I have found that I get differing routes to the same location on differing days. Both routes takes around the same time. Any idea why???

I would say that it's a 50/50 choice and depending on some seemingly insignificant factors, you will get a slightly different route.

Sometimes you will get a different route depending on which direction you are facing on the road, for example.

Can you tell us the start and end points and a rough description of how the routes differ?

I've noticed this too when recalculating after going off route. On my regular route to work, I ignore the Quest's advice to take the motorway and go via B roads. When I leave the recommended route, it seems to offer a couple of alternatives. Perhaps it depends on the exact position when it starts recalculation.
