Current: BRouter (web) does not generate U-turns.

Desired: Brouter (web) generates U-turns.

Generating U-turns (180° track returns) is very valuable. By generating U-turns you can avoid unclear or false turn indications.
Especially when navigating with "display off" and with TTS audio indication mainly, U-turns can prevent very serious wrong turn instructions.
How the confusion can arise without those U-turns can be found in the attachment with very short track examples including optimization proposal.
Examples of the current BRouter functionality and the desired more optimal function inclusive U-turns can all be found in the zip attachment here.
