    Hi - thanks for replying



    My nav preferences are indeed on "Faster Time"...

  • handbagsatda May 08, 2009

    Hi - I just re-set to factory settings and did a short journey that I know the route for and the machine took me via the main road, so I'm hoping that this has done the trick.



    Yes, I'm set to avoid unpaved roads as of a check just now.



    Thanks so much for your help.

    Can you try Reseting your garmin back to factory settings? I know that it sucks having to put all your favs back in. There might also be a patch on the Garmin site for this. You also have your route settings to avoid unpaved roads I assume?

Set the fastest route. The shortest route will take you off motorways and up narrower roads. Garmin satnavs know the difference between fastest and shortest.

No detailed maps found that support routing the streetpilot cannont be used without them garmin streetpilot c510


You're unit is probably missing the gmapprom.img file (failed update maybe?).

Try contacting Garmin - if you've got registered maps they may send you another copy (although big file - 100+MB)

You might be choosing Shortest Route and that's exactly what it will do - find the shortest route, no matter what the quality of the roads. You should try choosing Fastest Route.

Country roads issue!!


I think you've probably got the unit set to 'Shorter Distance' rather than 'Faster Time' in the navigation preferences.

This can be changes by navigating from the main screen to Setup (the spanner icon at the bottom) --> Navigation --> Route Preference
