Try using Waze. It's the app all the uber drivers use.

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.

Don't do it. You'll slowly start hating everyone around you and wake up one day to realize you actually hate yourself.
