A new Duplicate Route button instantly copies all of the stop locations and settings from an existing route into a new Route window.
This feature is helpful if you want to:
Change settings such as Route Options or Arrival/Departure to generate a different route for the same group of stop locations and then compare the results. For example, changing the Route Type from Practical to Shortest may generate a different route as may changing Toll Roads* from Allowed to Discouraged. (Tolls available for Premium only)
Add or delete stop locations without changing an existing route.
Compare multiple routes with different stops or settings to find the best one or to see the effect different settings have on the route.
The My Account page has been updated so that PC*MILER Web users who are paying quarterly or annually will now be directed to PC*MILER Support to make changes to their account.
Fixed a bug in Arrival/Departure where Depart at... or Arrive by... would automatically toggle to Depart now after the Use Traffic box was checked. (Defining a Departure or Arrival Date/Time is available for Premium only)
