More Updates to RouteFinder and Interactive Map

I finished the updates I was planning on making to the RouteFinder. (The first round of changes is found in this post.) Here is a summary of the changes:
  • Can now access your saved routes from My MNC under My Saved Routes. This is where you can delete the route. You can't change any routes here. If you want to make a change, you have to delete it and save another on the interactive map.
  • From My Saved Routes you can get a link you can send in an email or post on a blog. This "public link" will automatically load the route along with the summary information (distance and time). There will also be a link to the interactive map. This "public link" doesn't have a fully interactive map. However, you may want to use this since it is a slightly different display option than the interactive map.
  • On the interactive map, you can now get a link to the map that automatically loads the RouteFinder information. If there is a route showing when you press the Link to Map button, the link will include the route information. If you post this link, anyone following it will have your route automatically load the route. This is a change from the past - previously, the link would show the map exactly as it was except for the route information.
As always, if you have questions, suggestions, or comments, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment.
