Route shows a section with a dashed line?

All,
I created a route and noticed that a section is showing a dashed line in the route.
What does the "dashed" section represent?  I could not find the answer in the help file.
Thanks
Steve

Steve, Those are areas where you would likely be tacking and gybing for the best VMG

If you do a search on 'dotted' or 'dashed' you'll likely find more.
Cheers,
Ernie

Thanks Ernie, I could not find the answer in help and I missed it in the form, found it now.
Thanks

I had the same question about dotted lines, but when I was optimizing a route.  It seems there must be more to it than what Ernie stated above because some parts of the same line between points on the same tack are solid and some are dashed lines.

That is all it is - the dashed section indicates tacking or gybing. In the results table, it will have twa values like (-16)
