Compare route using way points
Post by iconPost by Kelistoir | 2016-12-27 | 14:57:11

Hi zezo,

It's my first post so first of all, thanks you !
You're doing an amazing job.

Starting from one point, it's already great to be able to compare routes changing the destination but I think it would be also useful to be able to add a way point between our starting position and the destination.

May be it's already possible and I just did not found how to do that but if not, do you have ever considered to implement way points in your tool ?

Many Thanks,
Kelistoir

Adding a waypoint can be counter-productive. If you place it in a bad spod the result can be far from optimal.

It's better to try forcing the router by moving the destination pint one way or another. This way you can actually see how much better one of the options is. Sometimes they are equal and the route switches by itself every 10 minutes, sometimes the preference is so strong that you can't make the router take another route at all.

I agree and I'm already doing it for short / middle strategy.
Actually It's just when I have a very long distance between my position and the destination that I think that would be useful.

Anyway it's definitively not a problem ;o)
Thanks again !
