The issue now is not Toll...it's my gps being stubborn...

The route i want is jln university - jln 16/1 - sprint - persiaran kiara but even when i am at the end of jln 16/1 near phileo, the gps still insisted i go back to fed hwy.

Cannot throw her out lah..i still love her :D

Put her to mute, indirectly call her to shut up and you be the boss.

Can you give us the coordinates like what Bro Bartmp8 suggested?? Just to double confirm the map. Thanks.

I'd guess my assumption was wrong then. However, when verifying the route with Toll Roads Avoidance on and off (in my Nuvi710), I would get different routes for both situations.

The route I tested:
Map: MSM NT 2009.40
Route Preference: Faster Time
Start: Seksyen 16, Petaling Jaya (N3.12252 E101.64486)
End: Taman Sri Sinar, Segambut (N3.18498 E101.64939)
Route with Toll Roads Avoidance enabled: 23km
Route with Toll Roads Avoidance disabled: 14km

I have a question.

I tried to look for Jalan TKK 2/4B in Puchong

But whenever I tried to key in Jalan TKK 2
It will automatically jumped to Jalan Tkk 2/5
I was unable to even complete the sentence of TKK 2/4B
There wasn't any other choices even

How do I get around it?

Please check your map version. I can find "Jalan Tkk 2/4b" in both MSM NT 2009.40 and MSM v4.08.

Hi Bro Yenjai, if you key in Puchong as your city, may be you won't get it because based on the address, it is located in Kinrara which is also in Puchong.

Mappers are trying to streamline all these towns and cities so that in future, users will not face this problem. Bear with us. Thanks.

So Bro Yenjai, at the moment it's advisable to select "Search All" rather than specifying the city ("Spell City") when performing Address search.
