Planning a "Stub Stop" on MyDrive Web
There is however one area where I struggle to get it to do what I want which is planning what I call a "Stub Stop".
What I mean by this is going to a place where I actually want to stop for a while and where I turn off down a side road and stop some distance down the road. After the stop I want to depart back the way I came i.e. return to the main road but mostly I cannot get MyDrive web to do this.
From experimentation it seems to me that the routing is insisting that I pass through a stop i.e. carry on in the same direction of travel when I leave. If the stop is down a dead end then it will route back but if not, as a minimum it seems to insist that I travel on down the road until I reach a point where I can turn round which is normally another junction. In itself this isn't too bad and might make some sense however often it doesn't even do this but instead it creates superfluous loops to eventually take me back to the road I wanted to return to.
I did look to see if there was some setting to enable/disable U-Turns but I couldn't see one.
Am I missing something?
If not is this an area that the developers could look at?
Suggestions would be:
1. Have a function to enable/disable U-Turns at Stops
2. Always allowing (but not enforcing) a U-Turn at a stop. This should apply to "hard stops" but not to a via-point as the word "via" does imply onward travel. If this was possible, you could always override a U-Turn that was forced by current routing at a hard stop, if required, by adding a via-point further down the road.
What do others think?
