    It means that you have IQ routing and it picked a route it feels is the fastest for weekdays.


    See the first screen shot you provided? See at the bottom left of the status bar there are 3 arrows (greyed out) pointing straight ahead and 1 active arrow pointing to turn right? That's ALG (Advanced Lane guidance).

    [/QUOTE]
    The Advanced Lane guidance kicks in on various roads where the information is imbedded in the map (we in Canada don't have ANY roads showing ALG in the 8.10 map :mad: ). So, if you see a screen such as you provided, the exact combination of arrows straight ahead and arrows directing you to turn will vary depending upon the road your on at any given time that ALG kicks in.
