I would to ask everyone in the community how your workflow to create GPX file with turn-by-turn waypoints which works with IPBikes. Thanks in advance.

I use the free site BRouter-Web for route planning: https://brouter.de/brouter-web/

With that, on the top left corner, pick a profile that suits your riding style. "Trekking bike" will route you over cycle paths, "Fastbike" will prefer roads, and "Fastbike-lowtraffic" will prefer minor roads. I usually pick "Fastbike-lowtraffic" for roadbike routes and get very good results with that. Now, on the right side, click on the wrench icon to customize your profile. On there, scroll down, and set the option "turnInstructionMode" to "gpsies-style".
Now export your route as gpx (no need to include waypoints).
This gpx file can be loaded in IpBike and will have turn instructions. They don't always make perfect sense, but at least they alert me to look at the display when a turn comes up.

Another method that works is to plan the route with Locus Maps Pro on your phone, and export it as gpx. I only tried that with using Brouter as the offline routing method. The setup takes some effort, but there are good tutorials for that on Youtube.
Routes created like that will also have turn instructions that IpBike can use.
