I don't know of any Garmin unit that can plan multiple stops. Problem with the Garmin, depending on your current location, it will go either the fastest time route, or the shortest distance. And sometimes, it can take different routes depending on what time of day. Most newer units take traffic into consideration based on time and location. You may want to play with the settings under avoidences.

How do I change a route on my garmin rv760 from the route the gps picks


There should be a built in trip planner app to set up your trip. If it is a long trip and you don't like the route just add a stop for gas or food along the route you want to take. If it is a short trip then get over the fact it is recommending something different, mute, it and drive how you want to go. It is a computer and does not know what you may know. As an alternative, add a via point by telling it a new destination while it already has one. For via points remember to work backwards. Final destination, then next to last and so on.

How do I change home address on my TomTom via 225?


On the GPS itself go to: Home location
Tap this button to set or change your Home location. You enter the address in the same way as you do when you plan a route.
Your Home location provides an easy way to plan a route to an important location.
For most people, your Home location will be your home address. How-ever, you might prefer to set the location to another regular destination,such as your workplace.

I type in the correct address and it's telling me to take alternate routs, which are way out of the intial way to my destination.Telling me to get off on side streets?


Untick shortest or fastest route

I have had this many times, and you wonder who they paid to make the route? Mr Ying Long a recent migrant?

If i know my way for most of the trip I only engage the GPS at the region I am unfamiliar with that way i only get to go down a one way street the wrong way once in a trip!

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.

Return trip


Have you selected how you want to get there, shortest distance, or fastest trip. You can set these under the wrench menu, If you aim for fastest, usually it will select all highway, if you select shortest distance it will calculate a trip that will drag you through every nook and cranny, usually quite entertaing (sightseeing)

Tomtom - time of arrival


It is possible that you have the TomTom set for "walking routes" or "bicycle routes" or "limited speed." (I have a TomTom One 3rd edition, so if you have a different model the menus/icons may be different, but it's worth a shot.)

Click on the main part of the screen, while on the main navigation screen. Then click on "Change preferences." Then click the blue arrow to scroll to the Preferences 3 of 5 page. Click on "Planning preferences." Choose the planning preferences that you want. Hope this helps...
