The Route Planner Pro has changed a bit on our new website. The ability to plan routes that deviate from the hiking network is now integrated into our node planner (continue reading below image):
If you open our route planner, you can press the magnet symbol in the upper right corner. If you then choose Offgrid (auto) (automatic route planning) or Offgrid (manual) (connecting places manually), you can select places on the map and plan a route that deviates (partially or completely) from the hiking network.
You can switch between Node and Offgrid mode to create a route that runs partly along nodes and partly away from the node network.
