Fast food: all the options were at the end (Yelp results - default), and the "calculating time off route" never went away for any of them.
Bank/ATM: same "calculating..." error, although 4Square (default) results came up both at the beginning and end of the route.
Mall: time off route was calculated for some, but not all. List returned by 4Square was ridiculous (combination of malls, strip centers, individual stores, mobile phone kiosks, etc)
Convenience store: everything on the list (4Square - default) appeared to be a supermarket. The (24) symbol is misleading, since some might assume it meant that these stores are open 24 hours. They aren't.
Regarding the "calculating time off route" error - please provide me the exact time it happened (if not for this case then next time it happens) so we can debug the problem.
Regarding Foursquare results- obviously we can't control this provider's results and quality.

When I went to the list of reports on my route, however, all of them were close to the end.
We are aware of this issue. It will be handled in the future.
