hi, I'm not a highway driver. I have someone google easiest route for me, not involving highway. I've tried doing it on my VIA 1515M, but it is not giving me route I want to use. Are there settings I can change to get route I want?...Thanks

In the "Setting menu" (UK) you can tell the Route planner to Avoid Motorways
There Must be a US equivalent avoid Free-way ???

yes, I chose that, but it's not giving me same instructions as google map does, only gives one choice. Thanks for responding.
