Satnav silliness

Post by Past master » Sun Nov 11, 2018 4:52 pm

My Satnav has thrown up a nice anomaly this week.
Because there is no regular map update, the satnav doesn't know that the new A142 Ely bypass has opened.
BUT
because it gets traffic updates, it knows that the railway bridge (now bypassed) has been closed.
It has therefore decided that the whole six mile stretch of road from Soham to Ely has been closed (it hasn't).
Just to make it even more amusing, it hasn't noticed that the alternative route via the A1123 is currently closed.

Presumably this will continue until the bridge is reopened in January.
