Why does navigation algorithm insist on following it's chosen route when I'm obviously not?
I often use the app (Ver 3.3.31 on a Samsung Android cell phone) when going to places I know the way so as not to miss a turn, especially at night. I pick destination and then what I believe is the closest to the route I typically use. Last week I was about 1/2 way to my destination and the App said 'take a right' while I decided to go straight. For about 2 - 3 miles it kept suggesting right turns apparently trying to get me back on its route even though the time to destination was getting longer, at one point, as much as 12 minutes more in what was to be about 30 minutes when I first decided to ignore the 'turn right' instruction. Then after about 3 - 4 miles (all 'back roads', not major highways) it just stopped providing recalculated directions or even showing my progress on the map. My app was set for 'fastest route' not 'fuel saver'. My old TomTom device which I used for years until they stopped supporting it, would easily recalculate the trip when I ignored an instruction.
