Question about Tomtom GO 920 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

No matter how I program my unit, ie. fastest route or shortest route, it always wants me to go through a town rather than by-pass it, on my way to the cottage. And I know my way is better than where my Tomtom 920 is taking me. What am I not doing right ?

Yes, whats the difference between fast route & short distance under the navagation application on the Garmin nuvi 1450 LMT? Please somebody!


This is real simple, fast route on all GPS,S including yours simply means fatest route by time to get there based on best roads and speed limits. Shortest route might be shorter in miles per say, but not always the fastest, because it will take you threw neighborhoods or back roads , school zones etc.... So, most the time you will and should use fastest route as it is best time, fuel economy and safest. Please if this has helped you, then respond with 4 thumbs up and a small positive testamony.

A free tip for South Africa (and other countries): Always use the option of finding the fastest route and never the the shortest route. It is not specifically mentioned, but the fastest route is always the safest route as well :)

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.

It never lets me take the freeway!


You have the "avoid freeways & major roads" option selected. this is in setup which is completely different from the shortest route option.

You should do the following: Changing the Navigation Settings;
Touch Tools>settings>Navigation. There you'll find how the sysytem will calculate your route.Route Preference.........Faster Time....Shorter Distance.......Off Road....Avoidances,very helpfull....Restore original navigation settings.
Hope this will help you,

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.

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.

Poor directions


Go to setting (the wrench icon) press it, then look for Navigation, then check Route Preference to see if it is set for either fastest time or shortest distance. If you want shortest distance, the upgrade most likely reset it to Fastest Time (default).
