## Maybe an easy question for you guys...

Ok i will rephrase the question another way... I can read GPS info and plot my lat/long on the screen... at the same time i have entered the waypoints for DESTINATION and STARTING point. I have called the Calculate function and it has mapped & drawn the route. Now my problem is this...once the car starts moving and i go off track, is there a function or a way i can detect this and then re-calculate from this point ???

Thanks

I get what you are trying to say but the problem really is with the ROUTE. All you can get from that object is the Directionsm,turns,distance, and few other things. If i try to access the LOCATION object within the ROUTE, it is NULL (empty). If i could get that then i should be able to solve the problem. Maybe you or anyone can tell me how to get the address from the ROUTE object.

Thanks.

5. I would try first getting the coordinates of the line out (see if this helps: http://www.mp2kmag.com/articles.asp?...ultiple.routes) then as the pushpins moves do the mathematical calculations to see if the vehicle has say deviated more than a fifth of a mile off the route..

Good luck,
Eric
