Hi, I noticed the other day that on my GPS I have 4 options when calculating routes, Fastest,Shortest,Off-road,Custom, I tried custom and it took me a different way than the fast or short, I didn't put any roads in, it routed by itself, how is Custom different from the other 2? I don't have the Custom option from Mapsource on my computer.

There should be 3 sliders somewhere below custom with;
Major, medium and minor roads and you position them to bias the routing.

If you go into the main menu and look under the routing tab in the system page you should find slider preference settings for major, medium, and minor roads for your custom routes. Set the sliders and then every time you calculate a route using "Custom" is will use those setting.

Actually there is a similar function in Map Source too. It varies a little between versions but in the preference menu under the routing tab there is a slider/selection for the type of road you want to route on along with some avoid buttons.
