    I just have a question I can't figure out... why does my TomTom take me on a different route on the way to work than it does on the way home from work?

    The start and end places are the same, just going different directions...


    My actual address and workplace have not been used, but this is an example....

    Way to work is like this:
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=....777908,-90.704155&spn=0.060354,0.112438&z=13

    Way home from work is like this:
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=...-90.704155&sspn=0.06035,0.112438&ie=UTF8&z=13

    They seem to take about the same amount of time... I'm just wondering why it doesn't go the same way both ways?

    I had a simular situation when traveling to Atlanta. Tom Tom took me I-85 from home in NC to address in Atlanta but I-20 from the Atlanta address back home. Not sure why.

    I have recently looked into a similar situation myself. What I found was that the map had incorrectly marked a small section of one of the travelled roads as one way. This made access to an Interstate onramp almost impossible and the next fastest route was chosen. This resulted in a different route being used in one direction. Using Mapshare I was able to correct this problem.
