    All Tesco Mobile phones are supplied with Parental Controls switched on, so access to whatever they define as 18+ content is supposed to be barred until you supply proof of age (ie credit card). Perhaps an update had re-triggered it. If it should come back, easy enough to turn it off under 'Tariff' in 'My Account'.

    "Update" - yes, that may well be what it is. But it seems to have reversed itself, and it wasn't like that when I first got it, so maybe it's a setting that was activated in error and they've corrected it. Anyway, I'm back to normal.

    I've changed settings now to just demand the shortest route it can find, that does mean it will still suggest some very inappropriate footpaths but shouldn't increase the distance by 20%

    Also set it to exclude ferries for now.

    When I switched my contract within Virgin to go SIM-only I suddenly had problems with things like Untappd. Just had to go into my account and do a bit of fiddling to say I was over 18 (which they already knew, but I suppose they impose these things by default as a safeguard).

    I suspect that it's far easier to access nasty grot on an age restricted set phone than fairly innocuous stuff like PuG and Untappd.

    That's sorted it! Makes complete sense to all my locals, eliminating the nonsense and just including one dodgy footpath, which admittedly is by far the shortest route. Great job.
