Likewise on the Edge 705, but I think that the option only exists for 
bicycle and foot routing, not for car/motorcycle. The only use that I 
have found for it is entertainment during train, boats or aeroplane 
travel, for providing rough estimates of the arrival time. It can be set 
in the Settings/Routing menu.

The setting is something like this: follow road? yes/no/prompt. The 
Garmin-Finnish translation of that is "yes/no/quick", although it should 
of course be "yes/no/ask". Garmin also thinks that units such as km/h 
are "devices", and the options for the "device" of height are meters and 
"miles" (I think it would be feet).

Best regards,
