How to turn on a setting that permits "U-turn"

On my Garmin Nuvi 650 (very similar to 660) when it calculates routes it always avoids U-turns and suggest that you go round the entire block without making a simple U-turn. How do you turn on the setting that allows u-turns?

Why the garmin nuvi 2595 is avoiding freeways


No. it depends on your settings. You can choose fastest route, shortest route or to avoid like toll, U-turn, ferry, or..... check your settings and reset it as suitable for your driving situation.

My older garmin nuvi 660 has worked for some yrs. but now it will not take me on any highways and if I'm on the highway it wants me to get off every exit - only wants to go back roads both in fastest way...


First - look at your Route Options and see if you have any avoidances set and whether they are really what you want. Check you other route option settings while you are there to be sure it hasn't been set to some mode you didn't intend (like pedestrian).

You will likely find that your problem is in your route options setting, but if it isn't, then log on to http://www.garmin.com, select the support button on top, and then select contact support. There is both a phone and an email option. Garmin offers free technical support for their units.

How do I set the GPS so it shows me the best route on main roads and not all the side, gravel and dirt roads


Click Tools.....Settings.....Navigation...

I like Faster Time.... you can change it to Shorter Distance or Off Road
depending on your gps

On Avoidances... I have it Enabled

click Avoidances.... I avoid U-Turns.....Traffic...Carpool Lanes...Unpaved Roads

click OK after your choices..

Good idea when you plan a route is to check it by arrowing down your map to make sure its the route you want to travel, if not go back to main page and click detour X to change route then you can save it if you like
