Routegadget ( lvo.routegadget.co.uk ) will show your course animated using average time for each straight leg but you can over plot this by drawing in your actual route to each control. If you have a GPS file from your watch you can upload this for the ultimate post-event-navigational-angst-fest. See our FAQ section for a brilliantly written guide on how to use Routegadget. (If you don’t like it then search the web for one of the many shaky video guides)

N.B. Unfortunately, if you are hand drawing your route, RG won’t work with if you didn’t do the cluster in the default order provided. Sorry about this. GPS plots work fine as RG just runs it as given.
