What is the best website/software for sophisticated route planing ?

Hey altogether,

I'm looking for a possibility to plan routes (mostly for hiking or cycling). So far, I miss some features, especially clicking on a way to see its tags (and also nodes/POIs), which is really important when modifying the calculated route.

I really like Openrouteservice [1] and I've also stumbled across BRouter [2] which seems to be highly customizable, but both lack the option to easily check the details of ways/POIs on the map.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

Locus Map (on Android) integrates with BRouter, using it as the engine for its route planner.  I'm impressed that BRouter is even effort-aware, avoiding unnecessary hills in bike- or walking mode.

Now if only Locus had an inspect-OSM feature...

In Garmin's Mapsource you can create weblinks.

Hello Mojo,

you are aware of this OSM wiki page?

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Routing

All OSM based routing things should be listed there.

I quite like the route planning at https://graphhopper.com.

Beyond what it does on osm.org, it allows via points and many more modes of travel.
