Can anyone help me with Motion Paths?

It's my first attempt to use motion paths. I'm trying to get a car to drive to different spots on a road map. However, I can't figure out how to make the car advance the entire distance using a single motion path. To make it work, I ultimately did three slides, but it isn't a smooth movement. It has a slight delay between each slide. Nothing in the tutorials addressed this. If you can help, I'd be much appreciative.

There's an option to orient to motion path. Here's more info:

You have a couple of options to pause the motion path animation. Because the motion path is synced with your timeline, you can:

  • Show layer and set the layer properties to pause the base layer timeline
  • Use cue points to pause the timeline at specific times. You'll need an event to resume the timeline. 

I've included both examples in the attached source file.
