everytime I try to build a cross-country route, I cannot add times to stops...i.e. I cannot put a stop in a hotel with a departure time
You can add an amenity stop by clicking the 'add amenity' option when planning. You may also add an amenity stop around an existing waypoint by clicking the pen icon to the right of it.
Any departure times and dates can also be edited by clicking the pen icon to the right of a waypoint.
Or is something broken when you attempt to use these features?
