If you have seen incorrect cues on a route planned using our site, such as a cue being listed as a right instead of a left turn, you have likely clicked in the middle of an intersection when planning your route.
When you are planning a route and click in the middle of an intersection, often times our routing service thinks you went past the turn by 5 feet or so, since you can easily click 5 feet past the middle of the intersection without realizing it. When this happens, the next click generates directions that assume you need to turn around 180 degrees and travel five feet before the turn. Hence a right can become a left, and vice versa.
- NEVER click inside an intersection. Always passed or before.
- Keep your route clicks somewhat close together so if you have to make an adjustment, it doesn’t affect a large section of the route.
- Zoom in on the map to see side-streets to make sure you are clicking on the desired road.
- Having good cues means you’ll have good directions when navigating with a cue sheet, Garmin device, or our app for iPhone and Android.
