Hello, Is there anyway to increase the thickness of the route/track displayed on a map? I sometimes find it a bit hard to pick out. Kind regards,

Good idea. I'd like to make the colour user configurable too.

Thanks TallPaul. Any enhancements of that nature that you can make would be great. Regards,

These previous comments are a year old, but it doesn't look as if TallPaul has had time to do this yet. I would also love to be able to increase the thickness of the route lines on the map - I take a screen shot of the page and add it to my digital photo album of the walk and the route line is currently rather thin.
Yours hopefully....

My apologies: I'd not added this to the "to do" list. Anyway, now done and it's on the live system. Here's a screen shot of it in action where I've just changed the track1 colour to a rather lurid green and made it a lot wider.
