This technology is evolving, and the prices dropping, fast. So I thought I would date this thread. Been in a rental car for the past month, Hertz has a GPS device installed, so now I'm spoiled. But, the more I use it the more problems and shortcomings I experience. Most of the time it works pretty good. However, today for instance I asked it to get me somewhere with "Least use of Freeways". It's solution was to take me down Mopac in Austin, but have me take most of the exits and then get back on. I'm not kidding! I tried typing in "1 IKEA Dr" in Round Rock TX. It had never heard of Ikea Dr. (new street) so that went nowhere. Do any of the devices offer a way to input up to date info? It also seems to have little knowledge of one way streets. Coming home today I turned away from "it's" chosen route to take a pretty one I prefer. The damn thing asked me to turn around for several miles, when it did give up on that it told me to take a turn that would have been way out of the way. Finally, it gave in. In a small neighborhood near my home are 4 parallel streets. Let's call them A, B, C, and D. The Hertz GPS thinks A is B; B is C; and C and D are D. Here's another good (bad) one. There's a dead end near my place that 50 or so years ago used to be the main state highway. I drove up to it the other day and the GPS screen told me that in 1.2 miles I would be on my street. Perhaps...if the car could levitate over the barricade and a long ago removed bridge. Features that aren't offered, but I would like to see on a GPS receiver that I would buy...include weather info, and suggestions for driving around storms on a long trip.... and scenic routes. I'm shopping for a GPS for my new Star Stratoliner and I think I've read that one of the receivers out there does offer the "scenic route" feature. Any recommendations from GPS owners?
