The Factory GPS Navigation Systems on the upper trims are kinda annoying.

Sometimes, when I am at the freeway fork, I have to pick one of the routes.
The GPS will not say which one to take. It just says stay on the lane/route, which is not even one of the options at the fork.
I would have no choice but to take one.
Sometimes, I take the left one, middle one, or right one.
Sometimes, I get lucky, and sometimes, I don't

Been late so many times because of this.

That's why I usually like to preview the entire route before I start driving, so I can fill in any little gaps in the info that the GPS feeds me.

At least if you do take the wrong fork, it will automatically calculate the new best way to get to your destination. Of course it will probably take longer. And thankfully, it won't yell at you for taking the wrong route like a wife would!

Good Idea!
Never thought about that :LOL:

I got the SEL trim so I have to pair my iPhone to the screen. So I can choose Google Maps or Apple maps. Both show clear directions on the screen and indicate which exits and lanes to be in. If you have a smartphone, I'd try using the smart phone for your navigation. Car Play for apple phone or Android Auto for Android phones.

Another cheap option is simply going on ebay and buying a fairly new Garmin or Tomtom standalone GPS. It will only be like 30-40. Make sure you look up mode numbers to make sure it's within 3 years or so old. They're such simple looking devices it's hard to tell how old they are. Get one with free lifetime map updates. Previous owner hopefully will have updated it prior to sale. Standalone GPS have really good user interfaces and lanes directions. I'd stick to Garmin or Tomtom.

I use my smartphone connected to my screen most of time but on longer trips I pull out the Tomtom I keep in the middle console. I don't have to worry about if my phone loses signal. The GPS is constantly pinpointing its location.
