To be honest if it's a routing error, (and i know the type you mean, where it takes you off a perfectly good main road and routes you around the backs of houses and back onto the main road a mile or 2 later) all you can do is tell Garmin.

Of course you can also do the other thing i did which was dump the Garmin and switch to TomTom.
