When I added a path to the original map, my algorithm created a detour by choosing a path from the beginning to the end that wouldn't go through the path I added.

Hi, In the iD editor the connecting/connected nodes are coloured grey while unconnected nodes are coloured white and are slightly larger. If you wish to test/check if nodes are connected or not then right click on a node, if it's connected you'll have an option to "Disconnect" it (blue arrows, shortcut D). Or a simple test is to left click hold and drag the node, if it's connected all ways will be dragged, don't forget to Undo the temporary drag. I think that's right!

If you can link to the added path it could be checked for you.

I often spot a break or a mis-tagged way when I use a router and it avoids the obvious. Unfortunately routers can't be used instantly because routers don't check for the latest data so often.

Thank you for your response. Due to the error of map information, the accuracy of my algorithm is sometimes very poor, so I am considering using GPS observation points to detect map information errors, then submit the data to the database in a certain format to automate the update, but I don't know how to do that technically. I asked a similar question earlier, and I was told that it wouldn't be appropriate to use the program to automatically update. But I find it a bit of a chore to correct by hand because there are so many map errors.

You may not have a break in your ways. It is more likely to be that the router isn't using your TOO recent data yet. Give it a few days.
