If a map update contains additional data such as - in my case - a new one-way system. Will these new additions be recognised when I call up one of my Saved Routes?

    If you save a route and you encounter a one-way street you are following the new route, the GPS will recalculate to rejoin your saved route.

    I would think it depends on the file type of the saved routes i.e. ITN Routes or GPX Tracks....

    Using the Tomtom MyDrive Web Route planner....
    Here... https://mydrive.tomtom.com
    (1)... If you 'Save 'n' Sync' (GPX Track)... The device will follow the track like a Breadcrumb trail...
    The track is fixed, and the device will >> NOT << display the Stops or respond to Live Traffic... Also, a .GPX Track can be a little hit or miss for a complex journey
    I much prefer .ITN Routes, for me .GPX tracks for complex journeys are totally useless....
    I would suspect they would also be useless for most delivery drivers....

    (2).... The Route planned directly on the device is a .ITN Route the .ITN Route uses Stops... The Stops >> ARE << displayed on the screen when Navigating and the device will plan the route between the stops... An .ITN Route will respond to Live Traffic and any route deviations BUT an .ITN route will doggedly follow the stops in the order they were created, if you miss a stop, the device will continuously attempt to guide you to the missed stop... You have to cancel the problem stop on the device to avoid it....
    i.e... Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Current Route --> 'Skip Next Stop'....

    For more Info/tips using the MDW Route planner....
