RV Trip Wizard miles question

When I hover on a stop on the map, the information window that comes up will display Miles:xxx in the corner. I can't make any sense out of that number. It seems rather random. Does anyone know what it is supposed to be reporting?

Also, is there somewhere where the trip wizard will report on either the total miles for the trip, the miles from start to a point on the way or the remaining miles on the trip from any stop. I thought that's what that pop-up might be doing but it's not making any sense.

Thanks.

Gail

Gail, I have noticed the same thing about that "miles" message in the pop-up. Interestingly, just now I looked at a small trip of mine and the word "miles" shows, but not numbers.

At any rate, if you export the trip to Excel (use the wrench to expose the menu) you will see a running total of miles column. You could work with that, if you want other mileage information perhaps.

Thanks, Mike. The number doesn't always show up immediately but usually will appear after a few seconds.

I keep thinking the "miles" are showing how many miles are from the center of the radius of the campground that the radius feature is used on. But sometimes this does not add up correctly.

The miles should always be the distance to that campground or feature from your previous stop, specifically the one that is highlighted in the Trip Menu on the left.

Just FYI.

Hadn't really noticed the miles being discussed before, but I looked at it this morning and every stop I clicked on showed Miles: 1. This is on a laptop running Chrome in Windows 10.

Same trip on iPad Pro in Chrome all the miles show 714, not a leg distance that's on the trip.
