Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Refuses to consider certain border crossings

I live in Ontario, 50 miles East of Port Huron Michigan. When I save a Michigan address, the system acknowledges the correct mileage to the destination, but plots a thousand mile trip using Erie Pennsylvania, and Cincinnati as route points.

I reentered the destination after each exit on the trip. It was only when I was on the bridge crossing from Canada to the US, that the system acknowledged the direct route, instead of the circuitous one.

I used the reset button on the back of the Garmin 650 several times, but no difference

    Thanks for the clues. The answer ended up being my removal of 'Toll Roads' under Avoidances. It then calculated the sensible route. It seems that faster time/shorter route are relative, but avoidances seem to be very extreme, in that it plots a 13 hour, 1000 mile trip to avoid a toll road (in this case a bridge) which would be a 15 minute, 5 mile trip.
