Different routes

Post by haug37 »


Have 2 Garmin Zumo XT (wife and me) and 1 (Garmin) BMW Navigator 6
When I ask them to put a route from home to an address, I get 3 different routes ??
All 3 GPS are set up exactly the same in the settings.

How could it be, i expect to see same route on all 3 ? :roll:

You'll be lucky if they did. Too many variables.

Even though you think they are the same they won't be. For a start you have different models, probably using different routing algorithms. Then Garmin devices learn your driving style, so each one is likely to have different speeds associated with different road types. You may also have different maps? I could go on but I'll stop just with those.
