New user here - apologies if duplicate. We're cruising, so all stops on my trip map were put in "by boat", but some lines on map go overland (Honningsvag, Norway to Alta, Norway to Tromso, Norway). And one went way out of the way until I changed it to "unknown" travel method, then it got better, but still not direct across the Norwegian Sea. (Lofoten Islands, Norway to Torshavn, Faroe Islands). Couldn't figure out a way to fix it. Help, please? Thanks!

There's unfortunately no good routing information available for boat travel. There are effectively two workarounds: 1) Put in one or more "middle of the sea waypoint" stops on your route, to approximate the route, or 2) become a supporting member, and use custom routes, where you can drag the mid-point of the route line to any new location, and then drag the mid-points of the two new segments as well, and so on, until you have exactly the route you want.
