There is a problem with the map not routing properly.
In Google Maps you can but in gmap-pedometer.com the route is "blocked"?
You cannot route from these Lan/Lon points ==>
I can't guarantee that this site will produce the same results as google maps routing. Although all the data used here comes from their services, they may be on slightly different versions or drawing from different datasets and I wouldn't be able to tell.
In the case of those two particular points, I found I was able to route between them if I switched to "automatically (for cyclists)". This suggests to me that Google feels this is a non-pedestrian road, and that's why it was taking the long way around. There's a road near me where it does the same thing (even though there's a sidewalk... their data isn't perfect.)
Hope this helps, and sorry for the slow reply!
Sorry to say the new routing software works, but....
is total crap compared to the way it worked before the GUI change.
Please undo whatever changes were made to the routing algorithm.
