My wife and I were driving this morning and she told me that she has had it with Garmin. We live in Minnesota, but she was in Nebraska last week and the Garmin she was using had problems finding what she wanted. She said that the Google Maps found it right away.

I'm curious about a number of aspects about self driving cars, but I will restrict my question to three items. Hopefully someone can help me understand.
I know the car has many sensors, but I've also seen suggestions that you have to clean the snow from sensors, at the present time. Will the car work in the winter?
