    Ours will give you the "direct" route. Not the fastest route. So usually even if it is faster to go 4 miles over to I-## it will keep you going back roads through small towns. Though this morning buddy of mine said it was going 23 miles farther on his route in CA on 99. Hammer was giving 100 miles. "Jill" was giving 123 miles. Again off of 99 and onto side roads. I've not once used it since I got in my own truck. It is POS.

    My company says its navigo. My route is supposed to be 1200 miles, it routed me 1800 miles, with no major interstates in my route. Yeah, navigo needs to get back on its meds.

    I'd check the route setting preferences on those units. Sounds like they might be set to exclude certain types of roads etc... I finally figured that out after wondering WTF their routing was coming from.
