I don't think the via points are via points in an A to B route. Like I said I routed 4100 miles to Alaska from Pennsylvania. It sounds like you are saying that each turn point is a via. It's not since the unit made the route. If I add a via point in basecamp it's announced as a via point on the turn by turn directions. There are well over 100 turns in the route I made (that the unit routed) and there is no issue with routing that way.
