Hi, if I wish for example, to go to Ellesmere Port and TomTOm gives me just one route option which does not pass through Whitby, how do I ask for directions to drive via Whitby?

With AA route finder I have the option to drive via Whitby but don't see a way to do that with TomTom. I can't programme it in as a stop on the route as the only route offered does not go via Whitby.

I guess there must be a way.

Thanks.

Cheers

    Hi

    If you want to drive through (Whitby) you need to add a stopover by tapping on the town name or plan the route via Mydrive.

    Hi @Tafia

    If you create a route on the device from A to B and it is displayed you can either use the Search facility or Press on the screen where you want to go. You get a menu next to this additional place and if you Tap the 3 vertical Dots next to Drive you can Select Add to Route.
