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 and shortest way settings. Can anything be done to fix?

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.

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.

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!

The Garmin GPS' are designed to read major roads and highways this way, as this is how they are marked as you drive on them. There is no way to change this.
