Gives you a warning for "sharp curves ahead" when it's a slight curve at BEST but NO warning at the real sharp curves. RR track warnings after you have crossed them.
Now the latest, we were 4 miles from a place just was not sure if it was north or south of us. So I put into the GPS it says go 8 miles south. Second guessing myself I went the 8 miles south then it says to make U turn go north 10 mi.
We passed 10 or crossovers could have U turned at any of them, but no it picks the one crossover where posted "no truck U turns". Concrete curbing all around no way you U turn with TT. Are you kidding me right now?
I have the 760 and have similar problems. On one occasion it wanted me to go down the interstate for approx 8 miles, make a U turn and come back 8 miles and take the off ramp. It has done this on the RV mode and auto mode. Othertimes it makes you go around the block instead of continuing straight down the road or puts your location on the wrong side of the road. Well as they say, it is only a tool to assist. It has saved me from going down a road that had a low bridge and no place to turn around. I would say that it is approx 95% accurate. Now when we put in a destination, we check the map on the screen and directions to see that it is bringing us correctly, without detours, to our destination.
