Yes, I understand that Google maps is all knowing, but I know my Nav V does not have that info. What threw me initially was that this segment is 80mph all the way, yet it tells me my average speed will be 65mph ? Seems like all the static route GPS sources should be a consistent time.
Thanks David. I have a conversation going with Garmin Product support, and he is confirming the variations in estimated times. We're guessing a programming error, which may be related to the timezone change.
I've been under the impression that Garmin, the maker of my BMW Navigator V GPS has a mapping error with the speed limits out in West Texas. Garmin showed me their results, which I confirmed on my DriveAssist 51 NA, that say otherwise.
So I'm left with the possibility that all BMW Navigator V's calculate the drive time incorrectly, or my replaced/refurbished unit has a hardware problem that it's not detecting. I reloaded the latest Garmin Maps tonight, but I got the same wrong answer.
I need a few volunteers to run a test for me on their BMW Navigator V's. Go into Trip Planner and specify these two addresses as a trip, and let me know what the results are please?
2415 N. Main Street, Junction Texas

As it's a straight shot down I-10, I don't think any of the other preferences should matter.
The total distance is consistent at 421 miles.
What Travel time do you get?
Thanks in Advance.
