I've set up a route incorporating vias or shaping points.
Today when navigating the route, the 3590 kept trying to get me back to one of the vias on the route. It kept recalculating and suggesting a return to that via point for the next 35 miles until I reached my destination.
When I got home, I analyzed the route up close and discovered that the via was a few feet off the road. Is there a way to instruct the 3590 to ignore that via and continue with the route?
With my old 1490 and every prior GPS, in such a situation, it would eventually automatically ignore the via and continue on to the destination.
My 1490 has had problems with routes occasionally also. There are times when I want to leave the route to sightsee or just to take a different road. This is what I have come up with.
I usually do not keep favorites on my unit. When I plan my trip, I enter all the vias or waypoints into favorites. I do not create a route. Here is a sample of my next trip. All points are in alphabetical as well as chonological order.

I GOTO> the first favorite. As I approach, I can touch stop. Then GOTO> the next. At the end of the day I delete the ones I have passed. As you can see, our pitstops are at Mcdonalds. I can take the bypass around the town without messing up the route.
Yes, touch the information bar at the top of the screen. Scroll down and you will see green GO! buttons for each of the segments in the total trip.
Thanks, I'll give it a try.
