    Re-Calibrating new route after deviating from original route

    You may want to double check the Turn List after a route has been redone due to a deviation from the original, e.g. getting gas, taking a different road, etc.
    As I was driving up the NJ Turnpike headed for NYC and a destination on the other side of the GWB, I happend to check the Turn List to find that following a route re-calibration, the NAV had me heading for the Lincoln Tunnel and then heading up local roads north to my destination! I then canceled the route and redid the DEST route while traveling on the Turnpike. The new route was correct and had my back on track going over the GWB.
    So dont necessarily assume that once you get gas or otherwise stop at a rest stop that your original route will be re-instated. Wait till you are
    back on the main route and then re-do your route. This problem is less likely to happen I believe when the routes are simple - like traveling south on I-95, south of D.C. Although for some reason this simple route got skewed too after a re-calc and it wanted me to take I-85 south of Richmond towards Raleigh rather than stay on I-95 to South Carolina. Go figure! I re-did route while on I-95 and the proper route was back in place.

    That's why when I bought a 2012 coupe I didn't get the navigation system. I had a sedan before that and it had the navigation system and it was always doing stupid things. I always wished I had a GM engineer with me when using the navigation system to show them some of the crazy things the navigation system did.
