ZUMO 450 problem
I have a Zumo 450 which has been taking me off road ( dirt) or on gravel roads quite frequently. I ride a lot of back roads in N. Ga and try not to hit the major roads but on almost every trip I end up 5 miles down a road and it turns to gravel (and GPS indicating many miles to the next turn). There does not seem to be a setting which would eliminate this......or is there? I had 08 maps and now the 2010 maps and no improvement. I also don't see any difference in how the gravel/dirt roads look on the mapping software.
This past Sunday a nicely paved asphalt road ended in loose gravel on a sharp left hand turn. Posted speed limit 55 MPH. No signs on the road. No warning on GPS.
Avoidances of unpaved road checked.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
