Satnav idiosyncrasy

Post by Dandock » Fri Jun 08, 2018 4:53 pm

Three hotels, three misses from Heidi my trusty guide. 😡

#1. Drove straight past target without saying and then tried to send us down a no entry! Approached from the opposite direction and bingo!

#2. Similar story. Found the back entry and then recognised it properly after driving round the block and approaching from the opposite direction.

#3. Found the village but sent us in the opposite direction to the target. Having said that it took the local pharmacist about 5 minutes to determine that it was just 400 yards the other way up the road!

Mrs D was not pleased! At all! Happy days! 🥂🥂

I have some American friends who refer to the SatNav as 'The Bitch in a Box', i.e. she thinks that she is always right.
So when is this ‘old enough to know better’ supposed to kick in ?

I read that as "three hotels, three mrs" and thought, well done!
