Round Trip Options with Edited Route

New to RV Trip Wizard but working through a route plan. I planned a trip from point A to B but then performed the "drag route" option to modify the calculated route. This created a single waypoint in the route.


Now, I want to return using the exact same edited route. If I use either of the "Round Trip Options" it will re-calculate a fresh return route, ignoring the edited route and waypoint.


Wondering if there could be a simple "Reverse" route option and use the exact same routing on the return as with the outbound?

Neither of the return route options will take waypoints into consideration.

Thanks for the reply. Future enhancement perhaps? I used the waypoint function to take an alternate preferred route and would want to make the same route on return without having to manually rebuild. Seems a pretty standard function for GPS units but know this is a little different.

Thanks,
Aaron

Instead of using a waypoint, zoom in to the map and right-click on the area of deviation you wish to go and create a custom stop instead. Keep the nights at zero. This will force the route in the direction you want to go, without having to drag and create waypoints and I think will provide a valid return route option as well.

Will give that a go. Thanks for the tip!

Maybe I'm missing something here, but when I select "Round Trip Options" and click on "Mirror Stops Back to Start Point" that is exactly what it does including my waypoints. My trips tend to be short so maybe that is the difference. On a trip with 5 stops and 2 waypoints it exactly mirrored and on a simple one day trip with 2 stops and 5 waypoints it exactly mirrored.

I might need to do some additional testing, perhaps a stealth upgrade slipped in there?

It does appear that changes have been made that will take the waypoints into consideration when mirroring the return route automatically.
