Is the "route" color configurable?
#1
When viewing a "route" in a google map terrain view, the default light blue color of the route looks very similar to the color of water which is visually confusing.  Is it possible or would you consider making it configurable via "edit", "options" screen?  In the meantime, please consider changing the default route color to an unnatural, high contrast color like purple.


Attached is a picture of the issue and thanks for your consideration.

Not via a UI but via the hidden options (see http://www.routeconverter.com/prereleases/).

Creating and setting registry keys does the trick. These are the defaults:

Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\slash\navigation\converter\gui\mapview]
; online edition: 0033FF RGB
; offline edition: 0xFF0000FF transparency, RGB
"track/Line/Color"="0033FF"
"track/Line/Width"="2"
; online edition: 6EB4F8 RGB
; offline edition: 0x993379FF transparency, RGB
"route/Line/Color"="6EB4F8"
"route/Line/Width"="5"

Which looks ugly, so I try to use the same color that Google maps uses.

Thanks for the speedy response.  And, purple is undeniably ugly.  :-)

Your setting for route/Line/Color is somewhat around 7F00FF = Purple ugly... :-)

I use route/Line/Color 89383f and track/Line/Color 0033FF = Coyote ugly :-)
