More Stupid Routing
° Picture 1 shows the sensible route (green arrows) and the wholly inappropriate route chosen by my GO Camper (red arrows) set to Heavy Camper vehicle type with maximum width.
° Picture 2 shows Jennet Tree Lane, the correct route, with a vehicle in the photo to indicate its width.
° Picture 3 shows Hawthorn Lane, TomTom's route, again with a vehicle in the photo, indicating its width.
° Picture 4 shows the last passing place for over 341 metres.
° Picture 5 shows the road in between the passing places.
° Picture 6 shows the next passing place, over 341 metres from the last one.
° Picture 7 shows the roads above on a map.
Now consider this. If you had been driving a heavy camper vehicle, or even a car along that road and had met another vehicle coming the other way, how would you feel about having to reverse probably at least 150 metres, assuming you had met halfway, which of course you wouldn't know, so the actual distance could be even more? What about on a dark, wet winter's night with windows steaming up or in icy/snowy conditions? Does this not indicate once again that as the way things stand, TomTom devices are totally unreliable and therefore unfit for purpose? When is someone in the company going to take this matter seriously and get this problem sorted out? It seems that either they don't care or they don't have the necessary expertise to deal with this or both and for a company of TomTom's size and undoubted financial resources, that's absolutely shocking. Today, I was lucky that there was somewhere for me to turn around before going down Hawthorn Lane, but usually that is not the case. I purchased my GO Camper specifically to avoid narrow country lanes like that, but it seems that I have wasted my money.
