When riding a route is there away to show an alternate route. Today while riding a route I ran into some road construction that GPS did not show and I could not find away to have it choose an alternate route.

    Hi

    [h2]Avoiding a blocked road[/h2]If there is a blocked road on your route you can change your route to avoid it.
    1. In the guidance view, select the current location symbol or the speed panel.
    2. Tip: The speed panel is only shown when you have started driving on your route.
    3. Select Avoid Blocked Road.
    4. A new route is found that avoids the blocked road. You may get shown up to two alternatives depending on the road network between you and your destination.
    5. The new route is shown on the map view with the difference in travel time in a balloon.
    6. Note: It may not be possible to find an alternative route around the blocked road if none exists.
    7. Select the new route by selecting the time balloon.
    8. Guidance to your destination resumes avoiding the blocked road. As soon as you start driving, the guidance view is shown automatically.

    Thanks for getting me an answer so quickly. I am a new user to the 550, been using Garmin for 20 years, and simply love the Rider 550.
