2015 Nissan Murano: Nav to Nowhere
May 29, 2015
I don't often venture north of Interstate 10 (the freeway that basically bisects the Los Angeles County basin), so before I headed to Westlake Village for the annual Heels & Wheels event, I consulted our 2015 Nissan Murano's navigation system. I didn't have the address at hand, but the Four Seasons Westlake Village was listed as a Destination in the nav, so I selected it and hit the road.
I knew vaguely where the hotel was located, so I started to take notice when the nav directed me to the opposite side of the freeway.
Six miles later, the nav politely announced I had arrived at my destination.
I looked around. No Four Seasons in sight. There was a small Ventura County fire station a few hundred yards away, but I doubted they had a spa.
The Murano's maps run on an SD card, and a quick check of the Nissan website confirms that we're running the latest map update (the site advises us to check back after a year of ownership for a new update).
After using my phone to look up the street address, I entered it into the nav and again drove in search of the hotel. I backtracked several miles, crossing back over the freeway to where I thought I should be headed in the first place.
Sometimes, you just need to trust your own instincts.
