Mine has a bit of a lag in fast traffic, too, and sometimes I blow by my
turn. My handheld I use on the boat and ATV are the same, too, being slow
to register changes in compass headings, bearing and mph.
Cool. So it even shows children, dogs & little old ladies in the
street? Or piles of glass. . . broken down cars. . .
I guess I'm old fashioned. If I can't see, I stop. [and get off
the road in case there is someone out there with a GPS to show them
where the street is]
Actually it is such a great aid for positional awareness that you have a
lot more time to scan for people in the street or whatever.
Especially if you are in a strange area. Instead of straining to read
street signs on a tree lined street you plug in your destination and you
don't even have to look at the GPS because it will tell you in advance
of the turn and when to turn. If you catch it in your peripheral vision
while scanning the mirrors the display will also call to your attention
what action is required by adding colored arrows and zooming the
display. Makes for much safer driving and you have a lot more time to
actually pay attention to driving.
I'm not lost. I'm geographically challenged.
Here is bad review for GPS/phone combo. (searching cyber Monday).
