Got my '02 Navi a couple of days ago and started to check out the various features. We live in SC and once or twice a year we go see family in the Northeast. To stay away from the heavy East Coast traffic between DC and NY we stay inland on I77, I81 etc. and turn East at Newburgh NY through CT. Of course our Nav system insists on sliding up the Coast on I95 with all its toll roads and big city traffic. I found out about the 'Exclude Road' feature, but that turns out to be real tedious because it seems that it re-calculates and only then can you adjust the route again etc. Am I missing something or am I expecting too much? I used a laptop based system before with Delorme 'Road warrior' software which used manually inserted 'check points' as a means to roughly lay out a preferred route in case you knew what you wanted to circumvent.
