Fun fact: GPS uses 10 bits to store the week. That means it runs out... oh heck – April 6, 2019

Re: The worst my Garmin has ever done

My Toyota nav system isn't too bad, but it does seem to lose the plot if it's doing a detour. I manually left the programmed route to avoid a motorway collision I'd caught on the radio, before the RDS had sent the update through. The Sat Nav insisted on routing me back to one junction down from where I had left the road, instead of taking me back on three junctions down, which minimised the junction count as I was on one of those weird parallel-to-the-motorway A roads.
