I received a very weird response making a route request for a roundtrip in Italy with the following waypoints:
A) MELZO VIA PALMIRO TOGLIATTI 23 => latLng = 45.488196,9.418415
B) TORINO VIA GUGLIELMO REISS ROMOLI 44/11 => latLng = 45.1100990,7.6940313
C) SASSARI REGIONE SANTA BARBARA 72 => latLng = 40.4197842,8.7696185
D) MELZO VIA PALMIRO TOGLIATTI 23 => latLng = 45.488196,9.418415
The problem arise for the leg going from B to C (and back from C to D) where 6 ferrys are proposed (!!!), while the straightforward solution would be a two way ferry from Genoa to Sardinia or possibly a ferry from Civitavecchia to Sardinia.
Instead the Mapquest route from B to C includes:
1) one ferry leg from Genoa to Olbia (Sardinia)
2) one ferry leg from Olbia to Civitavecchia
3) one ferry leg from Civitavecchia to Arbatax (Sardinia)
What is the reliability of Mapquest routing service when ferry legs are needed ?
