    Why is it when i set a postcode destination the tomtom takes me in roundabout routes turns me off onto narrow country roads instead of a direct route. Im not impressed. Ive recently retired from trucking and if i used a truck satnav i always get the direct route so why cant this be made for cars

    Is your device currently configured for shortest, fastest, or ? Are any routing restrictions set?
    There are quite a number of user configurable items that will impact how the routing goes, several of which can create interesting but sub-optimal results.
    Sample of one to/from using coordinates would help so we could evaluate what you're seeing.
