I find it's easier to do the initial planning on MyRoute using Google maps, and Streetview, then export, open in BC and check it's all on the right roads (it usually needs a tweak or two) before sending to the Zumo.
MyRoute also allows you to automatically add points along the route, which I turn to 'unannounced' in BC.
Hi, I've used the MyRouteApp, but find it too did the trying to send me to the end destination straight away.
I assume you use the "gold" membership to get the Google maps facility.
Do you save it as gpx1.0 or gpx1.1?

I've not tried the MyRoute app, but a friend used it on a tour around France, Luxembourg, Germany & Belgium earlier in the month and found it was fine left to make up it's own routes, but it did get lost and confused following the routes I'd planned and used on my Garmin.
The Tom Tom and an older Zumo also used in the same group following my routes were generally the same, and was confirmed with bike to bike comms.

I save to GPX 1.1, which I believe also has the track, which also shows up when it's loaded in BC, so I can easily spot where the route strays from what I planned in MyRoute, and correct it.

Yes, I have Gold membership, so not sure what's not included in the freebie version, I've planned several years of UK and Euro tours, and am pretty happy with my planning routine, which always starts out on MyRoute where I do a lot of dabbling with ideas for routes which I don't find is as easy on BC.
