  • Why does MapMonkey hate motorways?

    I had a job interview, and even thought he CarPC isn't in yet, I decided to invest in a Car PSU for my lappy.

    I had to travel from Warrington, to the far side of Stockport.
    I didn't know the local area on the other side of Stockport, but I did know it was riddled with cameras.

    So I decided to trust Mapmonkey. It sent me all round the lanes arround Altrincham before eventually letting me do a mile on the motorway before taking me off again.

    On the way back I followed the route until it got me onto the M56. But it wanted to take me off again almost straight away at the next junction. Knowing I was 40 minutes away if I stayed on, or over an hour if I followed the route, I ignored it, it tried to re-route me back onto B roads at every minor junction.

    What gives? I tried both quickest and shortest routes. neither seemed to help.

    That's weird
    I use MM regularly and I can't say I've had that problem. If I set "quickest route" and a motorway is the obvious favorite, it has no hesitation in using it
