It gives absolutely incorrect directions. It says to get on I-94/I-80 on the right side of Torrence ave, when it was moved to the left five years ago. It told me to turn down a dark dead end street rather than the expressway one block further.

The voice map told me to exit the expressway (I-80), drive through a town for four miles and get on another expressway I-394 and merge onto I-57 and then to I-80! Why? Another time, it repeatedly told me to exit the expressway several exits and cities too soon. When I refused to get on I-80 East to head to Chicago on the right side of Torrence and instead got on 80/94 West on the left side of Torrence, it told me to exit at every point for miles. When I did exit to get toll money and then started to get back on, it told me to make a U-turn, so I could drive to the opposite end of town and get on 394 which would then take me back to I-80.
It tells me to go four blocks north of my home and then back south, and finally, it tells me to pass my house and enter from the street behind it rather than in front of it. It lead me down a dark, dead end street when the expressway I need was one block further. When I visited my daughter at college, it literally had me pass the expressway entrance and head to the other end of town to take it there - and no, I am not mistaken - it was the same expressway. I nearly threw the thing out the window so many times in frustration before I finally returned it three weeks later. Customer service was disinterested in the extreme geographical mistakes in their mapping routes and to add insult to injury, they even put out a note on their website that they couldn't honor the 20 dollar rebates so don't try to cash them. It is much safer to have nothing, rather than have this defective product.
