Route selection by TomTom

I frequently plan a route to a smaller place in the countryside. Very often TomTom creates a route that brings me off the main road early and guides me to my destination via narrow, poorly lit roads along ditches while a perfectly well equipped road is only a few hundred meters away.
Is there a possibilty to make a preference to use main roads as much as possible? I only see shortes route, fastest route etc.

    Love this included to this is the reason I use Google navigation over Tom Tom, desperately needs avoid Country and c roads to many times taken me down rediculusly narrow lanes when there's better alternative options.

    TomTom have known about this problem for years and say they don't know how to stop it happening. Pathetic really; surely all it needs is an option to avoid unclassified roads or conversely, to only choose A/B roads and motorways?
