Time being the same problem here ... and finding OSMAND working
differently every time I do jump into the car does not help :( I still
keep trying to set routes as I used to and have to try and remember what
the new sequences are ... I'm doing a lot less driving these days and
only to established sites so the time even to fix things like road
colours is not worth the effort.

The A46 is a 'nice' test case as the main route has many poorly designed
roundabouts and at some times of the day the whole Evesham area just
grinds to a halt. Stratford is just as bad and the new roads planned
will make things even worse rather than helping. We don't stand much
chance of designing a harmonized routing process when the planners can't
even fix the problems they create :(
