    I think most people issues with weird routes is how they have the traffic rerouting set up. If you move it from the default 10 minutes to 15 or 20, you will eliminate most of the odd routing.

    you worry about an estimated arrival time? That is the killer for Tesla Nav? I thought most modern tesla Nav WAS google maps?

    My prob with google maps is it often tells you to take a right/left when the turn is left/right.

    over the weekend an uber driver was blindly following the voice prompts and the turn clearly showed a left turn - but the voice prompt said right turn. We both heard it. She turned right before I had a chance to point out the mistake.

    I don't use Waze either because of the trailing location function which lets them track you after you are done . . even if you change the setting to 'when I use the app.' Google Maps now has the feature as well - and its hard to turn off.
