    W Grant Line road (E Grant line road is fine) in Tracy California has a weight & length limit, yet it shows all good in the atlas but I assure you its posted and I got a warning for it. Trucks all over this road too. Its next to a Amazon Distro. This tiny stretch of road is County not city is what I was told.

    The audible vs the imagery does not match, while the audible says go left right etc, the image to support what its saying and its happened A LOT in So Cal, I was on 605 I think in San Diego it said there was no route it could find yet 605 dumps you into interstate 5 which is obviously truck friendly.

    then there is this, right here in downtown SLC. Its pretty clear this isnt a legit way to go. IDK why it does just say stay on 800 S ??

    I want to use Hammer, but I think Ill have to wait for now until things get worked out.

    Here is another one, for whatever reason Hammer wants me to get off the freeway then back on - of course I didnt but I cant see why it would do that. This direction was there since I plotted it in LA, when I got there it would of put me into traffic.

    The is Frank Sinatra Drive, Vegas

    I have been using it next to my old TND 720 and its been pretty good actually.

    I would like to make a suggestion if I can, it would be nice to have a mile marker logo on the screen and exit number along with the name of the exit.

    With my old phone, about a year ago I found if I didn't shut the app down at the end of the day it would want me to get off the freeway at every exit when started driving again. Sometimes it would take me weird places. Since I got a new phone (Samsung A51) most of those issues went away.

    It's possible not all the issues are Hammer's. Some may be the phone you have. Just sayin.

    Quick question.....

    Considering purchasing an android tablet for dedicated Hammer use. Will the tablet need to be connected to wifi or cell signal to work continuously, or will downloading offline maps (while connected to wifi) allow me to use it without continuous wifi or cell signal?
