Sometimes I think I would quite like a purple line on the road to follow home from the pub.

Well they do put that white line down some roads or is that something different!

I tried that once and ended up getting a free taxi ride from a nice man in a smart uniform. Not to my home though.

So we need a different format for outward and homeward journeys.

That's how Garmin got us into this mess in the first place!
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

You mean they designed all this during a boozy lunch?
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.
