    Lightbulb CF Req: 'Avoid All Path's'

    G'day David,

    Just downloaded 4.3 and testing it out.

    One thing that I think would be a great feature is to be able to ignore all 'paths'.

    We here in Australia, well in Canberra at least, have a lot of paths that show up on the Destinator maps that you can't actually drive on. Sometimes due to it being a dirt road, sometimes because it's closed off to cars (walking trails). But the maps still try and take you on it to get to your destination.

    I've tried entering all the paths in to the 'avoid roads' settings but some just won't let me (one particular one in Red Hill (ACT) especially).

    Now, is there any way to set it up so it ignores all streets that are named 'Path' so it forces it to use a different route ?

    Also (this will be impossible I think) some roads we have here are truely just small dirt roads, not something you'd take your family on for a nice drive to the coast... lol but are still named. Are the roads in the Destinator maps ranked on a scale for size so you could ignore all roads that are dirt ?

    I noticed that the main highways are yellow while the streets are white, just not sure if the maps have enough detail about the roads though.

    Thanks, and great work.

    You just have the option of quickest route or shortest route... As you are routing you can click the eye icon and bring up the turn by turn list... Then highlight a road and hit the circle with a line in it, it will avoid the road and re-route you a different way without using that road...

    Thanks
