Planning a Route using Towns You don't want to go through
Just fiddling with my new Rider 550 and My-Drive and need (currently) to plan routes from home to/from distant ferry terminals. If I allow My-Drive to define the route(s) it tends to pick routes via motorways and what I'll call the "Great Circle Route" which does not always suit me even if it will be a second faster. I don't want to use the planning option "Avoid Motorways" because I'm happy to include motorways if necessary.
To this end I've been defining towns as way-points to steer the route which sort of works but I don't want to get deviated up the High Street just to reverse back out on track and then get to go up another 'off-route' "High Street". I've tried adding "Stops" on the preferred route to drag the route away from the town centre then delete that town. I sort-of need "Stops" that aren't stops. I need a "Go Via" or "Go Near" option.
Is there a way to get what I need. I'm sure I've seen this issue raise before, many times and years ago to no avail.
