I tried out the NUVI 50LM for the first time today, and it routed me all over the place, and mostly in the completely opposite direction of where I wanted to go. I had been to this destination before which is 26 miles southwest of my home. The NUVI kept trying to send me east to Pasadena, but I wanted to go southwest to Encino, CA. Because it was steering me in the wrong direction, the nagging from the GPS got more than a little bit irritating. The voice I was using did not announce street names, so I changed to a voice that did. I used the GPS a second time today, with the new voice, and tested it to see if it could route me home correctly, and it worked fine. I used it a third time today, and it almost worked right. I used the feature for finding a gas station I had been to before, and it routed me to the station, but wanted me to go another quarter mile beyond it. ???? Your guess is as good as mine. On the other hand, this GPS is very easy to set up and save your favorites. The points of interest feature is very good too. I'll try it again tomorrow for a 40 mile trip to Beverly Hills. If I get the goofiness again, this GPS is going back to Wal Mart.
