Question about GPS
Julie-I understand. Our street is only 18 feet wide, so it makes sense. However, I typed in a restaraunt POI last night. It took me to the area, then told me to turn right instead of left on to a side street, and this was about 200 feet from the POI address...I'm still appy with it, but was surprised about the POI mix-up. any thoughts?
I have a Garmin as well and as we speak, I am at our vacation house which is essentially in the middle of no where (but its gulf front so the lack of even a BP is worth it!). I had a similar problem on the way here and there are a few reasons I know that will cause it:
1. If there was recent construction on that road (you have an older, not ancient, just older gps unit) then the maps are slightly out of date. try going to garmin.com and getting the most recent update.
2. I know for a fact that in heavy urban areas (or the rural sort), there are tons of problems with this sort of thing. Its just a matter of basing their maps on faulty databases.
The only real suggestion I have is that you update the software from garmin.com
Hope this helps and have a good night!
