Coming back from the North Yorkshire Moors lastnight one of the *many* roundabouts I expected to be told to go straight on for the A174, it told me to take a right (3rd exit) and it then took me on a weird route to get back to the A66 to get me home!
What baffled me was that on the way there it kept me on the A174 main road so I was VERY surprised when I reached this same roundabout expecting to be doing the EXACT reverse of my journey that it took me on a weird detour... didn't actually take any longer to get home mind you!
I nearly always use the "get 5 routes" method and flick through them until the coloured line looks like the right route. I do like to ignore the satnav when poss - I try to keep it as a guide, or assistant, rather than being a slave to it. Still reckon it's very good though, certainly better than the good old tomtom.
I agree with your comment that Teleatlas isn't too good on data. I've got that in my phone at the moment, till my EX arrives. It's supposed to be UK & Ireland, but we went to Ireland a week ago, and it was fine around Dublin, but from about 20 miles south of the city, it only knew about the N(ational) roads, so all it displayed was a screenful of green if you took a scenic route. Not impressed! :roll:
Has anyone played around with the satnav DVD yet? I burned a backup with Nero, no problems, but I couldn't help noticing that there's loads of bmp files that are just begging to be changed? Has anyone tried running a modified DVD?
