Creating local route for practice I found MyRoute made a lengthy diversion between waypoints only 50metres apart on a clear road. How does one override this? I am sorry if this is a typical beginer's question but I have looked for an answer. Thank you.
Probably it is a 'closed road'.
Maybe a mountain pass.
