Routing is awful
on 10 December 2013
After 6 years owning a TomTom I decided to purchase the Nuvi 52LM as, according to many reviews, it was a superior device to the comparable TomTom. I have used it a couple of time and I have to say the routing is dire and no amount of fiddling with the settings or trying to contact Garmin has helped. Trying to get from Bournemouth to Cheltenham (with fastest route selected) resulted in a journey across country up to Salisbury and across Salisbury plain (a tractor would have been more appropriate) when the M27 | M3 | A34 route is clearly the quickest. (Note there is no option to "prefer motorways" as on TomTom).
If I could think of a reason to return this item as faulty then I would and I'd buy another TomTom.
