Does anyone know if there is a way to force Google Maps to prefer bigger roads to fastest routes? I see the option to "avoid highways", but I want it to "prefer highways."
I'm in Ireland, and Google is killing me by routing us via the sheep trails and one-lane-wide-but-two-way-driving tiny roads. We keep clicking on the main route, and it keeps insisting on switching to smaller roads because it's "faster." I learned in less than two days that the tiny roads might be posted at 100 km/h but there is no way to go faster than 40 km/h. Google of course thinks it will save me time going down the tractor paths because the speed limit is so high. My human navigator is spending the entire trip heads down with a pencil and map, and going mano a mano with Google as it switches back to the small roads every time she taps the big roads. (Looking down at the map was an advantage as I drove over a few narrow, steep mountain passes that made her cry.)
