    OK that will be an open flow rating not what you are actually pushing. At the end of the day as long as it works and you are happy with it thats all that matters.

    Just a word of warning for those who have younger or inexperienced drivers in their family. Please get them some real maps of the country. Had to help return home an extended family member from a rollover near Ballarat. They were following Google maps which led them off the highway onto some crappy roads. It was dark and they hadn't been to Ballarat before, so just had to do as the screen showed them.
    Mr Big Assed Roo decided a curve in the road was a good place to stand, thus causing the rollover. The tow driver said they would be very surprised if the vehicle wouldn't be totalled. All good, better the car than the driver. I'll be upgrading my 2 year old Melways and handing them the old one, just so they can at least check the route before trusting an electronic thingamawidgie.
    My advice is: not to follow my advice.

    Just tried Google maps for a route from Portland to Ballarat, and the route shown was absolute crap. Up to Heywood, across to Bessiebell then through Woolsthorpe. The roads were absolutely horrible twenty years ago, when we used to try different ways to get to Melbourne. They would be so bloody bad now. Imagine having a semi heading for you at night and having to drop a wheel onto the gravel to get past.

    Once again I agree mate. Google maps suggests that route because it's 6 minutes quicker and 7 km shorter than running down the main (far safer) highways. It's total nonsense.

    What my point is, you might be able to convince one, or maybe two young people to ditch app-based navigation and to learn to read and use paper maps, but you're pushing soft stuff uphill with a pointy stick mate when it comes to widespread change and awareness.

    Maybe the answer is to change the apps to show the safest and most populous route as first option. That should be the aim in my opinion. But how?? Beyond my miniscule level of skills and capability.

    Oh and by the way, I've driven that road between Woolsthorpe and Heywood a few times in the last few years and it really is a nice way to see the country side taking it easy in good light and good weather. But Jeepers Mc Creepers you do not want to meet a semi or even another car coming the other way, even on a good day. Single lane, two-way, broken and potholed bitumen, crumbly asphalt road with muddy goop each side going through Bessiebelle.... yep nice one Google Maps! Would be magnificent at night coming up against a semi who can't drop off the side. Your SW Vic roads Muddy are some of the meanest and nastiest I've ever driven no shit.

    Are you sure you are not in Brazil?

    About the Navi: on the "old days" when Navi was a dedicated device like a Garmin unit, you could set on the configuration to prefer main roads over shortcuts and you could even set areas where you didn't want to go at all. It was useful in cities like Rio de Janeiro, to avoid being inadvertently guided into the guerrilla zones.

    Maybe Google Maps or Waze (the top navi SW used over here) has the ability to set similar constrains.
