or Use the pull down menu: View / Align North Up.

I seem to do this more frequently than I like when I'm using the track pad on my laptop instead of a mouse.
