It just felt completely unnecessary to me. No need for the Robin reference, other than to excite Robin fans.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Blake receiving the coordinates, then heading towards the waterfall as John Blake, would have left me much happier. It would have instilled a sense that it's "Batman" that continues on, and not the possibility of Robin instead. The other thought behind the Robin reference, is that Blake respects Bruce and "Batman" too much to simply replace him, so he'll take on his own entity as "Robin", and that put a horrible taste in my mouth as a way to end this franchise.
