I have a Tomtom GPS. Last night it took me in the opposite direction. I needed to go North and it took me South. Today -- same story. I was near the railroad tracks and they were on the right, it showed they were on the left. It told me go left on a one way street alloing only right turns. What is going on? I never had thsi issue before? Is it toasted?
If maps get outdated enough, any device can go awry. Keeping your maps updated should keep it working fine. TomTom has Tele Atlas map updates at their map store here: http://www.tomtom.com/products/maps/select.php
If your maps are in fact updated and you're still having difficulty, it might be time for an upgrade

Are you sure you were heading north at that particular time? Gps show your direction at that moment and time. Just because your road is going north does not mean that the road is always going north, sometimes they change directions to go around obstacles that were in the way of the road design, IE mountain, town, river. The sign for the highway may say your are heading north when in actuality you are heading south to go around something.
The gps will not take into consideration the curve of the road, it just tells you the direction you are heading. Hope this helps.
I called the Garmin 800 toll free number and they helped me to download a fix. The man said there was a glitch. It worked perfectly last night. I also didn't have a voice and the Garmin said none was available.
