TomTom Via 1525M --> Can I change Toll Road related behavior?

We had an older TomTom that, when you'd input a destination address, would pop up a warning: "Includes toll roads -- OK?" and would wait for you to either hit OK or decline to use toll roads, in which case it would recalculate a route that doesn't use them.

The 1525M very briefly pops up an alert without an OK button telling us the route includes toll roads. After about 3 seconds the warning disappears and the TomTom assumes toll roads are just fine and dandy with us. There's a "Change" button embedded in the warning, and clicking on that brings up a dialog to avoid certain particulars on the route, one of which is toll roads (you can also avoid interstate highways and various other things). One has to change the setting on Toll Roads there (it's a slider) to say "no toll roads on this route" and then click a Save or OK (or some such) button at the bottom to implement that change.

a) Is there any way to make it behave more like the older TomTom and require an affirmative OK from the driver before making use of toll roads?

b) Alternatively, is there a global setting to make it *always* assume it should avoid toll roads, and a non-complicated way to override that when we're resigned to making use of tolls on the route?

    Hi
    @AHunter3
    'Avoid on every route'
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Route planning...Scroll down to 'Avoid on every route'....
    Select Toll roads....

    Then....
    To use a Toll Road on a route-by-route basis....
    Plan your route....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Current route --> Avoid Road Types...
    Deselect Toll roads --> Tap OK
    The Route will recalculate to include Toll Roads....
    __________________________
    End
    __________________________

    After a previous NavKit update the NAV4 & the later Nav4 Wi-Fi Connected devices....
    All the Avoids like Motorways etc were moved to a new menu 'Avoid Road Types'....

    Now you... Plan & Calculate your Route -->
    Tap 4Dot (....) Menu --> 'Current Route' --> 'Avoid Road Types' --> Select... 'Avoid Motorways'
    I think the idea is now they have added Tunnels & Country Borders to the list, is to have all the 'Avoids' listed in one Menu....

    To Always 'Avoid' Motorways etc....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Route Planning
    Scroll all the way down to sub menu 'Route planning'
    Turn off 'Motorways'

    To Avoid' Motorways etc... On a Route-by-Route basis....
    Plan & Calculate your Route -->
    Tap 4Dot (....) Menu --> 'Current Route' --> 'Avoid Road Types' --> Select... 'Avoid Motorways'
