MSM and toll avoidance

#1 Post by kimmchii » Wed Dec 21, 2011 12:35 pm

when i avoid using toll road in my garmin a10 with MSM map, the suggested route is not efficient, this is because MSM regards some part of the toll road as toll road eventho it is toll free.

1. from sungai dua to juru is toll free, pls change the status of this section of highway to toll free so routing can be more efficient.

2. when going to penang with toll road avoidance option, MSM map always suggest to go thru ferry, as penang bridge is considered a toll road, but ferry also cost money, in fact ferry is more expensive and much slower than penang bridge, so pls change penang bridge to a toll free road.

3. after toll lunas this whole section is toll free:

4. after toll jitra, to bukit kayu hitam is toll free.

5. this one too, the beginning of B.K.E

see garmin avoids it.

1. from sungai dua to juru is toll free, pls change the status of this section of highway to toll free so routing can be more efficient.
-The data is already there even in our source files. Even in MSM NT 5.xx also avoid the toll plaza but use PLUS highway from Juru AutoCity to Sungai Dua Exit.

2. when going to penang with toll road avoidance option, MSM map always suggest to go thru ferry, as penang bridge is considered a toll road, but ferry also cost money, in fact ferry is more expensive and much slower than penang bridge, so pls change penang bridge to a toll free road. - This is not the ideal case. What if other people use the same preference in navigating mode but had to pay toll to go to Penang Island eventhou the willing to take ferries? They will report the same problems and said the being lured to use penang bridge because MSM stated it as toll free.

3. after toll lunas this whole section is toll free: - Done already. Its in Garmin NT 2011.30

4. after toll jitra, to bukit kayu hitam is toll free. -

my garmin a10 MSM map is outdated, 2010.20. sorry :oops:
i have however downloaded and installed
MSM NT for Mapsource v5.33 Dec 2011 for my mapsource in pc
and
MSM NT v5.33 Dec 2011 for my garmin a10.
1. -The data is already there even in our source files. Even in MSM NT 5.xx also avoid the toll plaza but use PLUS highway from Juru AutoCity to Sungai Dua Exit.
yes you are right, i stand corrected.
2. This is not the ideal case. What if other people use the same preference in navigating mode but had to pay toll to go to Penang Island eventhou the willing to take ferries? They will report the same problems and said the being lured to use penang bridge because MSM stated it as toll free.
the reason i proposed the penang bridge be labelled as non-toll road was because my garmin with old MSM map 2010.20 try its best to avoid the bridge and like to route thru the ferry, but i checked again with MSM NT v5.33 Dec 2011 it is working correctly now. i dont know what has been modified and it is great now, bravo to the MSM team.
3. after toll lunas this whole section is toll free: - Done already. Its in Garmin NT 2011.30
thanks for the info.
4. after toll jitra, to bukit kayu hitam is toll free. -
