PURPLE Alternative Route Icon in Route Bar

This past weekend I was using my TomTom GO to drive from Paris to Cologne. I am familiar with the green alternative route icon in the route bar showing a faster alternative route.

On this particular trip, at one point a purple/magenta blob showed up, with the double-arrow symbol and then a +54. I couldn’t find anything in the manual or online on what this could be. I couldn’t imagine that the GPS is giving me an alternative route that would add almost an hour to my drive time.

Does anyone know what that purple icon means?
