Stupid Garmin Nuvi...

Recommended Posts

Mr. Garmin, can you not see that I'm pulling a loaded trailer?? https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=cardinal+dr,+winchester,+va&daddr=38.9938811,-78.5148051+to:Fairview+Road,+Woodstock,+VA&hl=en&ll=38.968285,-78.49122&spn=0.067066,0.104628&sll=39.033205,-78.467395&sspn=0.268019,0.41851&geocode=FUV1VQIdBc9T-ym3n63tUpG1iTF-MyJbjbkDmg%3BFdn_UgIdi_VR-ynL0MQ8hKS1iTE-upykEwCQww%3BFaa9UQIdkbhR-ykLqIrSeq-1iTEkGhhN28EUqw&t=p&mra=dvme&mrsp=1&sz=12&via=1&z=14 My point is... If you see SR. 623 in the lower part of the map (before Mr. Garmin told me to take a left onto Zepp Rd).. It takes me to the same interchange (off the map) at Wardensville Grade Rd.. SR623 would've take me 2 miles further... but 30 minutes sooner. (Actual time, not Mr. Garmin's "idea" of 7 minutes...)

I do think the GPS makers should have a button for RV... to avoid routes which are not RV friendly. It should be a simple as a button on the menu.

Anyone ever try pulling a trailer through NY with a GPS? Can't be done. If you don't hit a bridge you'll definitely get some tickets.
