News: BMW Olympic car fleet struggles with satnav routing glitches

pocketgpsworld.com
BMW has supplied a fleet of 4,000 vehicles for use in transporting athletes and officials to sporting venues during the event.

Each vehicle has been fitted with custom satnav software, the Dynamic Olympic Route System, which is supposed to guide drivers along the Olympic Route Network, the specially designated Olympic only lanes in London.

At least that is the intention. The trouble is the software has been beset by glitches and crashes which see the system default to the standard routing which has no knowledge of these special lanes.

BMW is working to resolve the issues but in the meantime, drivers are seeing their journey times in some cases double. Perhaps it might have made more sense to use drivers with local knowledge?
