IRL, I just ride the way that I want to go and meet back up with the plotted route a mile or so down the line. That mile is peppered with suggestions to make u-turns and various re-routes, though - a pain in the butt if you're at a good spot in an audiobook.
I hate it when my 1030 starts throwing out u turns to get back to the route I just had to leave because of construction, fallen tree whatever. 1030+ is supposedly much better, and faster, at re-routing mid way through a route.

Also, try the easy route app. Itís great at generating routes quickly and generally doesnít do stuff like that.
