    Unhappy Avoid U-Turns when optimizing

    I optimize routes using MapPoint consisting of about 120 to 180 stops. The routes are driven in straight trucks (ie. Hino 185's which are about 25 feet long). Because of the size of the vehicle, it is difficult and unsafe to perform U-Turns in some areas.

    Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find a way to avoid U-turns in MapPoint 2008. As such, I end up with problems such as the one you will see in the attached image (ie. points 58, 59, 60). If I am overlooking the feature please let me know. If not, this feature would be quite beneficial to anyone who's fleet uses large trucks in residential areas.

    Thanks in advance for any help provided!

    Re: Avoid U-Turns when optimizing

    Hi inv3nt0r, unfortunately you are not overlooking this feature. It is not present in your 2008 version, nor in any of the newer versions of the product. But it certainly would be a nice addition to future releases.
