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.

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.

How do you select most use of freeways to avoid back roads? My Magellan was easy to use in that regard.


Hello,

Go to the Tools > Settings > Navigation > and press the button under Avoidances.
Use the arrow down and place a check mark in the box beside Unpaved Roads and then press OK.
Also, go to the Tools > Settings > Navigation > and setting the Route Preference to Faster Time will usually route using freeways. This is not always the case, as some secondary roads are paved and the unit will route to them if it calculates that this will be a faster route.
It is usually a good idea to familiarize yourself with an unknown route. This can be done after creating the route and touching the map screen. Zoom out to view sections of the route. Via points can then be added to modify the route as necessary.

I just upgraded my garmin c340 and now it tells me to get off of the freeways and to take side roads..i do not know how to fix this. i just returned from a family reunion in oregon, i live in denver, co....


You can set the unit to avoid highways. It sounds as though this setting has been turned on. Press the wrench key at the bottom of the main screen. The press "Navigation." If "Avoidances" says "Enabled", press it. If there is a checkmark next to "Highways", press and remove it. Then press "OK". This should correct the problem.

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.

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.

Took me on a 2 lane route for 100 miles instead of freeway!


These things are miles from perfect. However, if you knew of the freeway route, you should have taken it. Remember, a PND is only useful when you don't know where you are and can often be confusing if you're using it to direct you to place that you know.
