MPRouteWriter v3.0 released RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • MPRouteWriter v3 has just been released. This is a major new version that includes support for the Microsoft .NET Framework.

    New features include:

    - Smoother handling of Excel and the user interface
    - Ability for RouteWriter to sort pushpin data fields by name for consistency
    - Ability to set rest stops & rest intervals (RouteWriter and RouteReader)
    - RouteWriter can export waypoint coordinates without the need for pushpins
    - RouteReader now supports start and end groups with multiple pushpins
    - Should support future versions of Windows
    - Rebranding as "MPRouteWriter"

    MPRouteWriter allows you to export a route's waypoints and matching pushpins to Excel (or a text file) whilst maintaining route order. Pushpin information, waypoint information, and rest stop information can all be exported.

    MPRouteWriter also includes MPRouteReader which does the opposite: It creates a route from existing pushpins using a pre-defined order. The order is defined using a pushpin data field (eg. a sequence number). A subset of the pushpin set can also be selected.

    Further information and a free 14 day trial can be found on the official MPRouteWriter website at:


    System Requirements: Microsoft MapPoint 2006 (or later);  Microsoft .NET 4 Framework (free download from Microsoft); and Microsoft Excel 2003 (or later) - for Excel export options only.

    The single license price for MPRouteWriter v3 is US$75, with discounts for purchases of five or licenses. A special upgrade license for users of RouteWriter v1.* and v2.* is available - contact us for details along with a proof of purchase (eg. your original order notification email).


    In other news: major new versions of our MPMileage and MPCluster products are now in beta testing. Let me know if you are interested in trying either of these.

  • Thanks. Yes RouteWriter is popular - the new version should make it easier to support, especially in future versions of Windows.

  • v3.6 has just been released:  http://www.routewriter.com

    v3.6 adds the ability to calculate and write distances, travel times, and average speeds for the intervals between successive waypoints and/or rest stops.

    v3.6 also fixes a problem with multi-day travel times, and features some internal improvements to the installer.
