Highlighted Route and vocal instructions

Post by Grizzly »

I came across a problem today. While riding home on the motorway, I was instructed to exit at junction 18, following the highlighted route, but I decided to carry on to junction 17, and that is where the problem arose. My Zumo did not recalculate the fastest route home and gave no vocal instructions on how to get there. Had I been in an area I did not know, I could have been driving around in circles. Is my device faulty or is this a software glitch, or have it on the wrong setting?

Don't know about yours but some units allow for turning off automatic recalculation.

As Russ suggested, you probably have auto recalculate turned off.

Was this just a 'Get me home' route entered into the satnav as you set off, or was it a planned route created in some mapping software ?

The satnav will display a white arrow on the magenta line ahead when it is issuing directions. If you get the white arrow, but no sound, you might have hit the mute button, turned the volume down or have some other issue with sound.

Make sure automatic recalculation is turned on. it will be in the Settings, navigation section. Possibly called 'Off Route Calculation' Set it to automatic. Also allow U turns.

Thanks guys, "Off Route Calculation" was turned off. Only my third time using Garmin, so still a learning process. I will ride the same route today and see how I get on. Thank you.

The other setting is to set navigation to faster time or shorter distance. Faster time is often more predictable, but both can surprise.

Ignore instructions you don't fancy. It will find a new way

Hi guys, I rode the same this morning and went off the highlighted route, same as yesterday, and all good now, that I turned "Off Route Calculation" to automatic.
Thanks again.
