Stopover vs. Waypoint


I hope this hasn’t been discussed somewhere else.

Is there a reason why we call it a stopover and not a waypoint or via-point? Stopover implicates that one should actually stop. It’s not really a pressing issue, but for example for Kurviger is sometimes receive the question why it’s called a stopover and I got to admit that this indeed is question, worth asking :).

Interesting question. :slight_smile:
Indeed stopover is not common among most routing engines.

My vote would go for the usual “Waypoint” term.

waypoint is also used in the response and so I would be fine with it. I also added a note to (possibly) rename point to waypoint in next API version:

Thanks for the discussion, I created a PR for this.
