    My Garmin gps does crap like that too. It'll tell me to take an exit ramp and then back on the onramp in a few places. If I'm in the middle of NY it'll want me to drive 60 miles the wrong way to I81 instead of just taking 14 and get on US15 in PA. It usually wants me to drive through the Dallas cluater#### when I already know better to take 287 to I20

    Gps is pretty much useless after driving everywhere for years but it's good to use it to remind you where to turn sometimes.

    Or wen you have a fuel stop dialed in and it tells you to get off an exit early or an exit late because it doesn't realize that you can use the correct exit and go thru the underpass....

    :mad:

    My wife is convinced Hammer is in bed with the toll companies. Before I shut off tolls, I was starting to agree. Seemed like it would route you out of your way just to hit a toll road.
