I have experienced the same in the past, and again just this weekend on a 1000-mile round trip. Not helping was the issue with dozens (hundreds?) of missing map tiles at lower zoom levels. They have been the same tiles which have not appeared at the same zoom levels for dozens of map updates, including changes within those tiles which should have forced a rebuild of the tile, and also different client revisions, clearing of map cache, etc. It's quite repeatable which tiles don't appear.

More servers doesn't necessarily equate to the ability to do longer distance routing. However, it can help. What needs as much work is their routing algorithm optimization. I'm not sure what other tricks navigation providers can employ, but hopefully they are mining all possible sources of helpful info to make their routing code better and better.

I can confirm the same behavior on 1200 mile trip from today and yesterday. Constant messages of "proceed to highlighted road" and "recalculating route"

LDR does not work, as far as my experience is concerned. Chennai - Bangalore routing gives Uh - Oh message. I've to select a point inside Tamilnadu (The state in which Chennai is located), reach that point, cross the state border and than pick my destination in Bangalore and calculate my route again.

I have also noticed this problem for the first time yesterday with client 3.5.1.4 on Android. Very annoying.

Never had this problem before, but it's the first time I do this route with 3.5.1.4.

What do you guys think about something like this? A temporary subscription when you need to do longer routes?

I think the problem with longer routes is that the routing server just can't handle it yet. The distance has increased a bit in the past year, and will probably continue to. But it's not like they can just flip some magic switch and allow longer routing.

Yeah that seems to be the problem, that's why I thought if they had small subscriptions they'll have more money and time to put in the servers to create even better distances :)

Seems it gone down again, I was able to navigate to Fügen in Tirol. Now it gives a time out again.
