This is the kind of thing that gives me an aneurism. I have had similar experiences with the GWB. Maddening.
I played around a bunch with the Waze app. Need to try more while traveling, but so far it looks excellent and even highlighted the crap road that I was on Friday as a "don't do that" route.
