I hear a GPS through Madrid is useless since the major highways are under ground! C'est vrai?

Si es la verdad

We had the European maps loaded in the Zumo, so it was really easy. Your right about Madrid though, we really hadn't realized it until we got stuck on the underground perimeter, we ended up taking the first or second exit after missing ours (8 km later), and made our way through city traffic with the aid of the GPS again.

Our way out of the city was also the same we ended up doing a 15km detour, I wanted to avoid the perimeter, while the GPS kept on pointing me in that direction.

It was all good, we got to see more of the city that way.
