    Sorry, had a brain fart. Meant to say "via point" when I mistakenly said "way point." The point was, pun not intended, the longer you have between clicks when making a route, the more opportunity the Garmin routing software has to create unexpected adventures for you.

    Gotcha. I completely agree. Their software is like a small child that requires close supervision.
