I believe TTN has a facility that enables you to change or lower the speed settings for A roads. TT will then calculate the motorway as the best route and wherever possible keep you on it. Is this correct??

Can Navman's smartST do this??? I think not!
But if not, why not??

What a great feature this would be to enable more control over preferred routes. It is frustrating when I am sent down a narrow lane/unsurfaced road because it is the shortest/quickest but definitely not preferred.

I would certainly like to see this added to SmartSTv3 as well as an improved routing alogarithm.

It's very frustrating because although the new version seems to have got rid of the motorway junction problem in V1 it still has a habit of taking you off motorways and through cities which is neither shorter or quicker. I too hope that they include a "stay on motorway" where possible option.
