  • I thought once again about the problem and I don't know why enabling "Small local roads" is essential in this case. Both routing engines (Navigator Free's and OSRM) have to use small local roads, because route finishes on the small local road.

But in Navigator Free with additional, incomprehensible lap around the town.
