Thank you all for your responses.
First of all, this is the route: https://www.myrouteapp.com/nl/social/route/6346131?mode=share
Reading the suggestions, I think indeed the problem was that I may have missed a routepoint - I was unaware you have to manually count routepoints and correct the missed one using the three dots.
Especially after I stopped at a moment and loaded the route again, this may have been the issue that caused the continuous "make a u-turn" remark.
Thanks for clarifying this.
Thank you for sharing your route. The first thing that I noticed is that you have used the TomTom map for planning.
Both MRA Navigation and your Navigator 5 use the Here (Garmin) map. Always use the Here map as the algorithms for route calculations are different for TomTom.
This unwanted loop is caused by route point 12 (RP12). Always avoid placing RPs on viaducts, roundabouts or junctions. RP12 is on a viaduct.
I have moved RP12 away from the viaduct and solved that problem.
Always fully zoom in to each route point to check it's accuracy and positioning. Use the magnifying glass on RP1, adjust if necessary then use the right arrow to move to the next RP to check. Using this method, it only takes a very short while to check all RPs.
Your RP32 is a good example why you should check the accuracy of each RP. The map shows it on the wrong side of the road and this will cause your GPS device to unwantedly turn around.
The screenshots above are from the TomTom map, you may find the route is a little different in the Here map.
Now that I know this I want to complain about this ridiculous behaviour of the Navigator app. When I load the same route in the Navigator 5 (Garmin) of my motorcycle, the unit understands that if I am driving on the route (in the right direction) - I don't want to go back to routepoints I may have missed before. Or when I go off route to a gas station and start the route again - it recalculates on how to best continue on the route.
Am I the only one to think that the way the Navigator app works is silly? And furthermore, what is the option "Skip Waypoints Automatically" for?
Thanks again for your support.
The auto skip function will auto skip one missed shaping point when you are closer to the next route point, it will not auto skip a via point.
