Anyone else using Scenic for route mapping?

Last year I added the Scenic app to my iPhone so I could plan routes in Furkot and then follow them on my rides. Today I tried something new with Scenic; I took a meandering ride for a couple of hours and then, after lunch. I chose my home as the destination in Scenic and set it to provide me with a 'curvy' route back. Other settings are 'fast' 'efficient', and 'short'.

Overall, I think it did a nice job of choosing my route, and it took me on several roads I'd never traveled before. But it had one annoying glitch -- 3 times in the 60-mile journey it sent me down a road only to essentially turn around or do a little loop, then return via the same road to the main route. I can't seem to find any way to fix or avoid that.

Anyone experienced the same and/or come up with a fix?

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
