    My Problem With RouteSlip

    I am logged in to RouteSlip and go to the discover routes, click a state, a city, and a route and I all I get is a "Loading - Please Wait" that just stays there. A route never loads. I have DSL and it is realatively fast. Any ideas on why I cannot get any route to appear???? Kindly --- Don

    The load is actually very fast, but the rendering depends soley on your computer's resources. You can see this if you watch the activity light on your DSL box and then Task Manager. Task Manager will be "pegged" and show iexplore is sucking up 100% of the cpu as it trys to run the script for rendering the page in the background.

    In other words, RouteSlip sux and that's why I've switched to www.bikely.com

    I had that problem 2 days ago with RouteSlip, and couldn't even get that far with Maymyrun or bikely using either IE or Mozilla on DSL. Routeslip worked fine for me yesterday, and looked way better than Mapmyrun. What do most people use?

    It wont save my route today! Anybody got any hints as to tell when it's going to save your route before you get it plotted?

    The more points the longer it takes to render. I made one really detailed, very precise map that had over 600 points on it.... it took it 5 minutes to display! Looked very nice once it did, though!

    Bikely has it's own set of problems, as does toporoute.com .... they all have their uses, though.
