    Has anyone encountered the GPS giving different turn by turn directions which were opposite of what the on-screen display showed? Yesterday I had the GPS tell me to make a "sharp right" when the on-screen display showed the correct directions which was a sharp left (U-Turn). The GPS did it to me twice yesterday telling me verbally to make a sharp right when I had to make a U-turn.

    I had my MCU replaced which fixed the spinning GPS problem and showing me driving in a river when I was actually on a road.
    When I called Tesla they said they never heard of anyone saying that the verbal turn by turn directions was different than the on-screen directions

    It sounds like your voice commands have been taken over by the Tea Party. :)

    We should probably just rename teslamotorsclub.com to randomunrelatedjab.com at this point.

    Yes, the turn by turn is "disk" based while the main map is google maps based. I get this on one of my trips where there is a new onramp. Turn my turn wants me to circle around a business complex to an older on ramp, while the main screen shows the new ramp. I'm hoping that the update due when I get my service will have the updated maps.

    I turn the annoying sound off and don't worry about it.

    Yes, I've had this produce weird effects when I drove to an address in a new subdivision. The street I was going to didn't exist for the built-in navigation, but Google found it no problem. Of course the system didn't tell me this. The strange result was I asked for "123 Street A" and when I arrived it announced I was at my destination, "456 Street B". What the heck?

    Baffled I look at the display, and I can see "Street A" on the navigation map. I can't navigate there, but I can see it. So I did a U-turn, turned left, turned right, and found the house I was looking for.

    It seems the navigation simply took me as close as it could get me to the geographic coordinates I had asked for, even though that was completely the wrong place.

    Not unique to Model S; this happened with my TomTom in a rental car a few weeks back, I ended up 200yds from where I wanted to be but the address was in a gated community and I was on the wrong side of a river so the net result was I had to drive for 6 miles to get to the correct address.
