#5 of 6 Navigation system 2012 Elantra Limited
Mar 19, 2012 (9:26 am)
Bought this with full package (navigation, moon roof, leather seats, etc.).
I guess my simple question is, does anyone else who has this system think it is stupid?
Strictly, from a purely routing point of view, this system consistently chooses routes that are longer in both distance and time no matter what parameters are set. I have a Garmin that needs to have an update that does a better job.
I live in the Phoenix Arizona area. On a trip to Las Vegas the system insisted that the best (fastest) route was through Flagstaff. This route is 408 miles compared to 315 miles on route 93 through Wickenburg. The estimated drive time on the recommended route is 6H:36M compared to 5H:35M on 93.
Similarly, on a trip to Tucson the system suggested two routes (the first 123 miles, the second 117 miles) with estimated drive times of 2:12 and 2:15 respectively. The known route (not suggested or even acknowledged by the system) from the start point is 101 miles with an estimated drive time of 1:58 (and I know it can be done in this time without breaking any speed limits).
It's bad enough that the fuel economy is not what I thought it would be (see my other posts) but the NavSys adds insult to injury by suggesting longer and more time consuming routes.

Since I have been deciding whether to get the GLS or the Limited, do you think that it's not necessary to have the Navagation in the limited? I realize it's not an option in the Gls. I have a garmon that works fine and would rather save the money if the nav system isn't what it should be in the limited.
