    What model do you have? If it's a Garmin, you should be able to find a setting called "Avoidances" and be able to place a checkmark on "Avoid Highways" and make sure that the Avoidances is enabled.

Have you selected how you want to get there, shortest distance, or fastest trip. You can set these under the wrench menu, If you aim for fastest, usually it will select all highway, if you select shortest distance it will calculate a trip that will drag you through every nook and cranny, usually quite entertaing (sightseeing)

Don't use the letter 'I' for Interstate, just enter the number or use Route 71, route 480. Make sure you have updated maps.

Why my garmin nuvi 2595 LMT GPS is taking me off freeways


Some GPS has this problem once in a while. When it happens, turn the GPS off and restart it again. Problems should be solved.

It sometimes tells me to turn the wrong way. It sometimes takes me on side streets and highways instead of main highways.


On the Nuvi units go to Tools....Settings...Navigation select Faster Time for Route Preference, and Avoidance Enable press enable make sure highways is not checked as places to avoid then click Back

Bad directions


It sounds as though your avoidances is set for "Highways." From the main menu, press, "Tools" then "Settings" and then "Navigation." Press "Avoidances" and see if there is a check mark next to "Highways." If there is, press it. The check mark should disappear. Let me know if this helps.

I updated my c330 streetpilot and now it is sending me routes I don't want to take. How can I change the routes or delete certain highways from the route?


You can tell the unit if you would rather go Shorter Distance or Faster Time. You can also tell the unit you would like to avoid highways. But you cannot tell the unit you would like to avoid CERTAIN highways, nor can you delete individual roads from the unit. If you do not like the route the unit selects, you can press the Detour button at the bottom of the screen (once the route has been selected). If you know a better way to begin your journey, simply go that way and the unit will recalculate your route.

Off-Ramp errors


According to the Garmin site:

Question: Why does my nuvi route me off highways and through small side
roads?

Answer:
If your nuvi routes you off of the highway and puts you on small side
streets, usually there is a simple navigational settings change that should
resolve the issue for you.

From the 'Where to?'/'View Map' screen:

Touch the 'Wrench' icon.
Touch 'Navigation' icon.¹

On this menu there will be a 'Route Preference' and 'Avoidances' menu
option.

If you have the 'Route Preference' set to 'Shorter Distance', this may
sometimes route you off of a highway to put you on a more direct route. Try
setting the 'Route Preference' to 'Faster Time' and see if that makes a
difference in how the unit routes you.

Another setting that can be adjusted is the 'Avoidances' option, touch on
'Enabled' next to 'Avoidances'
A list of avoidances will appear, on that list if 'Highways' is checked
then the unit thinks that you do not want to travel on highways and
therefore routes you off of them. Simply uncheck the box next to 'Highways'
and that should resolve the issue.

I had "highways" listed, so I'm hoping this fixes my problem tomorrow.
