I was just playing around with the dashboard and building a few routes using Google Maps in the Chrome browser. Earlier I had installed the ROUTE GRAB app so the Hammerhead icon appears on the Chrome toolbar. After I built the first route I clicked on the Hammerhead icon on the toolbar and the route was saved to the dashboard. I tried this with a second route going from the Netherlands/German border to the Netherlands west coast - 214.5km. That route was also saved to the dashboard complete with all the directional details you normally get with when planning a route with Google Maps. One major difference with these routes created with Google Maps is that there are a bunch of white circles that are actually "grab and drag" points allowing you to alter the route in the dashboard. Make all the changes and finalize the route in the dashboard and save these changes. I am new to this Karoo business so I do not know all the details for linking the Karoo unit with the dashboard so I do all the route planning before I turn on the unit that way I know that I will have the final version of a planned route. I am sharing this because I could find no mention anywhere on the Hammerhead site that this was possible.
