• I like Windy app as guide for my trekkins but I don't trust the suggested paths.
    I tried it on a well known area and the app suggested a path which is longer than the correct one. Settings are correct.
    Path suggested by the app (6h 40min)

    Same path forcing app to use a different way:
    (4h 19min)

    Why?
    How to fix it?

    @gicla Hello, what type of road did you select? Also how did you manage to change the first suggestion?


  • @korina Hi, from Options I selected "Walk/Trekking" and "Short" tracks so I was expecting the App to really suggest the shortest available path.
    In order to force the app to select the shortest path I had to insert a passthrough point infact, as you can see on the map, the track is red from the passthrough point to the end of the track.

    @gicla Hello, the reason why Windy Maps did not show you the second route is because there is restricted entry. As you can see on the map, the red color indicates that the are has some kind of entry restriction.
