Paul, don't forget you can change your route options to either faster time
or shorter distance.  Also, make sure your "avoidances" aren't set to make
the route less sensible... e.g. Avoid Highways, etc.

I'm happy with any GPS if I can preload my planned route.  The only serious
gripe I have with the Zumo 450 is that if you ask it to take you to an
address, it doesn't always pick the most sensible route.  Also, I need to
update the map data, as I sometimes find myself riding or driving in what
is, literally, uncharted territory!  I don't have any Bluetooth devices so I
couldn't justify the extra $$$ for the Zumo 550.
