Question about Garmin nuvi 765T GPS Receiver

2 Answers

My Garmin nuvi 765t is directing me on local roads instead of highways, even though I selected ''shortest time'' in my preferences. I've owned other nuvis in the past, and never had this problem. Any idea how to re-program the nuvi 765t to default to highway driving?

How do I get my Garmin 1350 gps to take the highways not the back roads. Have tried it on "shortest distance" and "fastest" doesn't work either way


Hello,

Setting the Avoidances to Enabled and checking off the box beside the Unpaved Roads should avoid most back roads unless the back roads are paved.
Setting the GPS Route Preference to the Faster Time will usually route via the highways unless it is actually faster to take the secondary roads.
In any case it is usually a good idea after creating the route to view the map and have familiarize yourself with the route. Via points can then be added to modify the route as necessary.

How do I get me garmin 1350 to take the highways instead of the back roads.


You can tell it to take the shortest route, and this will go on all roads including backroads, or you can tell it to take the fastest route and it will include highways. I would highly suggest you leave it on 'fastest route' setting.

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.

If you have set it to fastest, as opposed to shortest, it should take you on interstates for the most part.

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.

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
then NAVIGATION
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!

Shortest Route and Fastest Route Garmin Nuvi 200


The problem could be in your avoidance settings. I know when I was in Delaware, a 1/2 hour trip turned out to be a 3 hour detour because I had set to avoid highways.

In Garmin, if it's checked, it means AVOID. I know the documentation isn't clear but I've learned from experience (trial & error).

Sometimes it happens. Garmin isn't perfect but it beats looking at a map most of the time.
