Once an active route is created in EZWxBrief, it will persist from one session to another. This is to facilitate using EZWxBrief on multiple devices. Often you may start your preflight weather planning for a proposed route using a desktop computer and later switch to using a portable device such as an iPad. Keeping the route active will facilitate moving between devices. However, when you are done with a route how do you delete the route?
Unlike some other applications, EZWxBrief does not require a route unless you need to evaluate the weather along a proposed flight against your personal minimums. If you don't have a specific route to plan, you may want to delete the active route. This can be done using the route editor while viewing the EZMap under Plan a route in the Quick Start menu. Once you are viewing the map and the active route loads, click on the route editor button in the upper left. The active route will be filled for your departure and destination airports as well as your proposed route of flight that may include airports, VOR identifiers and other intersections and fixes. Next, you will notice a Delete route label below the Reverse and Clear buttons. If you tap or click on this label, the active route will be deleted.
At this point the active route on the map will be removed and the EZDeparture Advisor will change to a rudimentary time slider.
