Can no longer add city centers as stops

In the past few weeks, something has changed within the maps. We used to be able to add city centers as a stop. Now it seems you can only add POI's (campgrounds, Walmarts, fuel stations, etc.).

Since we full-time, we have gotten a huge amount of value from this tool. But this change is pretty significant for us and now makes it harder for us to plan far ahead. We plan our routes around towns/cities/states for timing reasons, and see where we will actually be 6-12 months out, and plan things like family visits, cruises, etc. We then go back and replace those city-center entries with the actual campground we have booked. For example, we want to be in Galveston, TX next March and see how that plans in our route. We'd add Galveston as a stop. Once we figure out where we are actually staying, we replace the Galveston stop with the actual campground. This worked great the past 3 months, now no longer works.

Any way the dev team can add this feature back in?

I don't know which maps you are referring to, but on a GPS wherever I can't plan to a city center I just plan to the post office and that works well.

I never have the need to know where the city center is. I just input whatever post office, school, town hall or similar and I can get what I need.

I do believe it is fixed! I went in and tried to add the cities from the map area to the trip area; that were giving me issues last week. They all seem to work well now. Thanks to you and the dev team for addressing!
