In my case I would be prepared to pay a bit more for the premium membership if it includes the Google routing, but not at all if it doesn't, since the mixed mode routing was unusable for my purposes.
We had to stop using Google's routing for the Auto-Plot feature after Google massively increased its prices - we would have been bankrupt within days with the new prices. We have therefore replaced this with routing software based on OpenStreetMaps. As different map types don't always agree on the exact position of features on a map, like paths and roads, this can occasionally result in auto-plotted routes appearing slightly off the path.
I accept this is not ideal, so for now we've reinstated Google's routing for Premium members only when auto-plotting on Google maps, so that we can assess what the cost would be to see if this is viable. If it proves to be too costly, the only options would be to raise our prices, stop using Google maps completely or accept the occasional plotting anomally. Hopefully we will be able to absorb the additional costs but I would be interested to hear from Premium members which of these options they feel is most palatable if it turned out to be too costly to continue to use Google's routing.
Thanks, but the problem isn't a single missing piece on OSM maps, (the example I showed was just one of many), but that it appears Plotaroute uses OSM data for autoplot even when the Google maps are displayed.

Need an (easy) (Id edit) correction by joining (connecting) that single short missing section.
Compare with the available background areal picture. (I did not correct !)
Example:https://www.plotaroute.com/map/670693Switch between Street map (Google) and Paths or Transport map (OSM) to see the reason for the long detour.
When Google maps could no longer be used for free I became a premium member with the assumption that I could continue to use the route planner as before.Unfortunatly that doesn't seem to be the case, the quality of the autoplot has dropped dramatically. Now it refuses to route where I click on minor roads, no matter if I select "By road", "On foot" or "By bike". Instead it creates long detours.
After a bit of experimenting it appears that although the Google map is displayed, the actual routing is performed using the OSM transport map, causing this mismatch.
Is this intentional?
