It is only giving me the stats based on the end stop of the trip. I know I can go to directions and do the math to figure it out but I really would like it to come up on the screen based on my day not my trip. Make sense?
I think I know your problem.
Even if you run all the tutorials, you will miss some things. SA is not a PHD (Push Here Dummy) program, but all of this power is not intuitive, but only have to find it once.
When you laid out the 13 day trip, did you mark some of the stops as over-night? You can find this by going to Route/Advanced. Over at the right are four buttons Calculate, Reveres, Stop Pref, Make Via. Stop Preferences is what you want, click on that. That box gives you three choices, End of Day, Fuel, and Duration (select hours, minutes)
If you select EOD, then that first right pair of columns will be just this day's travel if you are in list mode. If you are in Turns mode, the day will show.
If you select Fuel, it will move all the little gas pumps down the route. (This is where you put the cursor on the gas pump and read the zip at the bottom of the screen and plug that into GasBuddy.)
If you plug in a duration it will subtract that time from the day's drive.
When you are traveling with computer in "Directions" mode and the GPS running, there will be two boxes at the right of the directions screen that are the next stop and finish for the day.
In the Directions/List, the column headings can be changed and rearranged to better suit your needs.
There are other Easter eggs in there too. The tutorials and help are great, that little question mark brings up help topics. If you can't find it, ask where it is.
I am not here all that often but if you come back to this topic with an other question, it should tell me.
