Force to use majors roads

The Go app could be massively improved in my experience by having the option to "stay on major routes" that will prevent taking 'shortcut' routes to say cut off a corner between 2 major (A roads in the UK). Have I missed something in the routing options or does this not exist? I'm sure it would be a useful addition for many users.

    Hi @RedSpecial62 , developers ask for specific example of route where this can be reproduced. It will greatly help us.

    In the menu > Settings > Routing > Preferred route type, what type have you selected?

    I have had the same experience. Route from Greoux-les-Bains to Manosque E. Leclerc (supermarket) in France. Preferred route: fast.
    TT/AA directed me to Chemin des Embarrades. Which is a very narrow road with big holes in it. Ending in a steep climb with bad situation to turn back on the main road.

    MD also proposes for me first route that goes through Chemin des Embarrades:
