I found the same too on my Etrex Vista HCx.

I tried to calculate a couple of routes and found they took several
minutes to finish after reaching 100%. 

One interesting observation was this did not seem to occur (or was much
reduced) after applying the change for "route recalculation
sensitivity". Perhaps it was just co-incidence, but it makes some sense
that the routing algorithm may make use the declared map resolution.
