Has anyone had any problems with their navigation? Yesterday I was on my way home from Cummings, GA...traveling down 400 headed to I85, rush hour traffic...My husband called and I was talking with him...admitting I listened to the nav rather than what I personally knew to be right...It said to take exit 6 (so I did...dumb yes i know) but I thought maybe it knows a short-cut....long story short it took me through Atlanta streets during rush hour, took me an hour and 35 minutes to get on I85 south, one time I saw an entrance ramp but could not get over 3 lanes in bumper to bumper traffic...It would have most likely taken me 1/2 that time if I had not taken exit 6 but ran 400 to I85.

I don't think that issue is unique to the Nav in our Stingrays, every once in a while I find similar 'poor' suggestions/directions on my other car nav systems as well. With all of them it is best to 'override' a questionable direction especially if you know your way around where you are driving.

Do you have traffic enabled? I've had Garmin's and Harman's (many in dash units are Harman) send me on wild goose chases when they receive traffic info and whenever I route through Atlanta I'm always getting traffic reroutes.

The other option that may have caused this would be "Shortest Route" vs. "Fastest Route".

Why would you use Nav if you know where your going??

Lipstic, like you, your car is only human. I'm convinced the mistake was intentional. She just wanted you to drive her longer.

Because while I somewhat know the area it is not an area I drive often...and Atlanta rush hour traffic can be...daunting to say the least

But now you have an extra 40 hp to jump into that open spot about the size of your car ;)
