I've noticed as well that the system frequently goes off the rails just as you are approaching the end of a trip. With the destination literally in sight, the system will instruct you to make a left turn instead of a right...

As for the dreaded "If possible, make a legal U turn...", who the hell knows.
OK, good to know. I did not have a chance to try it thanks to Google maps Send to Car thingy.

But in all honesty, I have yet to be mislead anywhere in the GTA (that's Toronto area for our bros down south) and I sometimes travel to 4-5 unknown locations in the West end in a day. My worst observation is not knowing the difference between collectors and express on 401 and constantly telling me to veer right instead of just shutting up and letting me drive straight LOL. And sometimes taking me through the city rather than doing 5km more but directing me to a highway.
