    Hi @barbieribarbara
    Welcome to the community! Once you have entered the start point and the destination of your travel (in MyDrive web)you should be able to select the type of road depending on the selected vehicle. See the image below:


    Thanks, Vikram

    Welcome to the site....
    Do you mean off-road use ???
    The Tomtom devices are not really designed for off-road use....
    If road/lane/track is not displayed on the Tomtom maps it will usually only guide to the nearest road access point....

    Example inputting coordinates using GPS format, for example, If you enter N 52 23.488 W 2 12.501 it's a field in Worcestershire UK
    In the text, the New GO range will display the coordinate location and underneath, offer the nearest road location as a destination, in this case, an (Unnamed location) Hurcott UK


    (1)... Tapping the Pennant Icon opens the "(Unnamed location) Hurcott UK" Tap the blue "Drive Steering Wheel" icon to drive there
    Tap the 3Dot Quick menu for more options....
    (2)... Tapping the Globe coordinate Icon only zooms the map into the Globe Icon (Tapping the Globe Icon on the Map does nothing)... Pinch zoom the map down until the Pennant Icon is in view....

    If you Tap the dual function Icon (3Lines & 2Circles....

    You can toggle between a Map and List view or tap the Keyboard Icon to return to the Coordinates' menu screen
    If you pinch-zoom the map screen, it will show the coordinate location on the Map
    The GO will give you the coordinate location and will show it on the map, but can only plan a route to the nearest road access point
