Avoiding interstates not working.

Post by pidjones » Sun Oct 06, 2019 1:00 pm

I have Basecamp (Win10) with motorcycle profile set to avoid interstates. Doesn't mater if set for fastest or shortest routes, it jumps to the superslabs and I have to include dozens of shaping points to keep it off. What gives? AmI going to have to individually select every interstate highway in the area (both directions to include the return trip) to accomplish this? I seem to be going backwards in ease of use from MapSource and StreetPilot 2730 to Basecamp and Zumo 396. If not fir the brighter screen and map memory U would pull the old StreetPilot back out (which, BTW came with a car kit included).

Try a different profile. If it's still happening which map are you using?

I found that using the motorcycling profile really screws things up as far as avoidances go. I switched to driving on both the device and Base Camp and the problems went away.

I later went back and "converted" re-used routes from motorcycling to driving in Base Camp and was amazed at the differences in route selection made.

Similar experience, after being directed to French peage a couple of times earlier in the year I switched from motorcycling to driving in BC and on the Zumo for my trip in September and had no problems.
