“No matter if I’m on my dirtbike or my sled, Waypoints are crucial for me to mark, save, and share my rides. Plus, they’re great for planning group rides, too.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Route Builder isn’t snapping to the road or trail I want it to. How can I change where it connects to?
  • Select “Undo” to revert to your previous point in your Route. Then, try moving your cursor around the map to highlight different trails. When it’s the Route you want to snap to, click to drop a point. 

Another option is to edit by toggling to “Point Draw.” This will disengage snap-to-trail and allow precise control by dropping points that connect via a straight line between.

What is the difference between building Routes on desktop vs. mobile?

Route Builder can be used across devices. For the optimal experience and best control, we recommend building on onX Offroad in your web browser. You’ll need WiFi connectivity to use Route Builder from a mobile device when planning on the go.

Can I share the Routes I build?

 You can absolutely share the Routes you built and saved. While all users can create a Route, they can only be saved with Premium and Elite. Once saved, Routes can be directly shared or added to and shared via a Folder.

What is the difference between a Route and a Track?

Tracks are saved trips and stats recorded while out on the trail using Go & Track. Routes are custom-built pre-planned trips to save, share, or run in the future.

Can I import a GPX / KML file into a Route?

 A GPX / KML file will import into onX Offroad as a Track. Once imported, you can build a Route over the Track by tracing it. Then, save it as a Route to edit and share.
