Welcome to Ride Planner. You have discovered the basic "features." Everything you reported is "normal."
1. You should understand that Ride Planner transfers points (start, stop, waypoints) to the GPS. It doesn't transfer the line of the route. The GPS computes the route from point to point using its own algorithm and map set. The math and the maps may not generate the same route you see in Ride Planner.
2. Ride Planner creates a separate route for each stop-to-stop segment. That's crazy, but that's the way it works. To get around this limitation, create your route with one start and one stop. To add additional turn or stopping points, r-click and Add Waypoint. You can add as many waypoints as you want.
3. Zoom way in when you add a waypoint and make sure it is on the road, not in the grass beside the road. Also, make sure it is on the lane going in the direction you want to go. If the waypoint isn't in exactly the right spot, your GPS will tell you to turn, go around the block, make a U-turn, or "navigate off-road."
4. If you want your GPS to follow the same path as the one you set up in Ride Planner, you have to put in more waypoints so the GPS calculation of the route matches Ride Planner's route.
