Navigation setting "Avoid highways"

Navigation setting "Avoid highways"

How can I choose my navigation setting to avoid highways?

rxlawdude | March 31, 2019

You can set it only to avoid ferries and toll roads.

I wish our map setting includes "Avoid highways "

If I could Avoid Highways I'd be the happiest boy in the world.

Damn it! Double tap!

If enough people requesting to have additional setting "Avoid freeway" , I think Tesla will do something about it, right?

I take it you are coming from a Prius. That was one of the nav options on the Prius.

I personally would be happy with an avoid the Merritt in CT option. 95 has SC's on it, the Merritt, only one at the beginning.

Your guessing is correct but I don't like using their map. I used to use my phone map when driving my Pruis plug-in or my Lexus GS. I still have my 2012 Prius plug-in and Lexus. I use Prius for within 10 miles round trip but I use my model 3 for longer 10 miles round trip. Tesla 3 is a tech car but not a luxury car. I enjoy driving it more than any other car I have.

Prius's are great cars. If I was still driving an ICE, it would be a Prius. Had an '02 and an '05. Way ahead of their time when they came out.

I suspect that Tesla's strategy for supercharger placement has targeted spots near highways, for obvious reasons. A setting in your navigation to avoid highways might prove problematic on road trips for charge location planning. However, I would also welcome that option - when I know the area, I sometimes make Navigation recalculate when I don't get on the highway...

Would love that option! I love a scenic backroads drive. We can always figure out when to shoot back towards the highway if we need a charge along the way.

Without setting of "Avoiid highways", I do mind it tries to take me back to highways when I try using the streets route because I know the highways traffic will be congested.

What is a Highway? Are you talking Interstates? State Highway? County Highway?

csjude | April 1, 2019

I second this.. can't believe they don't have this option!!

mikeng6274 | April 1, 2019

Highways is the same as freeway or expressway or major road

smyszko | April 1, 2019

I'd like to see this option too. The BMW I owned previously had it and I found it useful around cities for short trips where I don't want to get on the freeway.

I agree, sometimes I need to save energy route, but Tesla only loves to save you time! A no highway option would be nice

Carl Thompson | April 2, 2019

Even better would be an option to avoid _specific_ roads or freeways.

paratescon | April 20, 2019

Yes I also want this setting especially it is google maps.

waratuman | April 29, 2019

Yes, would also love this option. Otherwise I'm navigating with my phone on google maps :(
