    Programatically adding push pins on a route

    Once you build a route, is it possible to programatically add push pins along the route?
    For a GPS Magellan system for ex. if you just upload the start and end point of the route it will think the route is a line between start and end. What I would like is to be able to add more points along the route so the GPS will have a better granularity when drawing the route.

    If adding more pushpins/waypoints along the route is not possible programatically, I was wondering if maybe I could read the whole map somehow and get to the information MapPoint uses for drawing the routes. Than I could build my own route...

    Thanks in advance,
    Fabian

    Almost there

    I'm dong the same and have found that iterating through the directions & converting their locations to Lat/Long almost works .... except where the direction is a stretch of road then what appears to happen is the location is a point in between the start of the road section and the end. Not so good if you're using the GPS to make turns! You end up missing the turn and only realising when the GPS starts to point you backwards!

    Any ideas to finding the location of the start of a direction "leg" greatly appreciated.
