Hello Everyone, I just uploaded to the server new beta maps of Austria and Italy (Germany is still uploading, please don't download until 02:00 CET (02.Dec) – or before it has reached 405 Mbit.
Autorouting in Mapsource works around 50% better if used via car/motorcycle faster route. Now shorter Distance will actually work pretty well too – especially on longer distances and in combination with mode :bicycle. In Mapsource I would advise moving the slider a little bit to prefer highways if using "shorter distance". What I don't know is how well these maps work on your GPS – therefore this is a beta release. On my etrex Vista HCx I could notice a little bit improvement – I do think on Oregon/Dakota or other modern units Improvements will be even bigger – please report back.
Also Autorouting against the traffic flow (if cycleway=opposite; opposite_track; opposite_lane will now be tried to avoided). And Delivery only avoids Primaries/Secondaries – but does not block them. (this was actually already on last map Update)
