Yeah the early ones were pretty lame I lived about 4 miles from work and when I got my first one just for kicks thought I would let it lead me to work, same thing wanted me to make a wrong turn and then who knows what would have happened. The new one I just got was from a truck stop, was on sale and is pretty danged accurate.

Five Germans in an Audi Quattro arrive at the Italian border.
The Italian customs officer stops them and tells them:
"Itsa illegala to putta 5 people in a Quattro!"
"Vot do you mean, it's illegal?" asks the German driver.
"Quattro means four!" replies the Italian official.
"Quattro iz just ze name of ze automobile" the Germans retort unbelievingly.
"Look at ze dam paperz: Ze car is dezigned to carry 5 people!"
"You canta pulla thata one on me!" replies the Italian customs officer.
"Quattro meansa four. You havea five-a people ina your car and you are therefore breaking the law!"
The German replies angrily "You ideeiot! Call ze zupervizor over! ... Schnell! I vont to spik to zumvun viz more intelligence!!!"
"Sorry" responds the Italian, "He canta comea ... He'sa buzy witha two guys in a Fiat Uno."
But seriously: If that really is the law in Italy, Citroën can't expect to sell a lot of C-Zero's[^] there
