I purchased the product to eliminate going to MapQuest however when I select a route between two pushpins the application does not use the state highways. I have selected average speed, quickest times under the route options.

Thank you for getting back to me. My problem stems from the fact that I need to generate a large number of routes thru MPMileCharter and adding stops is not feasible.

Example 1

Alpena MI to Petosky MI - shortest and quickest route = I attached screen print showing route along the Lakes. App could have taken me across instead of up and down.


687


Alpena MI to Gaylord MI to Petosky MI - shortest and quickest route = When I insert a stop in Gaylord it takes the a more direct route (state roads) for shortest and quickest.

688


Example 2

Hancock MI to Atlanta - quickest route = this route generated shows 7 hours 6 minute without stop. If you add a stop in Hancock going down US41 rather than Highway 26 the route shows 6 hours and 9 minutes.

Thank you
