Careful if you are headed to Port Everglades (Florida)

 

This is re-posted from "Keeping the Windmill Alive" since cruisers headed to Ft. Lauderdale (Garmin's "Port Everglades-Northport" POI) may run into it.

I had installed the 2016.10 map update before a road trip to Ft. Lauderdale's Cruise Port Terminal 2. What a disaster. The GPS tried to route us through a parking garage and shopping mall that apparently had been built since the map was last updated. Had the same problem on departure where the routing tried to turn us onto a street that had been closed.

The 2016.20 update shows about half of the shopping mall but still tries to route you through it, although the road ends in a 10 foot high barbed-wire security fence around the port!

Routing error has been reported to Garmin cartography, but cruise passengers beware.

Good to know, hope it will

Good to know, hope it will help someone.

It's a ploy. The Mall did it

It's a ploy. The Mall did it to get you to go shopping. It's not a drive-through mall yet, is it?

Map Errors

I run into these types of errors from time to time.

May have something to do with the fact that the maps are 2 years old before they make into a new map version.

In the Outer Banks

They have drive thru beer marts...

It's about the Line- If a line can be drawn between the powers granted and the rights retained, it would seem to be the same thing, whether the latter be secured by declaring that they shall not be abridged, or that the former shall not be extended.

Gotta watch...

...those parking garages.

I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

Had a similar issue in

Had a similar issue in Pittsburgh some months ago. tried to get from south side to downtown (a 5 - 10 minute deal), and nuvi had me going into a parking lot before I used human common sense to correct for the apparent error.

Thanks

Thank you for the warning

Re:Careful

Probably just wanted you to enjoy a more scenic route.
