Good morning Otis. My name is*****'m sorry that you're having this problem. I will do my best to help.

This could be the result of a navigational setting on the device. A simple adjustment may resolve the issue.

If the device's route preference or calculation mode is set to Shorter Distance, this may cause the device to guide you off of a highway in order to navigate a more direct route. Setting the route preference to Faster Time may also make a difference in how the device calculates a route. Another setting that can be adjusted on the device is the avoidances. If highways or motorways are checked, then the device will avoid them when calculating a route. Your device may also factor in traffic conditions and road construction.

To check your device's navigation settings:

  1. Touch Tools
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch Navigation
  4. Touch Route Preference
  5. Check settings for each option (
  6. Touch OK
