I just got an HP iPAQ rx5915 which has the Tom Tom navigation system. I have been fooling around with it for a few days and Tom Tom allows you to remove a route in the plan. When you do that, it replans around the road. I did that today and it showed the removed road and the new routing in the display. Don't know if Naviteq navigation system used by Garmin (I think) allows the same procedure. It may be in one of the menus someplace. I doubt such a feature is exclusive to Tom Tom.

I got the unit because it is really a pocket PC with the GPS built in.

Cheers
