Hi
As anyone else noticed that after planning a route on 1.8, that if you go into route settings and try to do an alternative route (from fastest to shortest etc.) it just gives you the original one.

I have try this a few times and to only way I can get a different route is to completly delete the old one.

Cheers

I'm getting an alternative!

I tried london to Lincoln and it sent me along the M1, across past bedford to the A1 then up to Newark and on to Lincoln.

Alternative gives the M1 to leicester and up the Fosse Way to Newark and Lincoln.


When I tried this on the old 700 a while back, the alternative offered would not use any of the original roads and was pretty useless. This looks (on the basis of one test) to be a bit more intelligent.

Something is going wrong with mine.

If a route involves a motorway and I try to change it to walking, it still tell me to go on the motorway.

Dont think I would get far walking on a motorway without the boys in blue arriving.

It worked fine until the last update
