Segments instructions ignoring previous segment direction/bearing


Thanks for you awesome service!

I’m designing a car/hgv routing app which goes via certain predefined way points and I would love to use your directions API.
I am tryging to generate route directions between multiple coordinates (points), but after I reach a way point, the next segment starts in opposite direction. (1st picture).

How can I handle it to follow the direction/bearing of the previous segment (as it is in 2nd picture).

I already tried providing bearings and it seems it works, but how can I know the bearing for each point before sending the request?

Is there any other setting I am missing?

This is my request:

{“coordinates”:[[23.40451,42.64722333333334],[23.399855236339576,42.65280056336096],[23.385444099999997,42.658795399999995]],“maneuvers”:“true”,“bearings”: [[270,0],[270,0]],“roundabout_exits”:“true”}


there is the continue_straight parameter that should provide exactly this functionality.

Note, that this’ll of course apply to all waypoints.

Best regards

Hey, again and thank you for your time!

But still the continue_straight paramter is not working on boulevrads and bigger roads - it suggest to do an illegal U-turn here on a two lane in direction road. Am I missing something?

Even if I pass bearing or next point in the proper direction, still the same.

Here is the request:

Hi @midori_san,

that doesn’t look right. Could you open an issue for this and provide some info as well as the full request (url + body)?

Best regards
