I often use the NAV for routes I know and use the expected time of arrival info for planning. Time and time again it keeps wanting me to go off the main roads where higher speeds are posted and wander thru the countryside on secondary roads and though congested roads loaded with shopping stores and traffic lights. Clearly staying on an interstate that might be a couple of miles longer is advisable when you can travel over 60mph and not sit still at traffic lights. Serious bugs. Will have to take some additional time to review the 3 routes selected to get more detail on the flawed logic of the system. But I still like it overall. As previously posted the NAV got me around an interstate road closure north of D.C. and I still made overall fair travel time. I would not know what or where to go with I-95 closed and loaded with traffic.
    I noticed the same thing on my recent trip, I have the new 2013 version and went through a lot of neighborhoods on short trips around towns I was not familiar with. We were on the go so much that I didn't pay too much attention to whether I hit fastest or easy route selection. I'll have to test it around town now that I'm back from my trip.

    I have never taken the time to review the routes chosen for each of the 3 choices. Thats the only way you can know which is better. Quite often the display on the screen wont tell you enough to decide. What happens on a long trip when you get off route for gas, etc., is an unknown - does it revert back to the original route chosen? I have seen some strange route re-calculations when returning to your route after getting gas, etc. And choosing a DEST while traveling can also come up with some interesting routes as opposed to being parked when selecting dest.

    I've seen some poor performance occasionally with my system. Accuracy is poor. You have arrived, but you are a full city block from your destination. Routes can get weird and nav voice command will sometimes drop to a whisper. Conversely, the "bong" is ear splitting. Hopefully, the update will fix al least some of these problems.
