Route selection [drag&drop] not fully customizable
For a holiday trip in the US this summer I am preparing routes and calculating time and distances and if everything will fit in the bigger plan.
Part of the journey will bring us through Yellowstone park north of Salt Lake City.
If you let Tom Tom plan it now it knows that most of Yellowstone is now closed due to winter conditions and closed roads. But despite that, I want to "select/choose" the roads and prepare the planning. This is not possible as Tom Tom keeps insisting on certain combinations of roads even with the drag option available.
This function is still too rigid and not flexible/customizable enough.
In my planning I want to go from "0815 The Hostel, Teton Village" in the south, drive along the 191 north and not take the 14 more east but the 89 west into the park towards "0816 Super 8 Gardiner. MyDrive does not let me succeed this task. It persists in me taking other routes. See attached images.
This is the default planning going from the southpoint to the north. Tom Tom takes the west side of the park due to current winter conditions and closed roads. Good.
I am trying to plan a route via the 191 and 89 in the east of the park. This is the result. Not good.
Another drag of the route gives me the above. Still not the desired 191 and 89. Not good.
And it seems that what ever point along the road I pull or drag to, it does not give me the result I want. See the below pictures.
Ok so Tom Tom really insists on me not driving along the 89 up north. Must be something really wrong with that road? Well not really.
And the above example is not the first I encounter in adjusting routes. It happens to me in Europe as well. The result is I driving along waypoints, and select the next once I passed a certain point, instead of planned route. It does not make my work easier. It makes it ...... .
So what to do here? Think I am going to switch over to the free for al to use Google Maps and import the file into my 400 plus Euro costing Tom Tom. Nice, really nice.
