    When navigating to a POI (Route To Here) with GPS still off PE gives an error message “Start point is far from road network”. 
    Once GPS has been switched on – and off again – this error message is not given.
    To test it:
    – close PE completely
    – start PE
    – select a POI
    – Navigate » Route To Here

    Sometimes Initialising takes a very long time. This is also solved by switching GPS on/off.

    Just installed v2.02b1 and both issues are still there. 

    Once a GPS position is established the first issue does not happen anymore, but initialising often takes a long time. 
    (I’m testing this from behind my desk, so not moving and a bad GPS reception.)

    This should be partially solved already in v2.02b2 and the rest will be solved in v2.02b3. Maybe you can retest once I push Beta 3 (tomorrow probably)?

    Will do. I just tested with v2.02b2 by starting Route Here with a selected POI and I got the “Start point is far from road network” message. 
    Also, when I get this message it is not easy to recalculate the route. Now I have to change Transport Mode to trigger the recalculation.
    Maybe use the Reverse button as a Recalculate button when this happens? (There is nothing to reverse in this situation!)
    Will try again with vb3.

    The only reason you are seeing the message now is because of a bug where it is trying to get the route *before* it actually knows your current location and instead is using the location 0,0 in the middle of the ocean (which is kind of far from any roads) 😉   This will be fixed in Beta 3.

    In general though, there should never be a need to Recalculate. Any meaningful change made to a route automatically triggers it to recalculate.  And if it cannot recalculate because you are offline, it will do so when you go back online.
