Bad google maps directions. My phone uses this and on more than one occasion I've gotten very confused as to the location of a house because of the directions.
Sunday before last I was going to the home of someone from my church for the first time and the gps directions told me "Your destination is on the left." Now mind you, these people lived on "Bear Creek" but we were only on "Bullriding road" which lead to Bear Creek. What's more, their house turned out to be on the right side of Bear Creek and not the left side of Bullriding Road. I double checked the address I put in and sure enough, I'd put in 12345 Bear Creek but it had me stopping at a similar address on Bullriding RD. OOokay.
Try Waze it is free on IOS and I think on Android and Windows. Google bought it. It is crowd sourced. I've used it in Houston for several years and it has only done what you are talking about one time - it put a restaurant in the middle of a subdivision's Lake/water feature. But that had to do with the way the little center was designed.
It can even accurately locate our farm/wild life refuge. It does get a little confused how to get there. It will get you to the turn off of the FM road - but if I leave it on - the private dirt road and the really private dirt tack across a neighbor's property make it go a little crazy trying to find a road.
Because it is crowd sourced it also warns you of
- speed traps
- objects on road
-Vehicles stopped on shoulder
-Animals along shoulder
-Weather (They need to add street flooding)
-closures of roads
If say there is a ladder that flew off a landscaping truck on the tollway (bounced over my car kind of diagonally when it really happened). You can tap the screen and say Warning Object on road. Now every wazer behind me will get a warning. When it gets cleared someone will do the same to say it is gone.
When they close/move roads Waze both allows users to plot the new road -and uses GPS data of people traveling the new road to move their maps. The county is doing a complete change in the surface road intersections on my route home - most changes are updated within 12 hours and confirmed in less than 48.
