GPS funkiness

Pickup was at a store 20 yards from me. Same parking lot.

Would have loved to watch a pax face as a robot car drives away from the pickup location!

Depends what's between you and those 15 yards.
The app won't make allowances for custard to walk to you even though it's easier.

One good example is roads with dividers, app will navigate to put you on the other side legally.

Lol agreed.

In both of these cases there was absolutely nothing.

In the 2nd case I was on a 1 way street, pax in front of me. Even if I was on the other side of the barrier, I could have turned the corner and been where I truly was in about 30 yards.

Funny stuff. I show these pics to pax when they say something like GPS always knows best.
