A little over 7 weeks ago I was returning from London, following the sat nav to HOME from the sat nav history. I came up the slip road at junction 24, oddly on this occasion it did not direct me along a short part of the A50 and left toward Hemington and Lockington and on to Castle Donington (HOME) as it always does when traveling North on the M1 but right at the Junction 24 island into Kegworth.
Along the main road it pointed and then miraculously told me to turn right again toward where I actually live. The trouble is I was not going to either home, mine or the HOME that was set into the sat nav (from brand new and not been changed as I live close to the workshop and therefore know where I am going and never needed to change it), I was continuing on to pick up a friend of mine who I often look after as they are epileptic, which is along the A6 toward "My Charnwood" as advertised on the signs.
After picking up my friend I returned back along the A6 toward Kegworth expecting to be directed to now turn left by the (nearly got it right) mind reading sat nav, but it had reverted back to its old self and was now telling me to carry on as if going to the original HOME (set into the sat nav from the start of the journey via history and as said from new). Talk about dazed and confused, scared and not amused!
I wonder if it reverting back was anything to do with the text I sent to Opinion Outpost UK?
