Maps - Straight vs Curved Line

Travel Forums System Talk Maps - Straight vs Curved Line

I am trying to update my map to have straight lines instead of curved but it keep reverting back to curved. How can I fix this? Can I do it for all stops at once? Can I do it for all maps in the future?

Also, how to I delete an old map that I don't want?

Nevermind I figured it out and now can't figure out how to delete this post!

It has to do with the method of travel. Road travel will pick a route on the road. Airline will give you a straight or curved line - you pick. But sometimes no matter what I do, I can't get a segment to have the kind of line I want.

Yes, that happens to me occasionally. And sometimes if I choose road it insists on following a different route from the one we actually took, so I just add some extra 'stops' to persuade it to detour!
