PC*MILER’s route profiles enable you to create and save comprehensive sets of custom routing options and quickly apply them to a route. Using profiles can help ensure your frequently used options are correctly and consistently used when generating routes. 


A profile can be applied to individual routes, or globally to all new routes using a Default profile. Route profiles can be created, edited, deleted, and designated as favorites, with the exception of the Default profile which can be edited but not deleted.  


When using a route profile, the profile must be selected for a route before all other options. When you change the route profile, it resets any other options set for the route, including an ETA/ETD.  


To begin working with route profiles, select the Routes tab > Profiles.

Off the shelf, PC*MILER applies a Default profile to each new route that includes options suitable for 48-foot semi-trailer trucks in North America and provides several other sample profiles suitable for different vehicle types. The default 48-foot options are the same standard default settings that were historically applied to PC*MILER routes. 


These default values can be edited by the user to be more reflective of the equipment used in the field, e.g. light, medium-duty and/or heavy vehicles.
