Went to So CAL for a week, The NAV in my 04' G500 sucks big time.

I really have this piece of Sh!t nav system. For a 2004 $80K vehicle, this NAV does not belong to this car. It has gotten me lost almost everytime I used it. It has almost caused me to crash due to its innacurate directions, the program is realllllllly Slllllllloooooowwwww. I almost threw my cell phone directly into the NAV screen at one time.

It took me to south central, inglewood, and all of the ghetto places instead of the freeway.
It also prompted me to hop on the freeway when the final destination was only 2 miles away street driving. So I got stuck and got lost for about 1.3 hours. I FREAKIN HATE THIS NAV.

Sorry to vent, but just thought I'd let you all know not to take this NAV during your trip. Your better off with a paper map.

04' G500 (G-Wagen) Benz (sold) <== we trully miss her.
04' Range Rover <== Traded with an Audemars Piguet RG Royal Oak Montoya =)
07' BMW 750Li <== traded this in, economy is down.
10' Acura TL w/ Tech package. (I'm loving this new ride)
09' GL320 BlueTec Black on Black w/ Everything except the grille guard.
08' Gallardo Spyder on HRE's

Yeah the problem with socal though is a lot of the area is under developement so it is very difficult for the system to find locations. I am unsure about inglewood though.
