I use this a lot, and most of the time it is fabulous. Occasionally it has taken me on a route that will get me there, but sometimes through not the best of areas. For that reason, I now take a map with me and look at the route it chooses ahead of time, and make sure that looks the best. If I need to change, it has a fabulous re-routing feature, and hitting that usually works like a charm. Once I started using it this way, I've loved it!
