- Aug 3, 2012I do use "Quickest" as default. One of the strangest routes it gave me was
from an island with no bridge to the mainland over a "bridge" that does not
exist. I was tempted to report to DOT that I could save them many millions
of dollars. There are limits to these things.

On thing that people do when planning and laying down a route is to have
the preferred route set to "Shortest" instead of "Quickest". When you do
that it will route you through the weirdest ways just to safe you maybe
a quarter of a mile.
Happened to me a couple of times till I caught on .
