I've been using a very basic Garmin nuvi for the past couple of years and find that, while it does ocasionally have some flaky behavior, it really works well and is easy to use.
But the one problem I keep having is that I have been on a hignway stuck in traffic only to exit and have the unit keep trying to get me back on that highway. I know that having the traffic feature will help on this case, but I have also experienced the same problem when a local road or bridge is unexpectedly closed. There may not be traffic, but I have to keep driving and guess when the unit will actual recalculate the route away from the original route.
So, my question is if there is a GPS which allows you to somehow indicate I want an alternate route if for some reason the original route is a problem?
Any insights would be appreciated.
