Help!
New member requires assistance.
I am driving from west of Ireland to south
Birmingham next week and I cannot get satnav
To use M6 Toll.
I can avoid M5, M6 but it won’t use M6 Toll.
Is there any way to do it.
Thanks.

Ray, in the sat nav settings you should be able to deselect "Avoid Toll Roads"?

Already done and it sends me via 3 tolls in
Ireland.
I want to use M6 Toll in UK.
I can’t get the satnav to send me that way.
There doesn’t appear to be a “via” I can use.

Ray, I think you can put in an itinerary which allows you to put in your own route. Your settings may be set to avoid toll roads which could be why it won't route you on the M6 Toll?

Thanks David,
You pointed me in the right direction!
I set up a tour with the M6 Southbound Toll
Plaza as a tour point and it worked.

It is a clumsy workaround though - much simpler if you could just specify a waypoint for your route. Something for the next update perhaps (Can’t find the smiley for wild optimism!)

All Sat navs should be taken with a pinch of salt including Kia, if you are struggling with Sat nav directions there are always the great big nationwide side of the road signs. All you have to do is read them and follow the way they have sent you, no updates required.

I use the M6 Toll frequently but the Sat Nav only decides to use it when there is major congestion on the M6.

On your journey the Sat Nav will possibly re divert to go via the Toll or you just stay in the right and lanes at the junction and it will re route once you have 'missed' your turn off for the M6.
