    Guys...
    For those who travel the NJ turnpike... I found a glitch...
    TT1 wants you to take the car lanes, not the truck lanes.
    It will make you get off at every exit, pull a u-turn before the tolls and then get back onto the car lanes.


    Also on the Long Island Expressway, there is a "HOV (high occupancy vehicle)" lane. They use specific entrance and exit points. As you approach every entrance, TT1 advises you to "keep right" This could be confusing for those where a true exit is approaching.

    Both of these become a nuisance as you travel because you can't judge when your exit truly is.

    Just an FYI.

    5 into 3

    If you travel south on the NJTpk the Car and Truck lanes merge into 3 lanes at exit 8A - usually a big backup too :mad:...when you travel north the opposite is true. While this might be a an inconvenience, it's only temporary. :)

    Now the tollbooth dilemma is something else! :confused:

    strange, because the garden state pkwy is a divided road - express and local - and my One doesn't care which side you take.
