Reversing a route in Streets & Trips plots a too long trip

Microsoft Streets and Trips has created a perfectly good route between home and my daughter's dorm, 199 miles away. But when I hit "Reverse Route" for the trip back to the house, it changes the route and adds about 24 miles. I would expect Streets & Trips to just allow me to retrace my exact route back the way I came.

Same thing happens if I reverse the order of the 2 endpoints in the route planner and ask it to recalculate.

Why this strange behavior?

With out knowing any more specifics... could be due to one-way streets... freeway access, construction, or other obstacles.

No it's not that, because I can actually drive back the same route. In this particular case, I know the way. I'm just a GPS junkie who likes to watch myself movin' on down the road.

As NightHawkFan suggests above, more specifics might help. I am not aware of any inherent reason why S&T should do as you describe.

Have you looked, step-by-step, at the driving directions to see if that sheds any light?

Check where the route deviates from where you think it should go. Somewhere shortly after that there may be a "break" in the map data on the return route that is forcing the route to go elsewhere.
