Default Map Location for 'Measure Route' (Read 28 times)


    This is not really a crucial issue, but I am moving in a couple of months, and I appreciate using the Measure Route tool.  As it happens, I travel a lot for work anyway, and so I have noticed that when I open the tool, it opens centered on the same map location, as if I had a 'home' location saved somewhere.


    What I wonder is, "Is there a way to change the location at which the map opens when I start the Measure Route tool?"


    I think there must be, because I think I ran into it accidentally once a week or so ago, but I can't remember how I did it?


    Thanks to anyone who can help.

    an amazing likeness

      Richard -- the default map location is in your Locale settings.
