Best route from Shawnee, OK

Can anybody recommend a good route ? Google and my TomTom disagree ? Used a old gps last year going to Destin and was routed through some undesirable areas in Louisiana. Got a New TomTom and it is routing us I-40 to Memphis then I-55 to Jackson MS. then Mobile to Pensacola if I don't set a time to depart. If I set it to depart now it wants us to go Memphis to Birmingham and south to pensacola. Google wants me to go to Texarkana to Shreveport to Jackson Ms to Hattisburg to Mobile and Pensacola. The Google route is less miles yet adds about 30 minutes drive time. Anybody got any suggestions ?

We are coming down on Friday the 8th for the airshow and staying the week.

I used to live in Memphis, and am aware of how to get there. I'd go thru Jackson to Hattiesburg then Mobile and Pensacola. That was how we'd always go and it worked out fine.

If you want to find out more, or have a question about mileage, I always consult ye ol' mapquest!

We just drove down from Tulsa. Went to Little Rock, down to Jackson, to Mobile, to Pensacola. Coming back went to Jackson, over to Shreveport, to Texarkana, to Paris, then north on 75. Time was about the same, but the drive down had much less 2 lane road and just seemed "better".

My parents live outside Rogers, AR. We driven several routes. The best seems to be Little Rock to Pine Bluff, US 65 south to Tallulah LA. to Vicksburg, to Jackson to Hattiesburg to Mobile to Pensacola. Watch out for speeding in LA..... Have a great trip.
