Mein Auto: 2011 X3
Angry GPS problems

The GPS in my 2011 X3 is unreliable and sometimes downright idiotic. It will take me miles out of the way, then double back on a parallel road. Once, it directed me in a circle that would have added more than 50 miles to my trip. This happens no matter what the setting (fastest, shortest, etc.) Not surprisingly, the arrival times it shows are WAY off. Iíve raised this issue several times with the dealer, who is unable, apparently, to do anything about it, as itís a manufacturerís (i.e., BMWís) software problem. This is a $2000+ option. That it doesnít work does not reflect well on the brand. The BMW GPS is pretty to look at, but itís my $100 Garmin, mounted on the dash, thatís fast, accurate, and spot-on. What's wrong with this picture?
