Garmin nuvi 2360LT

Garmin will have to have seriously improved the routing choices for me to buy another. My 1690 is totally untrustworthy in it's choices on routes I know, so I don't use it at all on those I don't. It now functions as a very large bluetooth hands free device. The Live Traffic is it's only redeeming feature.
I have the same issues with the 2360LT. It mess up all route plans. If I want to go from the midlands to Dover with toll charge avoidance and fastest route options, it plans the route through the middle of London. It plan through village roads when the 70mph carriage way is just 100 meters away... Many times it send me out to the sliproad and then on the other side back to the same main road. No advanced planning, no re-planning or alternative route options. It cannot really plan international routes, it just say the journey is too long (from Innsbruck to Bologna? that's a joke). Many times it plans through small, slow roads when higher level, faster roads are available close to that it used. It's brand new but don't know the 3-4 years old changes, false speed limits everywhere in Europe. That's a total rubbish, my nearly 10 years old Tom-tom works better. I will never buy any other Garmin product. Ohhh, and as LT model it comes with lifetime traffic info and traffic avoidance option... but it doesn't even know the days old road closures, not the actual traffic. The best fuel efficiency option originally wanted to be the longest journey option I think. I recommend to use only one avoidance option in garmin and its the garmin itself, stay away from its products...
