IS THERE ANY WHERE IN THE SETTINGS I CAN CHANGE ROUTE, I'VE LOOKED ON EVERY ITEM AND CAN NOT FIND IT, IF THERE IS A SUCH THING, AS IF I'M GOING SOME WHERE I KNOW AND I PUT THE SAT NAV ON IT WOULD TAKE ME THE LONGEST ROUTE WHERE IS MY ROUTE IS THE SHORTEST.

    Look at pages 16 - 18 of the manual http://download.tomtom.com/open/manuals/non-LIVE/refman/TomTom-EU-non-LIVE-RG-en-gb.pdf
    To take the alternative route, tap the balloon at the top of the screen. If you don't want to follow the alternative route, keep driving to continue to receive instructions for your original route.
    Tip: The alternative route disappears when it is no longer faster than your original route or it is too late for you to choose it.
    To change how you are asked about alternative routes, tap Settings and then Route planning. Tap Next until you reach Replanning settings.
    Selecting a route type
    Every time you plan a route, you can choose to be asked about the type of route you want to plan.
    To do this, tap Settings followed by Route planning, then Route types. Tap Ask me every time I plan.
    If you are using a TomTom camper and caravan product, to choose the type of route you have to set your vehicle type to Car. Tap Settings followed by Vehicle and routes, then Vehicle and route types. Select Car as your vehicle type, then tap Ask me every time I plan.

    Note:You can only choose to be asked about the type of route when you select a car as your vehicle.
    The types of route you can choose from are as follows:
     Fastest route - the route which takes the least time.
     Eco route - the most fuel-efficient route for your journey.
     Shortest route - the shortest distance between the locations you set. This may not be the quickest route, especially if the shortest route is through a town or city.
     Walking route - a route designed for making the journey on foot.
     Bicycle route - a route designed for making the journey on a bicycle.
     Limited speed - a route based on a maximum speed. When you choose this type of route, you enter a maximum speed. The route and estimated time of arrival are then planned based on the speed that you entered.
