Those of you who read my blogs regularly might remember, my navigational challenges to meet up with Brian England  & Michael Jacobs  in Pasadena. I am enclosing a link in case you missed it.

Anyway I was less than two miles from the Restaurant where we were to meet. Long story short I went on a 25 mile out of area magical mystery tour thanks to my navigation system. 

For those who did not believe me and said quietly under your breath he was making up the story, he probably left late and came up with this excuse. Well let me share a message I received from Mr. Google my route that I took to get to the Restaurant. When I saw this notice I had to do a screen save and share it with you.

Now keeping in mind John Pusa  who was there suggested next time to meet at Vroman's the bookstore. Then we would not have this problem.

Now it is here living proof, no tall story just the facts. On a side note ironically two days ago I received a Survey and Lexus was wondering how satisfied I was with my 2015  RX 350? Well I took the liberty  and praised the car and took many sentences to express my thoughts of what I thought of the Navigation System. I look forward to hearing from them since I said feel free to reach out to me about this survey.

See for yourself the way the navigation took me and then without navigation how I came home:))

hello Endre Barath, Jr. navigation system can cause delays,  I think next time we can meet at a favorite Wroman's Book store to avoid any navigation issues.

Endre- I feel your pain. When we moved to Leesburg, VA, our agent used her GPS to get us from point A to point B. The GPS took us miles out of the way and put us in the heaviest of traffic for that area.

That has happened to me as well in the past, Endre and I do believe you! It is frustrating and such a waster of time and resources!

Good morning Endra - ah ha so was it your car's navigation system.  I have one on my Grand Cherokee as well as apple Car Play.  I don't use the car system for the same reason.  I use google maps on Apple Car Play.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr., thinking other than what you said wouldn't even cross my mind. If I use the navigation system in my car, it is often different than GoogleMaps from Car Play. It is really frustrating, especially when you're pressed for time.

Kathy Streib  all I can say is ouch, I used to pre-drive the route when I was new to Los Angeles... then after 26+ years I knew my way around.... go figure two miles plus away and the scenic tour began, Endre

Endre, I had no doubt that the GPS took you off course. In my opinion, they are not 100% reliable which is why I still use MapQuest and print out the different routes. I love the fact that you can edit the routes to avoid tolls or highways, etc. and it has saved me a couple times when the GPS was not working properly. Your experience is one of those things that wasn't funny at the time but makes a good story now. Diana

We've had these runarounds with our navigation system too Endre, so I knew it was not a made-up story. We find that Waze works much better!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - I never doubted you.  I have had this happen to me several different times.  Never in my neck-of-the-woods.  It has happened when I am traveling down to the Phoenix area and many times near the Sky-Harbor Airport.  Now, my iPhone has always given me perfect directions.  However, when alone, I can't use it.  I have a "hands-free" system.

Endre Barath, Jr. - I know I shouldn't be laughing at what you wrote on the survey, but am laughing my fanny off, my face feels like it's about to crack from laughing so hard, and right about now, I could use a drink! 

FYI.... I finally got my 2022 new car and today I had orientation to learn about all the advanced technology and what all the buttons and levers mean. When it came time for the navigation, the sales person kept saying, now... are you sure you want GOOGLE? I mean, which navigation do you really prefer? I never did get her answer.

Oh, I've been there and done that too, Endre! It's SO frustrating and it's really not good to be driving in that mindset but, there we are - we HAVE to! 

I'm looking forward to hearing what Lexus has to say! On another note, I recently had a complaint about my car and was a bit annoyed by their repeated reaches to me to be sure they had solved my issue!
