It is common that when we go on a trip or want to reach a destination that we do not know exactly, we activate Google Maps in Android Auto for the system to guide us to our destination, but it will not have been the first time that Google He has taken you to a place that you had not asked for.
Well now due to an error Google Maps In Android Auto, a town in La Noguera is overwhelmed every day by a bunch of disoriented tourists.
The original story has been seen on TN Comarcas on TV3, and has also been picked up by sites such as RAC 1.
Specifically, this Google error affects the town of Vilanova de l’Aguda in La Noguera, and the problem with Google’s Android Auto is that it indicates a shortcut that goes through the town to go to Andorra, but in reality it is a paved road that the only thing it does is save three minutes from the route and that is poorly signposted.
According to the mayoress of the town, Montserrat Fornells“the avalanche of cars causes the inhabitants of the municipality to not be able to walk, there have even been various anti-civic acts against the residents”.
This is the problem with the app
The problem is that when the GPS is programmed with the coordinates of the shortest and fastest route, it takes you to this town, and specifically on a paved road where many cars coincide.
The mayoress explained that the error has been marked, a fence has even been put up to block the way for tourists, but she says that there are even people who skip the signs and pass anyway.
The option they are trying is to claim Google to make this change within the application and eliminate this route, but for now they have not received a response.
In this way, you should not look at 100% of all the instructions that a computer program can give you, in this case Google Maps in Android Auto.
