The changes were based on requests from users going back over a year. The new method is more simplified and cleaner. This modified process also allowed them to bring back the ability to tap-hold a spot on the map and select it as a stop point. Up to now, this was impossible. This is also something users have been asking for for a long time.
It also makes sense logically—if there is no "add stop" button, and you realize "Oh, I need to go to the bank first," you navigate to the bank. Now you (1) don't have to make the decision whether to separate the routes until after you already chose where else to go, and (2) don't have to bring up the menu at all—you can just use the left-button "swipe to navigate" feature. It's more intuitive for those who might never bring up the menu or look past the first "navigate" button, and you only need to do it once to know it's there. I've seen consistent behavior on other GPS systems, and it's always a lot easier this way than it is with some kind of "route planning" feature—which is only really useful if you can have and optimize multiple mid-route stops anyway.
