Avoid closed roads?
Today Louise (my satnav) was being very difficult.
I'd set to go to Fussen, just to see the lie of the route and pick up a town on the route that was within driving distance. She said there was a closed road and did I want to avoid it? Pretty stupid question I thought but I said Yes, avoid. When I selected a place within driving distance she didn't mention the closed road so I thought it was beyond that point.
But no, as I'm driving along I get a long-winded message to the effect there's an update, and a closed road and she's going to redo the route. No question. But the buttons were No, Info and Yes.
I pressed yes and she rejigged. But she kept doing that, maybe 7 or 8 times.
Firstly I don't think there should be a long-winded message, requiring input, when you're driving.
Secondly, I can't think of any situation where you wouldn't want to avoid a closed road. Why is there not a setting for 'always avoid closed roads', as they have for motorways?
Has anyone else experienced the same? Any solution?
