How does TomTom calculate distance to destination?

I asked my TomTom app to locate Bremen. It gave a distance of 315km to Bremen from my home location.
I asked TomTom to calculate the fastest route to Bremen. It gave 437km for the fastest route to Bremen.
I see this discrepancy every time I select a destination. What is the explanation?

    When you do a search, the distance is calculated in a "direct straight line" or as the "crow flies", when you then calculate the fastest route a different measurement is given as roads rarely go in straight lines between destinations ......... Bring back the Romans B)
