    Hi @ianlench

    What map version do you have on the unit. I think the avoiding Dartford Crossing was solved with the latest map update v1065..

    Hi Doug
    My version is 1065.10714 what’s funny is the my drive app on my phone does send me through the dart Ford crossing ta just my brand new Tomtom ( less than 2 weeks old) won’t do it

    Hi
    @ianlench
    Welcome to the site....
    Just a thought....
    Check... Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Route Planning
    Scroll down to... 'When a faster route is available'... Have you set it to 'Always take the fastest route'
    I use... Ask me so I can choose... At least I know when the device thinks there's a faster route available, otherwise I would not be aware of the Route Change (The Original Route may have included a Toll Road)

    Stay Safe... ATB YFM
