Re: City Navigator 2009 available @ TVNAV.Com
I took a trip last summer with my shiny new Garmin 276C from Fl to Ca to Id to Fl and all I can say about City Navagator 8 (and Garmin) is what a piece of crap! I doubt that spending another 60 bucks will help any. Here's what happened. Looking for gas and being very low near Dubois, Id., where I KNOW there are a few stations right off I-15, Navigator told me nearest gas station was 21 miles from that exit! I had many other glitches, wrong lane to get on a freeway in L.A. No Tank museum in places to go, you name it that program is the Pits!
Best one of all, probabley a software glitch in the unit but??? I'm heading east on I-90 out of Billings going towards Sheridan,Wy and ask it to take me home fastest way first,(wanted to see if it would rt me onto 212) now mind you I HAD this mapped in already, it tells me I need to drop south at I-25 and go to NM and thru Texas and such to get home. It's 2450 miles from my doorway to Sheridan, it wants me to go 4600+ miles to go home! I took a photo it was a hoot. It has a long way to go before I'll spend the money again, I'll need it for gas money next time it gets me lost! Just my luck!
