'Winding Roads' routing does not observe the global 'avoid unpaved roads' setting option.

Instead, it tends to produce a warning that the route does include unpaved roads - forcing me to
a) notice the warning
b) manually re-apply that setting, for the active route.

I have not have this issue with other routing types (especially 'Fastest" which I use most commonly)

app ver: 2.4.1 on iphone
navigation sdk: R20.1

    Hi
    @Justin70
    Welcome to the site....
    Avoid Unpaved roads on every route Ignored....
    I recall this as being a compromise to a 'No Route Possible' error....

    When the Thrill route option was introduced, in certain circumstances where a user had set 'Avoid on every route + 'Unpaved roads', the device reported 'No Route possible'... When in fact there was a route possible but using 'Unpaved roads'

    ON the PND's If you have 'Avoid on every route + Unpaved roads' (or one or more of the other 3 options) set, and you want to pre-check a route....
    After the device has calculated the route Tap the 4Dot (....) --> Tap Current Route... If the Route is OK the 'Avoid Toll and More' Icon will be greyed out
    If the 'Avoid Toll and More' Icon is highlighted Tap on the 'Avoid Toll and More' Icon
    The option/s causing the problem/s will be highlighted

    Stay Safe... ATB YFM
