    Ok, I have an issue with my GPS but not what you are thinking, it works fine most of the time. My issue is this. I use my phone for work and personal, so I have a lot of work contacts. If I try to navigate to Dan, who works for Company X in Springfield, by using the contact option in the navigation program it takes me there no problem.

    If I try to navigate to Bob (using the same method) who also works for Company X but in their Hartford office, it takes me to Dan in Springfield!! Thinking I'm smarter than my gps so I'll just type in 100 Main Street Hartford, the location of Bob, it STILL routes me to Springfield. The only way I can get to Hartford is to type in 99 main street. Any ideas?

    That's odd. It must be getting confused by the same company name. Are you using google maps nav? It's possible that somehow google has those two places linked in their system. It might not be just your contacts. I have had google take me to a different location before. Lets say i want to go to best buy in a certain city, i google it then go to navigation but it wants to take me to the corporate office. It's rare, but i do remember something like this happening to me
