7. no people that have complained have gone and bought something better and come back and extolled not having a problem.
It would repeatedly try to route me off of a motorway because of a minor delay ahead.
:evil: :evil: :evil: Seriously, I'm so glad to find this thread. I thought I was the only one and going insane. I've contacted Garmin over this exact issue. I currently live and work in the New York metro area. Once a week or so I have to make deliveries for my business. It runs me from Jersey, to Staten Island, to Long Island to pretty much all over this area. Absolutely every problem that has been written here, I've experienced. I've also tried EVERY possible solution. I even went as far as to set my "eco route" telling the GPS my car only got 2 MPG in the city, thinking this would keep me off back roads. NOPE!! It still takes me through the heart of the city and keeps me off highways... At this point, I've had the GPS for a couple of months, so there is no returning it to Best Buy. Hopefully Garmin will rectify this situation... ironically enough, they just wrote me ANOTHER reply as I was writing this... "If the unit is taking a different route but is still getting you to the final location, than it is doing its job."Really? Seriously? I'm about to call the BBB on these a$$holes.
But this is just a bizarre routing anomally. I was taking i-278 East to LaGuardia Airport and the route insisted on taking me off the highway. Naturally I just ignored it. All my avoidances were normal. TrafficTrends and MyTrends were disabled. The map is CN 2013.10, which was pre-installed when I bought the 3550 last month. I tried stopping the route and restarting it at various times along the way and it made no difference.
