April Newsletter

Happy Birthday to Us!

Two years ago today, myscenicdrives.com was launched. We began with many drives in Washington State where we’re based, a few in Oregon, and a grand vision. A lot of miles, maps, research, and picnics later we’re proud to feature drives in 25 states and are continuing to make myscenicdrives.com the go to website for all your road trip planning needs.

We’ve had an exciting year with many new developments. Here are four highlights:

We have more interesting features planned for the next several months and are always adding scenic drives.

Thanks for using myscenicdrives.com!

Road Trip Planner Updates

It’s never been easier to use our Road Trip Planner! We hope you enjoy all our new features.

Path Compression

You ask, we listen. This feature was requested by many users to use with Export to GPS, simplifying the routes exported to your GPS. Choose from three options:

Adding Destinations

Entering an address has never been easier now with our new Add Destination interface.

You're going to love our simplified interface. Just click Add Destination below your last stop to add addresses, search for destinations, nearby stops and more.

Do you use address book management software? More than likely it supports a vCard format which you can now upload to our Road Trip Planner saving some copy-’n-pasting. To import, select File and select Import Address from VCard.

Enhanced Hotels Features

Finding a hotel on myscenicdrives.com is more responsive and faster.

Now you can add hotels booked on myscenicdrives.com by phone to your Road Trip Plan. Just select your reservation from Add Travel Accommodations.

And for your convenience, we’ve added more payment options.

Undo and Redo

The myscenicdrives.com Road Trip Planner has integrated Undo and Redo making it easy to explore.

Have you ever wanted to try out options in our Road Trip Planner didn’t want to lose what you already created? Worry no more! We’ve added Undo and Redo for most operations throughout our Road Trip Planner, making it a cinch to restore your trip back to the way it was.

Activities Updates

Jot down ideas of what you are planning to do within an area with our Activities Feature, now available on iPad!

Just one click on Add Activity is a quick and easy way to add destinations, places of interests and personal notes to a stop. And best of all, it now works on iPad!

Cost per Liter Support

Using the metric system? We’ve added support for liters in our gas calculator and Road Trip Planner.

Support for Importing and Exporting CSV

Our Road Trip Planner now supports importing and exporting of Comma-Separated Files, commonly known as CSV. Customize your column layout using our CSV Import and Export tools.

Using CSV for one of our scenic drives? Just add the Scenic Drive to a Road Trip and then use our GPS Exporter to generate the CSV file you need.
