    Is anyone else experiencing issues with the navigation? It sends me in the worst possible direction.

    It seems like every route is longer or not using what I wold normally get with Google maps. Not sure how to explain it but I checked the settings and can't find anything.

    Last week I was on the freeway and it wanted me to go west 4 miles on another freeway to then go south and back to a freeway I was already on. It's hard to vision but basically it was the worst possible option. Then I thought maybe it factors in traffic but there was no traffic.

    Any tips?

    I don't have any tips, but I'm experiencing the same thing. Whenever I use it when I leave my apartment, it tells me to take this unpaved back road that adds at least 8 minutes to every estimate. It's not like it doesn't know the better path exists, because as soon as I go right instead of the left on the sand road, it recalculates and drops the estimate accordingly. On top of that, it's always recommending that I take toll roads that I really don't need to take for any reason.

    Yes that is exactly what happens to me. If I know the route and know there is a better way I will ignore it and it will eventually find the better way but it won't give me the best option from the beginning.

    I hope someone on this forum can post some sort of help!
