How to 'generate alternative routes'

Helmut Mahrt shared this question 5 months ago

Now I have afforded myself the Gold subscription. Important motivation is the ability to "generate alternative routes". My expectation is the possibility to generate alternative tracks with the same routing profile as well as start, destination and via points - as this was possible in the past with the pairing with B-Router when Android had not yet prevented the exchange of POI's. Only - I do not recognize how I get to the alternative tracks. Previously you could set the same task multiple times in B-Router - with different results each time. In Locus, the same task leads to the same result - as is usual with all other routing engines, because they all always output the 'very best' result. So how do I get to the alternatives, next best results?

Good question. https://www.locusmap.app/comparison/ mentions "Alternate routes generating" for the Gold subscription, but I've not yet figured out what this actually means.

Hi, this needs to be implemented. First for offline router (Android). Alternative routes are high in my current priorities.

Should the comparison table be listing this as a feature when it's not yet implemented?

To be more exact: computing alternative routes has been available for some time when using GrapHopper routing engine (online), as well as computing round trips. Alternative routes are switched on by default for GrapHopper. What is to be done now: build this functionality for offline use (LoRouter offline a.k.a Brouter).

Alternative route:
