Straight line versus Drive options mileage reading on mymaps

Travel Forums System Talk Straight line versus Drive options mileage reading on mymaps

I have just planned my first route. I selected Car / Straight line option initially which showed the route to be 1016 km. When I switched to the Car / Drive option, the map changed and showed the correct road route but the km/miles did not change.

I put the same route into google maps and it reads 1245 which I know is about right.

Have I done something wrong or is this a feature!

In my stats it also shows 1016 km.

The stats currently only show the distance as the crow flies. They don't follow the roads, etc. One of these days I hope to fix that.
