I am aware that shared ExplorOz treks can be navigated from either “end”, however this feature isn’t available for private treks. I know many people use tracks to navigate, but I like that treks allow me monitor distances and times between Places. The pain is that I have to create two treks if I am retracing my steps (unless I am missing something). It would be a great feature if there was a choice of direction of travel on private treks. Is this being considered at all?

Hi Steve & Paula,

Well from the horses mouth (for those that do not know me, I am the app developer and business owner). I have been working on this however it is not as simple as it sounds. That is why I build each direction manually (well auto manually) when we publish a new ExplorOz Trek. The main reason is simply reversing the data, some is simply some is hard. Reversing the line, start point & end point are all easy but reversing guided turn by turn is not so easy to switch around - it has to be recreated. So the building of the trek place to place guidance needs to rebuilt in reverse for each leg and may not always go as you intended in an automatic way. So really if you intend to travel backwards as part of the trek I suggest you build it in as you build the plan place to place.

If you or anyone else can think of another way I am happy to receive feedback.

PS: It would be easy if the trek does not contain turn by turn data but I think that is what you are wanting to have in reverse.

Thanks David, I obviously didn’t understand the complexity of the task. I assumed that because it is available on the ExplorOz Treks that it would be the same for personal treks. Still loving the product and appreciate your responsiveness.
