TomTom Go Refuses to Navigate to the Selected Route
Sometime in the past few updates parts of the routing engine seem to have been fundamentally broken. In Settings, Route Planning I have selected When a faster route is available "Don't ask me", Avoid motorways, and avoid Unpaved roads. After having configured the settings as referenced I will search for a location and then select Current Route, Find Alternative. If I do not like the default route and select one of the alternative routes the routing engine will fail to keep me on the alternative route. Based on the configured settings it should route me to the selected route under all circumstances unless there is a major deviation. In each case it seems to reselect the default route which I did not select and route me via that route instead. This creates situations where TomTom routes me through the middle of busy cities when I specifically selected an alternative route that went around those cities. I have used the TomTom app for many years under many different incarnations and have not experienced this problem in the past. This is my most common use case and one of the main reasons I have stuck with TomTom all these years.
