The only sure way not to miss turns is voice prompts from routes.


I gave up on routes several years ago because of many problems with routing and I now use tracks for bike trips.

I was recently on a business trip with two guys who were using routing with audible directions for simple navigating around a city. The unit was giving ridiculous directions and which got even worse when the driver properly ignored them.

I guess there must some secrets to making routing work, but I have never found them.
