    Route Menu > More Options... > Segments Tab > Prefered (sp?) Road Type...

    Turn the toll road slider all the way down

    Unfortunately, if you are looking for a more permanent way to turn off toll roads within S&T 05, there isn't any. The above procedure needs to be performed every time you plan a new trip.

    Setup the preferred roads the way you want them, then save it as a map file.
    Modify your shortcut to load that file every time you launch S&T and your route preferences will be the way you want.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Unfortunately "Preferred Road Types" will be grayed out, and you will have no access to it, unless you plot a route. As far as I know there is no way to save "Preferred Road Types" settings for future use.

    But many other settings are savable the way you are suggesting.

    My bad...
    I forgot a crucial step...
    Make a starting point... For example, I have a file that loads with my home as the starting point....

    Unfortunately that is still a no go :-( There would have to be a minimum of two addresses entered in Route Planner for the "Preferred Road Types" settings to be accessible. Then you could indeed change & save those settings, but it would be still useless since those settings would reset to their default position every time you plot a new route.

    But perhaps this could be a useful feature improvement worth adding to a wish list ;-)

    What about home -> home, using the same address?

    Slimline, I just tried it, and it does in fact appear to work ;-) I actually noticed that when I later change my route to something that doesn't include the Home-to-Home part, the "Preferred Road Types" settings do retain my previously set preferences. I will still try it a few more times later when I find some time for this, because I recall the settings used to go back to their default "middle" whenever you plotted a new route. Perhaps S&T 05 improved this a bit over previous versions ;-)
