Funny Navigation Instructions

So I used my nav today to see how it operates. Shame the electronic sounding lady's voice is not as nice as the E90's real lady's voice.

I do love the nav instructions on the HUD, complimenting the screen map, however, the lady instructs me to turn left into S33 or S20 and North Rd, Brighton is called Monash Hwy. Interesting.

No, I'm not mistaking the instructions as 'to Monash Hwy". Besides, it's the Monash Fwy and it is accessed from Wellington Road, Clayton. Now not all roads are called 'S' roads, just main arterial roads. Most roads, however are labelled correctly on the HUD.

More investigation necessary.

Any one else have interesting experiences with their nav & HUD?

The system favors traffic lights over kilometers. Eco/fast route is never the fastest route.

I think the s stands for State, as in State route 20 etc.

Nuvi GPS took me through here at 9:30pm on a work call last Friday night, the track kept getting narrower with no way to turn around - cutting through the mountain fire trail as the shortest route

My dad has an X3 with business nav and gets some traffic (i think roadworks) info on his I've noticed, but my f30 with Pro Nav can't? Does anyone have an idea why?
