I have a TomTom 550.Want to create a route for use on vacation and start at the hotel. When I create the route looks fine and when I send it to my device it adds my present location to the route. Looking for some help.

Welcome to the site....
If you use the Save & Sync option on the MyDrive Web Route Planner
You can use Stops in the planning stage, but Stops are not displayed on the Map screen or the Route bar... The Save & Sync option saves a .GPX Track... it's basically a bread crumb track that you follow....
A Route planned directly on the device is a .ITN Route a .ITN Route uses Stops and the device plans the route between the stops... An .ITN Route will respond to Live Traffic and any route deviations BUT an .ITN route will doggedly follow the stops in the order they were created, if you miss a stop, the device will continuously attempt to guide you to the missed stop... You have to cancel the problem stop on the device to avoid it
Using a .ITN Route planned on the MDW Route planner...
The latest version of MyDrive Web Route planner now uses
'Send Destination' or 'Send Stops' to send an .ITN Route
The MyDrive Web Route planner only
the route to the device as a Destination... Or if you add Stops it send it as a Route (But it is not automatically saved in MyRoutes)
If you are using .ITN route and 'Send Stops'
see my workaround below
Complex Multi Stop .ITN Route Rider 400
If your starting point
your present location, there's a
When using the 'Send Stops' option, during an "A" to "B" route transfer
where 'A' IS NOT
your present location... The device drops Location "A"
This bug also applies to Multi-Stop/Waypoint routes... 'A' to 'B' to 'C' to' D' to 'E' etc...
For more info, See...
This is the workaround method I use....
The Tomtom MyDrive Web Route Planner....

(2)... Zoom in... Place a Sacrificial stop close to the Start Icon
(4)... Choose the 'Send Stops' option... The route will sync to your device

(5.1)... The device will calculate your route using Stops in the order that you placed the Stops in the route

Then skip Bullet-point... (6)
(6)... When the route has calculated, Pinch zoom to the correct start of your Route (The Sacrificial Stop Icon)
(Tap and hold for +1 second) on the Sacrificial Stop Icon --> A quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot icon --> Choose 'Use as a Starting Point'
The device will calculate your route from your new location
Saving the Route
'Quick Tap' anywhere on the Route --> A quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot icon --> Manage route --> Add to my Routes.... Edit the Route name as required or simply Tap Add
