How to Avoide a Street in XXL

edited November -1 in TomTom Car Forum
I have an older TomTom. When I need to avoid a part of the route, I just go to Find Alternative and delete a congested highway or anything else that I don't like.

Now, I bought for my wife XXL. It what was supposed to be a better model. Yesterday I tried to avoid a highway because my wife does not like driving there. I could not find "avoid part of the route" option in XXL. Where did it move?

Your help is much appreciated in advance.

    Once the route is established, and you're in the Driving View, tap the middle of the screen.

    The 'Find Alternative' will become active and there will be a variety of choices offered, including "Avoid part of route'.

    This is exactly the problem with the new GPS - it does not have 'Find Alternative' option. It's only "Recalculate" and TT decides for me how to recalculate.

    I had this same problem with Garmin years ago. That's how I started buying TT. :(

    What model do you have? A 550, maybe? If so, that comes with EasyMenu and many reduced user options. The 540 has the functionality I described.

    I have to assume it is 550. It says only XXL on the unit. The box has long gone. :(

    Read the information in this thread:

    about creating a custom menu that adds back additional functionality to EasyMenu models.

    Also, go here: device do i have

    to see what model you have according to TomTom.
