Excellent car, pass on the navigation

2014 Buick Encore Premium 4dr SUV (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


We have had our encore for a bit over a month.
We are pleased with everything except the navigation.
Worst GPS routing I have ever used.
On a five hour trip -- using side by side with our portable TomTom the buick system routed us 30 miles farther and 1 hour longer.
We do not trust the navigation at all.
It can not find addresses our TomTom has and it routinely routes a longer distance or time.
We will not use it for anything other than finding an address in town -- if it even can find the address.
Do not waste your money on the navigation system.
Spend $100 on a portable instead of $800 for the car system.
