    Re: multi stop optimization

    You can do this in the route planner. Add the route locations. And press the button - I think it is called "Optimize". The stand and end waypoints stay the same, the others are re-ordered. Note that this is essentially the Travelling Salesman Problem - it can be very slow if there are a lot of waypoints and under other conditions (solving the underlying problem in polynomial time would probably win you a $1 million maths prize - ie. it is Difficult)

    The same can be done programmatically by adding your waypoints to the Waypoints collection in the Route object. Then call the Route object's Optimize() method.
