Why does tomtom go android estimates the distance between Bristol and Barmouth North Wales is 105 miles when in fact it is 152 miles maybe there's a short cut.

    Hi @Terryd1

    Is it showing 105 miles against Barmouth when it is displayed in search then that is the Straight Line distance from where you are to Barmouth. It then shows 157 miles when it creates the route as that is the length of the drive. Ie the physical distance between Penzance and Lands End is significantly shorter than how far it is by road.
