Route builder has become terrible at following decent roads
Route builder used to be very good, but it has become absolutely terrible in the past year or so, to the point where it's barely usable any more. The problem is that it keeps trying to take every possible shortcuts. Unpaved roads, trails, imaginary paths... You name it, if it can cut though a turn, it'll take it. It really doesn't make any difference if you "Use Popularity" or not.
I'm guessing not everyone will have this problem depending on their location, but leaving in the french Alps with many twisty roads and lots of trails, it is really a problem for me. Every time I'm planning a route I have to insert dozens of waypoints to keep the route on the actual road.
At a minimum, there should be a "Road bike" option that keeps the route to paved roads.
Has anyone else noticed this? What changed that made route builder so much worse at following good roads than it used to be?
