DIFFERENT ROUTE

 

This is new to me and never happened to me before.

Last week I was going for 3 days training in Cleveland.
I enter the destination and it show on my gps that was 28 miles away.

On the way to go it give me one direction to follow, But on the way back it give me a different route to come back Home.

3 times I went and 3 times it give me the same direction.

Does anyone know why My Gps did that?? and they is a way to make the GPS make me coming back the same way I went?

Different Route

I had the same thing happen to me a while back, it was like my Garmin 2360 got confused on which route to follow.

Can Be Frustrating!

My Nuvi would do that to me a lot and I never did understand it.....

Another nav program that I'm using these days will actually show 3 alternative routes for me to choose from whenever I hit the go button. I really like that option because often times I will have local knowledge about a particular route (i.e. construction, etc) that the nav program isn't aware of and I can select the one route out of the three that are presented to me that I think will be best.

Another side benefit to the multiple route option is that it will show the distance and ETA for each route which is very handy in helping to figure out if some of my well used "short-cuts" really are shorter or not.

My built in GM Nav unit also gives me 3 different route options and shows the time and distance difference and the breakdown of road types for each route. It is a very nice option to be able to make an informed decision on what would be the best route for you. I really like the feature and I know that built in nav units get bashed on here but they have some added features other than the convenience of being built in. I really like that the upcoming turn info showing the name of the street, distance to the turn and turn direction are all displayed in the heads up display on the windshield a half mile in town and 2 miles ahead on the freeway.

If one of the options has a toll road it allows you to then make a determination if the amount of time, distance and fuel saved would make it worth paying the toll.

That nav program that you are using, what is it's name? Is it for Android. I will keep my Garmin but some of the Android Apps are fun to play around with.

Nuvi 3790 will do that

My Nuvi 3790 will do that, and I suspect that other newer Nuvi models will do the same. On the 3790, it's called " calculation mode - prompted". The feature is set through Tools - Settings - System - Navigation - Automobile - nuRoute - Calculation Mode - Prompted.

Once set, every time you ask the Nuvi to calculate a route it will display one for 'faster time', one for shortest distance, and one for 'less fuel'. You can scroll to each route and see it displayed on the map screen. Simply select GO on the map displaying the route you want.
