    Only the directions you needFollowing feedback on the forums we've made some changes to prevent the directions that are generated when you plot a route becoming clogged up with superflous instructions like "Continue on...". This should help when it comes to navigating routes and should also help to keep the number of directions under the limit imposed by some GPS devices, as well as making the list of directions generally more manageable.

    If you don't need directions to be generated at all when you plot a route, you can turn off the Generate Directions setting on your My Settings page.

    Do we need to do anything to reduce superfluous directions from maps we have already plotted before this great change was implemented?

    I'm afraid we're not able to retrospectively apply this to existing routes - it will only take effect for new routes plotted.  However, you can fairly quickly delete any existing directions you don't want by editing your route in the route planner.

    I set "Generate Directions (with Auto-Plot only)" to "NO" and still directions are being generated.

    Directions "needs attention" by Plotaroute. Somehow, the default directions make there way into the TCX files I download such that I get turn notifications I don't want. The same is true for "Dist to Next" and "ETA to Next". However, the cue sheet page is correct.

    Thanks for flagging that up Paul, we'll take a look at that and get it fixed as soon as possible.
