So i recently purchased a Garmin. Havent had any problems until today. This morning for some reason it had me 3 blocks from where I actually was. So it kept 'recalculating my route' and I was unable to be prompted for the next direction. I tried turning it off and on, reentering the route etc with no luck. Is this a satellite issues or a device?

I've experienced this exact same issue with a Garmin - but it seemed to be area-specific (IOW, it worked well most of the time). I never did get to the bottom of it and Garmin proved to be completely unhelpful.

Our garmin in the city always looses signal, i could put it on top of the car and it says im two blocks over... nothing works in nyc that well...and it is always getting me lost in jersey.. but jersey is another story altogether with all the uturns you have to make just to get anywhere!
