Adding and using markers

How to add markers along your route

Use markers to make note of locations along your route. Markers are unique to the route that they are saved with and are indicated by a teal circle with a white icon in the center.

Adding markers

You can add markers by tapping the screen and selecting the Marker icon. Once you have created your route and markers, be sure to save your route. Markers are unique to the route they are saved with and will be cleared from the screen when you create a new route or open another saved route.

To create a marker anywhere on the map:

  1. Single-tap the map to pull up the menu.
  2. Select the Marker icon.
  3. Name your marker in the Title bar (Footpath will automatically detect and assign your marker an icon).
  4. Add any notes you want.
  5. Press Add Marker.

To create a marker along a route:

  1. Begin drawing a route.
  2. As you add to your route, you can create markers by selecting the Marker icon from the pop-up menu.

Keep in mind, your markers are associated with a saved route and will be cleared from your map view when you create a new route. Reopening your saved route will also bring back its corresponding markers.

Sharing routes with markers

When you share a route with markers attached to it, your markers will be visible along with your route. If the shared route is opened in a web browser, your markers will also be visible on the browser.

Tips and tricks

Sharing a single marker: If you want to open a marker in another app or share the location with a friend, you can copy its coordinates by opening the marker and tapping on the “Coordinates” bar.

Elite Keeping a marker on your map permanently: If you want your marker to remain on your map regardless of what route or map type you are looking at, you can turn it into a Favorite by selecting “Save to Favorites” in the marker screen. Favorites are searchable in the Footpath search bar and are private to you. Favorites are not shared when you share a route with someone.
