RE: Distance calculation not according to setting

Hi MSM,

Would like find out why that when i make my setting to Shorter Distance and avoided toll and i set from Monash University to MMU Cyberjaya the distance for the road that i use is about 20+km only but the GPS system calculate about 30k+km. Is there any problem with the map i'm using as the version is Malsingmap NT2013.10 and it's the Toyota AVN.

We do not know the actual situation.
If the gps device announced it is 30+ km and if you follow the suggested route and turn out to be 20+ km, then something wrong the device navigation software.
If you didn't follow the suggested route and drive on your own way and get 20+ km, then most probably this new route doesn't exist in the map. Well, NT 2310.10 map, most likely outdated.
