Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
I recently took a business trip to Northamton from Hull. From Hull to Northamton I programmed the Nuvi to take the fastest route (was suggested by colleague), as this would take me via the motorway ?? Anyway it started to direct me to the A roads, so I carried on driving (pressed detour) and that seemed to solve the problem. However, on the way back (Northampton-Hull), I had really problems and it took me along all the A roads and every way I tried it just seemed to take me the - SHORTEST ROUTE (the longest route), as I have had the same problem. ?????????
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.
