I use PE primarily as a SatNav on my motorcycle and in the car but have issues with inconsistent routeing results from the Mapquest engine. Although the OSM road data is up to date in PE it appears that Mapquest is not using all the recent and available GPS track recordings from OSM in it’s algorithms
These are are not just on minor roads but on major highways and other infrastructures here in the UK and to some extent in Spain
If others are experiencing the same I will post a couple of examples
After a little more digging https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/MapQuest it would appear that PE and it’s current routing engine may have come up against a brick wall “MapQuest ceased offering an OpenStreetMap service (Open MapQuest) in 2015” What might that mean for PE going forward?
A couple of interesting cycle apps there Johan – do you know which routeing engine they use?
Here is an example I encounter regularly. Although there are plenty of GPS track traces in available in OSM, Mapquest has very few. This suggests to me that the OSM/Mapquest “divorce” is the issue
The A49 road has been around since Emperor Hadrian came to the UK (!) bus you can see PE routes southbound on this bypass but the northbound route, even with the addition of Control Points, does not recognise it
I regularly submit tracklogs for this route but they never show up in the Mapquest displayed tracks on their website
