Garmin not calculating best route, can I modify?
Hi, I have a nuvi 1450 and 51lm, both current on maps. For many years, they take me on a confusing route to my destination in Madison. All other online maps show the fastest, most direct route, but Garmin takes me through the city by the university. I don’t have unlimited data on my phone, so I really need the garmin. What I’ve been doing is to put a waypoint at an intersection on the highway, but it doesn’t make for a smooth route - wants me to turn around the intersection because of split lanes. Typically I need to change the destination when I’m near, either after pulling over or on-the-fly. Is there any way to get the garmin to plot the fast route that’s not through the city? I’ve tried recalculating for speed and distance with no luck. Apple and google maps both calculate correctly - taking the highway and one exit, rather than half a dozen city streets. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. (I can provide the address if that is helpful)
