    Default T4A Strange routing Skeleton Coast

    Hello,

    Today I started planing a trip along the Skeleton Coast in Namibia, which will do with guided tour by Coast2Coast Tours

    Now I got stuck on a section from Move Bay to Hoarusib River Mouth, I get as far from Mowe Bay - Mowe Bay Office And Reception (130m), but as soon as I add the next waypoint N=Guided Tours Only, which is only a few meters away from Mowe Bay Office And Reception, then it routes along the coast south via D2302 - then east on the C39 - then north via C43/D3706 - Palmwag - then west via Seisfonatin - D3707 - Hoarusib River Mouth then south to N=Guided Tours Only, which is about 596km.

    My question is what am I doing wrong, have I missed a setting or something?

    Many thanks in advance for any hints and all have a nice Sunday evening

    Deekee you're not doing anything wrong, t4a is just alerting you to the fact that travelling north beyond the "Mowe Bay Office & Reception" is not normal & that you should proceed with caution - Zoom in 100% at the Office and see that t4a have created a 15m break in the track. You already know that the issue, in this case, is that you need a guide. OSM will happily route you north but runs out of track before the Hoarusib River. Google Maps doesn't show the track at all.

    To get Basecamp & your device to route in the manner that you'd prefer, create WayPoints on either side of the break and direct route across the break - in the route editing window, double click on the first WayPoint and select "Direct" from the Dropdown just above the "OK" button. See the Skeleton Coast.Gpx file.

    Many thanks that worked just great, but I had to unhide the direkt routing option first in the routing preferences

    Have a nice day!
