Hope someone can help, I'm not sure if i have set it up properly but the distances to my destinations in "my favorites" from my home location are all out by 18 to 25% except home which is 0.0 miles.

Having been on holiday to cornwall i saved my location into my favourites.
I know it's 258 miles to get there but the garmin reports it to be only 211 miles away. if you simulate the route there its smack on with the milage.

other exampes are trip to wales is 75 miles, favourites says its only 64 miles to get there, simulated route turn by turn says 74 miles, smack on again.

last example , mother-in-law is 4.4 miles away, Garmin says 3.3.

Anybody any ideas, Thanks.

Distances in favourites are 'as the crow flies'.

Until the unit calculates a route this is the only distance it can show.
