Changes made from version 2.32 to 2.40: (released 11/19/2002)

  1. Added support for adding and removing via points. The Routes menu now contains a "Via Point" entry for adding and removing via points to/from the active route.
    Via points are intermediate destinations that will be reached on the way to the final destination. They may also be used to modify the active route to select an alternate path. New via points are selected from the map or the Find menus. A route can have up to 100 via points in it. Only the last via point in the route can be added or removed. In other words, removing a via point always deletes the last via point, and via points are always inserted after any existing via points. After adding or removing a via point, the active route is immediately recalculated.
  2. Preserve via points when recalculating a route.
  3. Added the ability to select the turn shown on the Next Turn page by using the UP and DOWN direction keys during route navigation. When the page showing turn information is displayed by selecting a turn from the Current Route page or pressing the SPEAK key, the DOWN key will change the screen to show the following turn. Similarly, the UP key will show the previous turn.
  4. Fix drawing of topographic lines in parks.
  5. Improved the "Turn Review" page map processing to update the next turn quicker when turns are close together.
