Just completed my first longer trip (about 3200km) with Kurviger and overall I’m very pleased with it.
How ever, there were few occasions when I approached intersection and route was going to right (or left) but driving instruction instructed me to turn to the opposite direction.
Later when I inspected the route I found out that route planning had placed some waypoints incorrectly.
All these incorrect waypoints were placed automatically by the route planning (so I haven’t placed or moved them manually).
Route was planned with web browser and imported to my mobile phone with QR-code.
On kurviger.de website first I select option ‘Fast and curvy road’, then I set start and end points. Then I added some additional waypoints to make the route go through places I wanted. None of those waypoint I added manually were those faulty ones.
Then I click ‘Share’ and read the QR code with my mobile phone.
thanks for the description - but I wonder because I fully agree to zaphod_42: Usually kurviger does not add waypoints on its own, the only exceptions I know are creating round trips and importing GPX routes …
I did a test: Starting with your route, I removed all points besides start and destination. Afterwards I added 6 waypoints to force the route on your one:
I can import it to my mobile phone via QR code, as far as I can see there are still the same points in it …
This is really strange. I looked at all routes I have planned in Kurviger and this is the only one which has so much waypoints.
Some waypoints seem to be totally unnecessary - two or more subsequent waypoints on a road which has no other possible route.
I tried to re-create similar situation with new routes but I couldn’t make it happen. Only when I imported a .gpx file from my Garmin Zumo into Kurviger I got a route with tons of waypoints but that was not the case with my original route.
I guess this remains a mystery. I just need to be more careful in the future and pay more attention to waypoints.
