Can't Select FASTEST ROUTE! Go 6000

I cannot get my unit to show me the FASTEST ROUTE, even though I have my Route Planning set to "ALWAYS SHOW FASTEST ROUTE", it continues to show me the SHORTEST ROUTE!

I have updated Tom, turned it Off/On, and re-checked my settings, but it still does it.

Please can someone tell me how to change this?

    Try a drum reset on the unit by holding the power button about 20 seconds till you hear the drum sounds.

    In Route planning it doesn't say "ALWAYS SHOW FASTEST ROUTE"
    Option... (1) Says "When a faster route is available"
    I always choose "Ask me so I can choose"

    Option... (2) further down says "Always plan this type of route"
    I always choose "Fastest route"

    My Device always plans the "Fastest route" and if a faster route becomes available the device asks me if I want to take it... Yes/No

    If on the 2nd option you choose "Always take the fastest route " then the device would not ask if want to take the new faster route it would automatically recalculate and take the revised faster route
