Sonicwall routing between VPNs

We have an HQ and 4 remote sites.  Each has a sonicwall.  HQ has 4 VPN's setup pointing to each remote site and they are working great.  Each remote site's sonicwall has a single VPN pointing to HQ.

But now they want to send traffic from remote <---> remote for a new phone system  (currently remote sites can only talk -traffic-wise-  to HQ, they cannot talk to each other)

Do i just need to setup Route policies?  
Or change the current VPN's, but keep the same number of VPN's?  
Or do i have to now add 3 more VPN's to each remote office sonicwall?


thanks

All three of your suggestions are workable(depending on what you want to achieve)  But I would go with the first suggestion, setting up route policies.

This will be easier to manage in the long run as you wont have to manage so many VPNs.

So the Route Policies would only need to be setup on the 4 remote office sonicwalls?   I would not need to alter anything on HQ Sonicwall?


Does this look right:

SOURCE: ANY
DESTINATION: full local IP range of other remote office
SERVICE: ANY
GATEWAY: local IP gateway
INTERFACE: XO LAN
METRIC: 1


i assume something there is not right, cause it didn't work

Here's an article to help. But of course, some of this depends on the models of Sonicwalls you have:
