PrettyRoutes will also reference the nearest street while you build off road, which is perfect for connecting to a separate GPD-based “On Road” road to guide your visitors.

Build an Automated Tour

Combined with MapifyPro, you can build a guided tour via the filter feature, which will walk visitors step-by-step through any route. This automated tour can be used on any mobile device in real-time, enriching each tour with photos, video, and detailed information on any landmark or experience along the way.

Poly lines and Custom Shapes

Off Road mode doubles as a “free draw” mode, allowing you to create virtually any shape. Use this feature to outline entire regions, countries and states, or to draw arrows and other shapes on your maps!

A Versatile Library of Routes for WordPress

The flexibility of a complete library of routes—each with their own colors, styles, and modes—that can be placed anywhere in your site can’t be overstated.
