You can try and see if the right Preference is chosen on menu..... Tools ..... Settings.....Map.... under Avoidances press the Tab..... make sure you just have the correct things you want to avoid chosen if Highway is checked uncheck it.

When you travel and set a place to go to, go down the turn by turn direction before you go and see if its the way you like to travel..... if not you can go to the main menu and take a Detour, it will reroute to a different set of road

What is your review of Panchayat Development Minister in Chhattisgarh?


Nearly the whole world has never heard of him, sorry.

Also since there is no problem here to be solved by Fixya, your post (and possibly him too) is a waste of space.

Why is it when I try to call certain num or anyone calls this num it goes to my voicemail


Your description of your problem is rather brief. Trying to read between the lines, I gather several questions:
Why is it when I try to call a certain number it goes strictly to their voicemail?
When somebody tries to call my number, it directly goes to my voicemail?
The general reason a call goes directly to voicemail is that your phone is off or in the area of limited or no cellular service. Normally if you are on the phone when someone calls, the phone notifies you that a call is waiting. However if your phone is off or in a fringe area or where there is poor cellular service such as in a large building, subway system or the like, calls to your phone are routed directly to voicemail.
The same applies if you call someone else. If there is no cell service to their phone or their phone is off, your call to them is routed directly to voicemail. You'll probably find this problem more common in rural areas where the cellular services poor, or in a large city with tall buildings that block cell signals such as in New York City.

Most SmartPhones also have the ability to send an inbound phone call directly to voicemail. This can happen several ways.
1. When the phone rings, and the user does not wish to receive the call, depending on the cellular operating system (iPhone, Android), the user may make a sliding motion on their touchscreen sending the call directly to voicemail. I do this a lot with unfamiliar numbers that are often telemarketers. Anybody that really wishes to get a hold of me will leave a voicemail message and I'll return their call.
2. Calls originating from contacts saved in your contact list may also be sent directly to voicemail. I have saved literally hundreds of phone numbers of telemarketers under multiple "telemarketer" contacts in my cell phone and sent them all directly to voicemail so I do not see bothered if they continue calling.
Hope this answers your question. If not, please clarify your question by providing more details.

Rural addresses - Township & Range roads


With the Garmin Mapsource program just type in the name of the road and search. It shows up, and it's not saskatoon but corman park, although near to saskatoon, it's actually in a different area. This also happens when cities grow and small rural area's become part of the bigger picture, it's stil located where it historically was...looking for places can be sort of tedious. If I need to go somewhere, If i can't find it I ask for coördinates...the other way of getting there...A friend of mine lives on kitely line near jasper in Ont. the GPS knows the place as Line 3...huh?
