Question about Garmin GPS
Welcome to FixYa:
I am not sure which model of the Nuvi you are using but I have the Nuvi 660 and can feel your pain. What use is going over a mountain or down roads made of gravel and miles from civilization only because it is technically a "shorter route"
So here are the basic directions to change that setting and get the Nuvi to keep you on the highways and interstates. If it varies too much, either respond with your model number or go to Garmin.com and get the manual for your model:
Go to SETTINGS
click on ROUTE PREFERENCES
You should find what you need here, but to tell the Nuvi which type of roads to avoid and which ones to stick to:
go back to the SETTINGS menu
touch NAVIGATION again
and click on AVOIDANCES
Hope this helps and be sure to keep us updated!
