On a route across that there London, if I select "avoid toll roads" will it steer me around the congestion charged zone?
Using a street pilot 320 with City Navigator Europe NT 2009

TIA
Regards Geoff

My garminxt mobile does - whenever I enter or leave the congestion zone it even alerts me that I'm entering toll zone. However, don't just rely on the device, the boundaries are well marked with signs on the road, on the pavement and often the rank of 100s of cameras will give it away :p

Amicus - I don't think so. Not sure about the newest map, but the 2008 one didn't warn.
You can always download Congestion Zone POIs, but chris_ah1 said - it's well marked

Thanks guys, think I'd sooner not get close enough to see the warnings Smile

Guess I'll try and sort an avoidance area in Mapsource.

I was driving yesterday through the congestion zone. There was no warnings nuvi 255W with 2009 map update), like speed alerts, just icons on the map, but to be honest i'm not sure if I uploaded them or they come with the map.
