send route from mydrive

I'd like to see that it is possible to send the route from mydrive app to tomtom instead of the destination. This adds a lot of value since you can find the nicest route on the phone upfront of the drive.

    Hi @tomjob
    This feature has been requested before; I will add this topic link to it.

    Thank you, Vikram

    The feasibility will be very difficult, as MyDrive often has more up-to-date maps than on your navigation device. It could happen that in MyDrive you are driving on a road that your navigation device does not yet know or has blocked.
    Or imagine you have set an exclusion on your navigation device (e.g. avoid motorways/ferries) and in MyDrive you have allowed them. The navigation device could not process it.
    However, you can already drive one of the routes preset in MyDrive as a "track".

    Here an example with the Android MyDrive App.

    Select your preferred route and tap on the small dropdown arrow

    Then selct "Save in MyRoutes"

    Then press the button "This route as track...." and save it.

    When the device has synchronised with MyDrive, the tour should be visible as a "Track" under "My Routes".

    A track is a kind of breadcrumb trail that your device tries to follow.
