In my Zumo it’s in the navigation folder.
If you don’t like the route it’s made for you, ignore it, and go the way you want to go. It should just give a new route.
The only avoidance I like checked is “U” Turns. If it still gives me a “U” turn, I know I can likely go that way. It may be longer, dirt roads, or it’s looping me back onto my original route.
If I need to know what it is doing I just look at the Next Turn pages.
Run routes in areas you know and you will get a better understanding of how it routes.
