You can create custom lists to organize your routes exactly how you want.
Plan out trips, organize routes by activity, or keep tabs on routes you’ve completed.
To create a custom list:
By default, all of your saved routes will appear in the main “My Routes” list. Routes cannot be removed from this list without removing the route from all other lists.
There are two other default lists that will update automatically as you save more routes:
You can add a route to a list in multiple ways:
Once you’ve added routes to a custom list, you can tap the “Sort” button at the top to sort by:
You can tap the “Edit” button and use the drag handles on the right to manually reorder the list of routes.
The default lists, including the “My Routes” list, will automatically show the most recently saved route at the top and cannot be manually sorted.
You can color code routes in a list by tapping the “Edit” button, selecting a route, and then tapping “Color” at the bottom.
You can tap on the pencil icon next to a color in this list to rename the meaning of the color in the list.
This can be useful if you want to color code routes by difficulty, or if you want to color alternative routes differently from a main route.
Note: This feature is currently only available on iOS.
You can view all routes in a custom list on a single map using the “View Map” button at the top.
This can be useful when combined with the “Color” function described above.
You can tap the “Share List” button to share a link to your list. Other Footpath users can open this link and add the list directly to their Footpath account. Users who do this will receive any changes you make to the list.
Some good uses of list sharing would be:
You can also export a list as a GPX file using the “Share List” button.
You can create a GPX file in any of the following formats:
Some apps and websites do not support GPX files with multiple routes, so you may need to experiment with the best format for the app or website you are trying to export to.
Exporting a list as a GPX file can also be useful if you need to bulk export your routes from Footpath.
