    WP8 Mapping APIs - Detecting Detours

    Hi - I'm looking for thoughts on the best way to detect a detour.
    In my application I'm receiving geocoordinate updates and I can certainly constantly recalculate the route - but I would also need option to detect if the user has taken a detour. (I can certainly look at the distance to the destination to see if it's increasing vs decreasing but I was looking for something more elegant.)

    * Is there an API/example of a means of testing to see if a geocoordinate is on (or close to) a recorded route?

    There is no API, so maybe you could try the distance same time with direction.
