I need to be able to start and end a route in the middle of a road segment as opposed to a vertex/intersection. I know that you can disable snapping when stating your start/end but the route still shows the start and end snapping to a vertex.

Yes, since 4.5.25 it is possible, though Beta/Experimental. There are some todos left, e.g. if a turn restriction follows the first segment, adjusting the SOAP-Service-Interface, using heuristics ...

For a first impression, start the WebTestUI as usual, disable snapping and select the OverlayRouter instead of the DefaultRouter...

Thanks Carsten. I will check it out now – maw269 Oct 31 '12 at 14:00
It works great Carsten. This is an excellent update of OSM2PO. I need to check back on the OSM2PO site often, as I see you update frequently. I See what you mean with "if a turn restriction follows the first segment." This is a minor issue that I can work with, but will be looking forward to the fix. Great work as always with OSM2PO! – maw269 Oct 31 '12 at 15:25
The issues above are fixed now. If you are interested in an intermediate version, please contact me via email. – Carsten Nov 4 '12 at 18:07
Any idea when the official release is scheduled? – maw269 Nov 5 '12 at 20:08
