I know its easy to modify a route, but if you do so you loose the original route
Miss the ability to copy an existing route and then modify this under new name if you want to keep existing route

    Using the MyDrive Web Route planner....
    Planned a route... Start Worcester --> Birkenhead --> Manchester
    With the route planned
    Click on the Save Button
    A new window opens
    Go to the top of the planning window
    Click on the route Title box & edit the Name
    Named the route... XXXX Worcester to Manchester
    Go to the bottom of the planning window
    Click on the save Button
    The route was saved as... XXXX Worcester to Manchester
    Click on the Edit button... To reactivate the route....

    Modified route....
    Added Blackburn to the route....
    Start Worcester --> Birkenhead --> Blackburn --> Manchester
    Click on the Save Button
    A new window opens
    Go to the top of the planning window
    Click on the route Title box & edit the Name
    Named the route.... YYYY Worcester to Manchester
    Go to the bottom of the planning window

    I use MyRouteApp to quickly modify existing tracks and routes.
    You can display multiple routes and tracks and edit your new version.
    This also works with the free version.

    With the payed Gold version you can also compare routes between different maps, use te TomTom map, use street view and many more.
