Pink road syndrome is ruining my sat nav, its obviously a flaw in the system, I deliver in an artic to towns and cities but the device is trying to redirect me for no other reason than these stupid pink roads, please please tell me how to switch this function off as its making the Tomtom useless in certain areas.

    Its people who have decided a road is unsuitable for hgv's and reported such to TomTom who then update map as a no entry.
    The result is a £350 sat nav thats utterly useless in certain towns and cities!
