Waypoint suggestions



  • Hello All,
    I purchased this software last year for a motorycle trip from Texas to Tenessee and it worked very well. One issue I did struggle with a few times was waypoints. For example if we are starting our day from a hotel, and I have us going to a Harley dealer, then on towards hotel. If we stop for Harley dealer, then veer off course from the road plotted, say for lunch, then leave and get back on the same highway, but at a different point than where we would of gotten on the highway at Harley dealer, it will continuously try to reroute me, turn me around and have me get back on that turnoff to get on the same highway I'm already on, because of a missed waypoint. I have to go and hit skip way point while I'm going down the road, just was wondering if there was an easier way to deal with this either in the waypoint setup or in the setting perhaps. It can be a little tricky when you are in a remote area and trying to get back to a highway say, and it's got you going the opposite direction.
    Hopefully that makes sense, and thanks for any suggestions.



  • @Russ-1 Hi Russ, have you tried the 'recalculation option'? This usually resolves things when you have gone past your original waypoint to another "unplanned point" further along the original route?

    Hi @Russ-1 The skip function is the easiest tool to use if you know you've gone off track and also know which way you're heading (back on track). MRA Navigation will automatically skip waypoints but it depends on where you are in relation to the next waypoint. MRA Nav, like all other sat navs, will reroute you to the next nearest waypoint not bagged. I hope my picture explains it better. 36eec0bc-60be-4e6c-ba66-437fd90e14b5-image.png



  • Thanks guys for the replies. I have not tried a recalculation, guess I didn't know there was such a thing. Nick, your picture, sums it up to a Tee bud. Also, you make an excellent question, "If you know you've gone off track and if you know what direction your headed." In one case I went to have lunch about 75 miles away from me, taking country roads, I've never been on, just enjoying the afternoon. Well it told me to take a left on a country road which I did, and then I started noticing a mile down the road it wanted me to do a Uturn to go back. Long story short on that one was my way point pin was just slightly off the main road and slightly on the side road ( I did not know this til I got back home and pulled it up on pc) so it thought I needed to stop there. But I got turned around in my head because when I went back to the way I came, and then made the left, (putting me back on the original road I was on to begin with), and started going again, it told me to turn around to go back to the turnoff I just came from, and watching the repeated turn around cues and mileage growing the further I got from it, and the closer I got to the town I was going I didn't know what turns I needed to make to get to the restaurant due to it keep telling me to turn around. I guess the skip feature is the best, but sometimes your not quite sure of surroundings so it's like, uhm yea, I think skip next waypoint, lol.
