@Craig-4 I have absolutely no idea how it works and as far as I’m concerned, it’s black magic. Perhaps 7 was too close to where you rejoined your route for the algorithms to kick in??
I fully appreciate what you’re saying regarding leading a group out though, highly embarrassing. This new feature is in beta mode at the moment and I’m sure that the boffins in the MRA lab will be made aware of any issues that might crop up and be onto them.
I use MRA Nav alongside my TT because I like the ability to attach notes to coloured route points and read them out. Very handy for little snippets of information about the castle you’re visiting or to alert you of a tricky section of road.
I have every faith that if there are issues, they’ll be sorted soon.
All the best Nick
@Craig-4 Not claiming that this is the best way, but this is how I do it:
Route end point: I put mly end points on the road fairly close to my destination (read: hotel). This way I am sure that routing will have stopped when I arrive which avoids a few annoying things with my GPS.
Route starting point: never at the hotel because then the GPS may miss it and keeps sednign you back. Very often, I put my route starting point on the first main road outside the city where I stay. That may be several kilometers away from the hotel. This way I can give my GPS the freedom to calculate the optimal route to get out of the city and pick up my route when the odds of having a roadblock are minimal.
Your second problem. Your GPS may be doing the correct thing. It is calculating the most efficient way to go to nearest point, and in many cases this does mean turning around.
I guess you've already found the answer, but anyway: The expand is there to add x number of waypoints to a route. This helps the navigator that you have to use exactly the route you planned on the computer.
@Nick-Carthew thank you for the hint, I know about. But is not the solution, I'm looking for 😉
Verry often, I leave my planned route for a short side trip, then let my Navi find the way back to main route. In this case, route on paper is not helpful.
