Route planning creates its own garbage and adds it to my route

    An update. I tried setting a way point at every intersection. This worked but was pretty messy. This didn't seem right to me. So I tried it again, only setting the start and end points as way points. Strangely, it worked this time. I do not know why the application went haywire last time but it seems to be working now.

    Sometimes GAIA tries to route my paths a shorter path so I have to force it to go my route with some additional waypoints. I tend to add them in major intersections. I also find when using the app, it sometimes helps me see when an intersection is coming up because I forced a point at that intersection.

    Thanks TakeNoSpace, I will keep that in mind making routes.

    I frequently plan cycling routes and this scenario is pretty typical of every GPS route planner I've used. If you think about it, most trips have numerous options, so the software can only "guess" until you give it hints along the way. Every intersection is usually overkill, however.
