Hi all have recently upgraded my tomtom pro 5150 to a professional 6250 both truck sat navs, honestly say the older device was a lot better to use, it had an amazing feature where when you planned a route you could edit the route by clicking view route on a map zooming in on street names and if there was a certain street name you had to use you could click on it and it would say travel via this street, the new device the 6250 I cant even view a map of a planned route really struggling to see why tomtom have removed this feature.

    Thanks guys exactly what I wanted, have just been using it from the off ain't had time to muck about with it, as a supermarket truck driver I'm told to go down certain streets via risk assessments and to avoid other streets was finding it difficult not being able to zoom into a map, brilliant answers thanks again.

    Pinch zoom to the required location 'Long Tap' (Tap and hold for +1 second) on the Location --> A quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot icon --> Choose 'Add to Current Route'
    The device will calculate your route to inlude your new location

    Saving the Route
    'Quick Tap' anywhere on the Route --> A quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot icon --> Manage route --> Add to my Routes.... Edit the route name as required or simply Tap Add

    Note... (1) A 'Quick Tap' and 'Long Tap' of the screen gives different menu options
