Question Rand McNally - Road Avoid?

I have been playing with the demo as well. I have not found a way to mark a specific road segment to avoid. Is that possible? I specifically want to avoid the George Washington Bridge through NYC on every trip. Is there an option in RV Wizard to do that?

Any one here import to Rand McNally? Does the imported routing recalculate if you go off route? Or does it take you back to the previous route even if that means back tracking?

Thanks in advance,

Bob

on the rm 7720 you will have to set the recalculate to manual for it not to automatically recalculate. Don't know about other models.

Thanks for the reply. Just so I understand, if I don't set to manual and I am following a route imported from RVTW and go off route, will it recalculate to my original destination or back to the imported route?

Any input on setting a road segment to avoid in RVTW?

I believe to original destination. To get back on the original route you would have to zoom out and find your way back to the original.

Cool

I do import RV Trip Wizard route to Rand McNally.. If I deviate from the intended route, RM will recalculate to either get me back on the intended route, eventually. This functions no different than if I input the route on RM manually.

I have owned navigation systems that allowed the exclusion of parts of cities to prevent navigation through there. I believe that was a Garmin navigation system, but it was a long time ago. I am not familiar with that option on RM, but have not looked for that specifically.

Since RVTW is a "planning" tool and not a navigation system, I use RVTW to plan the route and use waypoint to prevent going through various parts of a city or to completely change the route RM might otherwise take me.

With the RM system if you have set any waypoints to force a specific route it will always route to that waypoint. If you want to deviate from the waypoint you need to go to the RM menu and select skip waypoint. I did forget this early on and kept going in circles! Seems pretty obvious now but not at the time.

Also, remember that the RM, as well as most other GPS units, does it's own routing. The RVTW only exports the starting, set stops, waypoints, and the ending point. Everything between these points is calculated by the GPS.

As to setting a permanent avoid for a section or area my RM has this but I have not been able to get it to work. Tried everything I could think of but no success. Some how I did seem to set an avoid on a road I do use often and can not find where or how to clear it. RVTW does not have this as nearly as I can find.
