how to force a route using a specific ferry.
Planning a route uk - spain and want to go via portsmouth to Bilbao. No via option in route planning and putting in stops just results in going to portsmouth and then driving to dover and then to Bilbao. As if it doesn't know about the Portsmouth to Bilbao ferry. In the past there was a via option in route planning. Any idea's how to force it to be youe slave instead of master

    Hi @Lucify

    When you want to add a stop on a route you can do it by pressing and holding the spot on the map for a second until a marker appears.

    So start by doing the same in the English Channel just off the Isle of White until the Ferry you want is offered. If you want the Portsmouth Santander Ferry you do the same but in the Bay of Biscay. Having found and selected now Tap the plus against that connection at the top and input Bilbao Ferry and the route will then complete between Portsmouth and Bilbao ferry terminals. . You can then add more stops as required.
