Well that's what my published patch is supposed to do, keep you on some 
roads if there are too sharp turns. What is sharp is determined by the 

BTW here is an improved patch, that does not show strange route 
descriptions (but then routing on v2 worked slightly faster, but I have 
no problems routing anywhere in Europe on my etrex).
( I also decreased motorway exits resolution, having them at 16 is 
really making map rendering impossibly slow).

There is only one drawback. If used together with shorter distance, then 
arrival times are way off (to slow), on the other hand without this 
patch routing shorter distance did not provide any decent routes anyhow.
