I think it's unrealistic to expect to maintain an average of 85 mph on a motorway. Similarly with the other road types.

I had mine set to similar to you, but effectively all it did was make TT3 prefer motorways (to the extent that if you put an avoid in on a big chunk of the M25 it would just route you off at the start of the avoid and back on at the end of it).

I went back to the defaults and it seems a lot better.

With the default's I found it had too much of a preference for motorways over dual carriage ways, often wanting to take me a much longer route to use a motorway rather than what is a very fast dual carriage way. Raising the speeds for International and Major roads solved this.

Does anyone know what TomTom mean by International Road vs Major Road? Is International a dual carriage way?
