   Tap Keep to keep the current settings or Change to go into your profile and adjust your draft.

•  If your Route indicates "Route too long" or "Too many points", then you may need to adjust your End
   point a bit closer to your initial Start point. Apple has a route point limitation of 200 for manual or
   automatic routes.
