    Hi John!
    What about deours in begin or end route ?

    I would make separate buttons for these features.

    1. Alternative start

    When you press it, you build a route along the point and it should end on a track point (Confirm appears when you select a track point)

    2. Alternative finish

    When you press it, you select a track point and then build a route by points (Confirm appears immediately)

    We've changed it to make the detour lines thicker if you're viewing a route on a touchscreen device, so it should hopefully be a little bit easier to select detours now on smartphones.

    Hi Mikhail,

    I think it's probably just that it's a bit fiddly on a small screen.  It's working OK for me on an Android phone but you do have to tap around the line a bit to hit it, as you can't click precisely with your finger like you can with a mouse. We could try making the detour line a bit bigger on a mobile device to see if this helps - we'll have a look at that.

    Hi, John!

    Alternative route selection does not work on mobile pages :(

    I really like the look of this - I have a lot of fairly similar long run routes which only vary by detours to add extra mileage and climb.

    My use case is to have saved alterative routes to be able to download later. I will probably forget to change it then.

    One maybe complicated option would be

    - if there is a dir where I start the detour, duplicate the dir directly after.

    - if not auto generate two dir on the diff paths.

    Thanks Peter, glad you like this. Yes, you could add directions near the split as you suggest.  Perhaps it would be helpfui though if we automatcially added a direction at the start of any new detour saying "Start of detour", then it would be located exactly at the point where the route splits and you could easily edit it by clicking on it in the list of directions?

    This is really a great feature. It will be interesting to try it out more next time I want to run an alterative route.

    It will be interesting to see how directions and fit export work. I'm thinking that if I need different directionswhere the route split, depending of what alternative I picked,  I can manually put the two different directions a couple of meters after the split.
