May be this is the reason MB doesn't include unpaved roads in the Command Nav.
Many moons ago before the day of GPS to be the scape goat, as a Physics guy, I decided to visit the Mecca of all Physics people, Los Alamos, NM. I headed east from San Ysidro on NM Hwy4 taking what I believe was the short cut. The map I had did indicate portions of it was unpaved. What I didn't know was that the dirt portion was badly washboarded from rain. So I did all this without the help of a GPS. It looks like this road is now paved.
My high school buddy's farm house is still on a dirt road. That road was where I learnt to drive at speed on slippery surface.
