Re: The worst my Garmin has ever done
I had that happen just last week. I was heading up 192 in Kissimmee Fl trying to get to Coliseum of Comics. I was about a quater mile from having to make the U-Turn and pull into the car park when the until-then Trusty Garmin ordered us to make a left now. Intrigued, we did.
At one point on the single track road we saw a sign "Road Narrows".
"Where do you keep this GPS?" I asked, after we had finished laughing hysterically.
My wife said "Next to the old TomTom".
"Well there you go! The bloody TomTom has infected the Garmin with Stupid Route Syndrome!" I yelled.
We navigated the chicane with one wheel in each roadside ditch, and drove slowly past what looked like a Buddhist commune c/w outbuildings gilded to eyewatering levels. As more statuary and architecture became apparent we became less sure of the Buddhist attribution and entertained the possibililty of vile cultists a-la HP Lovecraft.
Eventually we reached the place we wanted to be after a needless diversion through banjo-player country, swamps and non-euclidean architecture. The route had, I estimated, cost us at least ten minutes.
