    In my previous job, I had a Garmin in my work truck.
    One time, it told me to take a detour to get to my next delivery on my route, which was on the SAME road as the place that I was just leaving..
    It would have taken me 6 miles out of my way – and taken 10 minutes longer, especially since the detour had TWICE the number of traffic lights!
    I loved trying to beat the arrival time that the GPS predicted, because I knew better routes.

    Once we were in Phenix City, AL, trying to get back to Columbus, GA,and Garmin tried to run us into the Chattahoochee River. Last week she wanted to take us through a winding-roaded residential area rather than over to the Interstate. It may have been a shorter distance, but would have taken loads longer.

    I’m waiting for a GPS app called easier driving. I’m always fighting with mine because instead of the shortest fastest route I want to take a hassle free motorway. Better 50 additional kms and a car free motorway than a four hours drive fighting with cars and trucks.

    “I’m afraid I can’t do that, Dave.”
    “…my name’s Joe.”
    “Of course it is, Dave.”

    Once, when my friend was driving me from Palm Springs to Riverside for an appointment, his GPS told him to turn right. I said “Don’t do it! Stay on this road” because I’d been going there for quite a while and knew the correct direction. Another time, someone was coming to my home to have me sign some papers and she got lost following her GPS’s directions.

    Add 20 miles gas $4/gal, saved ONE minute… was it worth it?

    This happens to me all the time. That’s why I quit using mine. Was going to cedar Point once. Didn’t think we were ever going to get there following those directions. Had us going in circles and I knew which way to go. Just wanted to try it out. (:-(

    It is the ‘plan your route’ Also known as which bus to take to get to where you want to go.
    .
    it always gives the long route with the most transfers as the first choice.
