Shaping point VS Via Point

Hi guys, I’m new on the Kurviger having some questions about the software. But for now I take the first one.
What is the difference between Shaping Point and Via Point.


Via Points are for “wanna go exactly there”. For example Stop for sight seeing.
In this case kurviger will always drive to this point.
shaping Points are for “get the route where i want”. This point is not necessary to drive to.
If there is a detour and the shaping point is in this section you do not drive through, you can drive on at that point you come back to your route.
That means. Use Via Points only for real Stopps and the Rest shapingpoints makes it easier

Best regards

Many thanks G-B. Thats a really good thing to have. A lot of other navigation apps has only Via Points and that can be really enjoying some times…
