As cities add more and more roads â€¦ it's harder and harder to move over 6 lanes and prepare to exit. And OMG, if you miss that exit you will be punished trying to get back to square 1. I have built in and iPhone â€¦ but still keep a Garmin in the console â€¦ sometimes one is just plain wrong â€¦ the other is not. (there is an intersection going to our rental condo â€¦ factory nav tells you to turn right and you'll just go in a circle because it's really a left !)
