Nick, this is correct. Both sections [River Trent (tidal section - Cromwell to Keadby)] and [River Trent (tidal section - Keadby to Trent Falls)] are designated as [Tidal rivers].

On my development machine it goes via the T&M and the L&L as you'd expect. So it looks like some change to the database since I last downloaded it has changed things. Am investigating.

When I looked at my preferences, they had "Neutral" for Tidal Rivers. When I set them to "NEVER" I then got the right route.

Can you double check that your preferences haven't got themselves modified (that would be another, odder and harder to track, bug).


Shultzy (updater)

I've checked again this morning and the [Tidal Rivers] are still set to "NEVER" in my preferences. I've checked it with [apply] and [save] and it makes no difference to the planned route, it still shows both tidal sections in the route.


Nick Atty (administrator)

Can you check this is still happeneing?

I've just tried again and changing the tidal preference toggles it between using the Trent to Keadby when at "Neutral" and the T&M and Hudderfield when at "NEVER"

One sudden thought: have you got yourself on "quickest route", not "preferred"? That doesn't take into account preferences [I wonder if I actually need this any more, or would be better obliterating it]

I've done as you requested.

Creating the route via the planning wizard takes me down the tidal Trent. using the wizard there is no option obvious to use "preferred" over "Quickest"

When I went and changed my preferences and saved them as you suggested, recalculating the route takes me via the L&L.

I was expecting the app to use my preferences at all times so removing the quickest option or setting the default to use "Preferred" would seem to me to be a good idea.


Nick Atty (administrator)

Have removed "quickest" option, and I don't think this is happening any more.

Closing automatically, stayed too long in feedback state. Feel free to re-open with additional information if you think the issue is not resolved.
