Stock Garmin GPS - Improving routing

I've taken to using a side loaded copy of waze in place of my factory GPS, however, It can be inconvenient due to it's requirement for a data connection.

The cause of this is the strange routing on my stock GPS:- It takes extremely over-direct routes; E.G. Multiple turns down side roads, generally not preferring motorways / high speed roads; It often tries to take me off at every motorway exit to go across the roundabout and back onto the motorway

I get the feeling this is something to do with the routing settings; Has anyone got any suggestions, other than install Sygic?

Quite a few Navs do that when you have it set to shortest route. Select fastest and that roundabout anomoly shouldn't happen.

I've noticed this too. It seems too keen to take me down tiny single track lanes. This is on the fastest route setting too... actually seems better on shortest lol.

The prevous HDD system was defiantly better at routing than this Garmin system.
