I just say this to confirm... The GPSrs have a mind of their own sometimes...

I ran my address to NC and it took me across 895. Try 688 sugartown Rd , Malvern PA 19355. Work address, took me across 895 when run to NC on the Garmin. I tried short, but that failed I guess...

Yeah, I was just trying to see what worked. We are looking at the rv version. If it does not avoid the restrictions, what good is it over my current nuvi? I am only 10 6 so I can read the bridge signs..

Used a Magellan roadmate after 6 months I gave up on it. It was wrong about 50 to 60 percent of the time. I now use Copilot on my IPhone and been well pleased. It's so far been 95 percent accurate.

for ever day use I stick with google maps gps on my smartphone. easy input by just saying directions and the place I want to go. I have several gps units and like it the best. the Radio gps on my 2860GS is ... well something to be desired

BTW on a side note I use gas buddy app which also has gps type directions. Go to a gas station select directions and it goes to google maps.. nice to see if easy on off freeway etc. Helps plan fillups and can search by towns ahead for your favorite gas or prices
Sorry if off topic but fast and easy to use with smartphones gps

Use as a prompt or backup. Know where you are going. GPS frequently uses very inefficient route.
