WISH LIST: Avoid Interstate Highway if gain will be less than 2 minutes

It would be great on the Fastest Route routing to be able to specify a, say, a 2 minute leeway, to avoid an Interstate Highway. On many of my routes, I find that TomTom wants me to hop on the interstate for one exit. If I ignore it and stay on the parallel regular road I find that my "penalty" is often just a minute or two. Often the penalty is nothing.

I would rather avoid the ramps and merging on and off a busy highway if the gain is going to be negligible.

So I would like to have an "Avoid Interstate Highway if gain will be less than x minutes" feature.

    @JJPrats: your recommendation for allowing the operator of the GPS devise to set a delay threshold for traffic is excellent. As you indicated some times there is no benefit to taking the alternate route.

    If you don't under settings use automatic fastest route, when their is a faster route, it will show tou a choice of different turns or routes to take with the diffeerent times fo each
