Route profiles allow you to apply custom combinations of routing options and vehicle dimensions that are used frequently, rather than setting individual options for each trip. You can create and name route profiles in the PC*MILER user interface or you can use the preset profiles that come standard with PC*MILER 34 and higher.
Note: Using a preset profile ensures consistent vehicle settings so that the routes and distances generated in Connect match the routes and distance generated in the PC*MILER user interface.
The following functions allow you to access profiles via PC*MILER Connect:
- PCMSSetRoutingProfileName turns on the specified route profile created in PC*MILER.
- PCMSGetNumRoutingProfiles gets the number of created route profiles.
- PCMSGetRoutingProfileName gets the name of the route profile, given its index.
