    Not sure if bug has been revealed...

    I'm currently at 6031 McDaniel Lane, Charlotte NC. I am heading to 3600 Tarheel Dr, Raleigh NC. I have traffic turned on on my Overdrive GPS. I also punched in my next destination on Google maps for cross reference and better traffic data.

    The Overdrive gave me a route of US29N to 85N.

    Google maps gave me a route of NC49N which is 40 miles shorter and faster by 1h 15m. There is a backup on 85 causing a delay.

    The overdrive presented me with the annoyingly silent alternate route option which offered to save me 33 minutes on a route shorter by 9 miles so I accepted it. Not 90 seconds later it offered me another route that was 33 minutes faster but 9 miles longer so i accepted that and checked the route. That second route was putting me right thru the middle of that construction (the original route as if there was no construction). Then not 90 seconds later AGAIN, it offered me a route 33 minutes shorter and 9 miles shorter which routed me around the construction but I'm not 100% sure what roads it wanted me to run.

    There's a 30T weight limit bridge just east of these coordinates.

    35° 25' 31.89", -80° 24' 47.20"

    Yes,, I was going to mention that... It was found when I had a driver run empty one way and get routed, but loaded would not route.

    Thanks,

    That feature looks ahead and if a time/distance is less than x amount it offers a second route. You do not have to take it.

    Hint, if you pick a route, put in car mode if the truck route does not look right.. If the car route is different then you have a truck restriction on the route.. Google Maps goes by car routing.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Maybe I'm dumb but noticed today on my RM that every state is a light green color with the exception of Oklahoma which is a light Tan... Why?

    Graphics of the maps... Green - grass/trees, brown - sand/dirt

    I see OK the right half is green fading to a brown in the left half.

    Thanks,

    Have had the 740 now for 2 months and love it. Came across my first error so to speak yesterday on US67 south around Walnut Ridge, AR. It acted as if no road was there and tried to take me onto another route. On my paper map book I notice that area is staggered in a blue line meaning that was being built, so I'm guessing I just need to updated my GPS?

    New maps have not been released yet.. So if you check for updates you might see a few, but not for the Map Set yet.... stay tuned for this.

    Thanks,
