  1. Touch Tools
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch Navigation
  4. Touch Avoidances
  5. Touch the desired Avoidance to enable it

Sat Nav will not take me on motorways yet i havent got any avoidances set, once i get on motorway it wont redirect itself just tries to take me off motorway and go back. Also takes longest route possi

'Avoid Motorways' must be set in Avoidances, it is the only explanation, but there are also settings for 'Shortest Route' and 'Fastest Route'. It may be 'Shorter' not to go on the motorway.

You can also try resetting the unit and make sure you have the most up to date firmware and software.

specs, manual and support here. See page 19, Navigation Preferences and Avoidances.

I programed the post code of ferry terminal in southampton, fully expecting to bypass town on motorways but Garmin took me right through busy town centre - held up for hours. Why did it not go via...

you probably have it avoided on your Navigating....... try going to Tools.... Settings.... Navigation...

under Route preference chose faster time...

under Avoidances make sure you dont have motorway (highway) checked to avoid

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.
