@David-Rudgley If you choose walking as the type of route (instead of driving or cycling) when you first create a new route. Then choose Default (OpenStreetMap) as your planning map and use the OpenStreetMap overlay. With this map overlay you can see footpaths when you fully zoom in. Then place your route points on the footpath.
I live on the coast of North Devon between Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks. This is a beautiful part of the UK and I and my wife Hannah have many places to ride our motorcycles.
We love touring on our motorcycles and use both MRA Navigation and a TomTom Rider 500 for Navigating.
I am a mentor within the MyRoute-app RouteXpert framework and can help out with most of your queries regarding route planning.

RE: Is it possible to plan a walking route that doesn't rely on following roads
RE: Transport mode switch
@Robineke This isn't possible once a route has been created. What you could do is, open a new route and choose cycle as the type of route. Open the new route and plan it on the Default (OpenStreetMap) then open the OpenCycleMap overlay, this will show you cycle roads and cycle only tracks. Click Routes in the left side bar and then click Add. Add the route that you wish to become a cycle route, this will add a yellow line showing where the original route goes. It is then just a case of adding route points to either follow the existing route or choose a more cycle friendly route.
RE: Daily Routes or not?
Hi @Peter-kinver. 4 of us did a 21 day tour in 2019 all across Europe with a total of 7200 kms. We had 3 rooms booked in all the hotels that we were going to stop at. We chose hotels that we were able to cancel within 24 hours of our stay without losing any money.
One of the bikes developed a problem which delayed us by 2 days. We decided that we wanted to catch up on our intended itinerary which meant adjusting the next 3 days routes and hotels.
This was relatively easy using an iPad to access my MRA account to adjust the routes and some research to find alternative hotels.
I use MRA Navigation on my iPhone and a TomTom Rider 500. The modified routes were automatically available to use with MRA Navigation and they were easy to transfer to my TT by using Wi-fi.
I know this doesn’t directly help your situation with your Nav-6, but my advice would be to definitely take a tablet of some description and maybe sign up for a subscription for MRA Navigation.
