Create a course using the Stages Cycling app's course builder and sync it to your Stages Dash M200/L200 or M50/L50. Courses created on the Stages Cycling app are saved to Stages Cloud and then pushed onto your Stages Dash. Create your own custom course by tapping along the map or search for a location to navigate to and have the course builder create the route for you.
The Stages Cycling app course builder uses control points to build your ride. Control points are places on the map that the route will follow. Linking the control points together creates the course. A course has to have at least two control points, a starting point, and a finishing point.
Tap on the map to create a control point. If a starting point or other control points have already been added, the course builder will create a route between the previous point and the next control point using roads, paths, and trails on the map.
Pinch the screen to zoom in and out of the map.
Use the buttons on the lower right-hand side of the course builder to edit the control points:
|Delete all control points
|Undo last control point

Edit the created course
Before saving, you can edit the course by moving the existing control points to modify the route.
- For courses created by using the search for location feature, you will need to add additional control points to the course in order to edit. For courses that were created by adding control points along your route, you can move existing points or add new points and move them to a new location.
- Tap anywhere on the created course and select Add control point to existing course to add a new control point.
- Tap on the control point and select Edit existing control point.
- Select a new location on the map to move the control point to. This will change the course as it will adjust to your newly placed control point.
- Add and move the control points until you are satisfied with the course.
- Once finished, select the double checkmark icon. Select Save for later.
- Name your course and select Save.
