    Good evening, I had my first trip with the Via52 today and reached my destinat tion spot on!
    On the return trip I did not like the route it gave me and deviated. It kept on showing me a U-turn and tried to get me on the original route again. On Google Maps it normally adjusts to the new route home.
    My second question is when I would like to travel via a specific town. How do I set that up?
    Thank you!

    Welcome to TomTomForums.

    Did you select fastest route in settings?
    Although it is not always right, it will try to get you to your destination on the fastest route.
    If you selected Avoid Motorway it will try to get you off there at every exit.
    I often use different then planned routes as we cannot program time of day prohibited turns. Once I get past the area where I know the better way I will let the device take over again.

    I do not have my VIA 62 any longer to test but I think you can program up to 3 additional waypoints.
    After you programmed a destination tap Menu > Current Route scan to the right and you should see Additional Stops. Tap it and enter the location.

    Keep asking questions
