The GPS in my car is just awful

I don’t know why I even bother to use the GPS in my car anymore. The maps are out of date, the directions are just terrible and it generally behaves like an idiot.

Case in point:

CIMG0486

“Quick” is not the quickest route. I guess it is just a relative statement. And what value does the “Alt” route have?? “Hmmm, let me show you 2 routes which get you to your destination and a third which just takes your wandering.”

Finally, why wouldn’t they have just spelled out Alternative instead of abbreviating it? Seems like there is plenty of space on the button for it and this is a fixed environment.

I can’t wait for proper Android Auto or Apple CarPlay implementations because the auto manufacturers have proven themselves incapable of properly implementing electronics.
