I think this may explain the problem:

Note though that if you click to go forward there, the road is magically open.

The maps can be both very slow, and very fast, to update. Stupidly so in some cases. I think it is Derby that had a well-worn shopping centre in the middle of a roundabout on the maps - took years to be updated. But the little road on a new estate opposite our house appeared in the next update.

Looking for logic here is a sign of madness. Rolling Eyes

Thanks for taking so much trouble, Matthew.

I've had to unblock five roads, but it now routes properly! Thumbs Up

I looked at the TomTom maps and I think the problem is with this roundabout: (52.803608, -0.60827). Coming from the south or east, it's impossible to continue to the west and a detour is taken instead. See also this link: http://bit.ly/YEf4oD.



I'll report it as well using TomTom's online Map Share Reporter tool.
