Setting the Road Preferences

Top  Previous  Next

The main MPRouteReader panel has a Route Type setting which is used to set the MapPoint route type, and can be set to Fastest Route, Shortest Route, or Preferred Roads. The Preferred Roads setting requires a number of road type preferences to be set. These are set by pressing the Preferences button to display the Road Preferences dialog box:

MapPoint recognizes five road types (four in North America) that you can set your relative preference for. Simply set each slider to your required preference for that road type. The sliders range from the far left (lowest preference) through the mid-position (neutral preference) to the far right (highest preference.

 

Press OK to save your preference settings or Cancel to discard your changes. The Reset button will reset all the preferences to their default middle (neutral) positions.
