Best source for customizing ride routes

I have been trying to customize ride routes to send/save to my phone and have not been very successful. Google Maps allows me to type in my beginning and ending destinations, and then I'm able to drag the cursor to different points on the map which will modify the route to my liking. When I'm satisfied with my custom route, there is an option to either text/email that route to my phone. After I receive that text/email, I find that it is just the original default directions that Google had initially displayed before any modification to the route. BTW, my phone I'm using is a regular IPhone 6.

Can any help point me in the right direction to an effective app I can use for customizing (and saving!) riding routes? I really prefer to use something free. Any help is appreciated!

(I've tried Rever, but even that is a bit goofy)

I feel your pain. I too had the same problem. One of the things you can do is add stops to your route, to force the route you want. Put the stops right on your route so it doesn't make you get off the freeway or take some other unnecessary turn. Hope that helps.

Here are a couple of popular ones.

I like to use RouteConverter. Go to the downloads section and click on Webstart.
