Specific cases

Shorten your route

Shorten your route at the start

Don't forget to save the route. If you want to keep the old route, save the route as an other one (read here how to do this).

Shorten your route at the end

Don't forget to save the adapted route. If you want to keep the old route, save the route as an other one (read here how to do this).

Split up your route

You can split up a route by starting with the original route, shortening it at the end (e.g. until halfway) and by saving this one as a second route. Again starting with the original route and shortening it at the beginning (e.g. until halfway) and by saving this one as a third route.

The cause is, that your route is being generalized (read more about it here).

The effect is also that there aren't route instructions because there is no perfect match between your route and the RouteYou network (read here more about the RouteYou network).

How to let your route correspond with the geometry of the RouteYou network

Once your route has been uploaded you can edit it in the RoutePlanner of RouteYou (read above how to start the route-edit).

Once in the RoutePlanner, do the following
