Route Mileage / Nav 3

Nav 3 help! I'm thinking about doing a 1,000 or 1,500 mi ride and want to get accurate mileage so I don't come up short. After creating a route in MapSource, how do you get the route mileage to calculate? I have had the Nav 3 for over a year and not figured it out. It’s probably simple, but I am missing it.

Re: Route Mileage / Nav 3

Mapsource displays the miles of the route. Click on the route tab you'll see name, length (in miles) and time. Also, you can Right Click on the name of the route, then click properties, then directions you can see distances between via points.

Just Go

Re: Route Mileage / Nav 3

Thanks, although when I click on the route tab in Tools or the Route icon nothing appears regardless of right or left click.
