Input hassles: Many street addresses are too long and complicated for easy text input, and voice systems often struggle to pull up the correct destination, especially if you have an accent.
Lack of accuracy: Have you ever given your navigation system an address, only for it not to be recognised, or take you to the wrong place? Perhaps you ended up at the back of a building instead of the front entrance, or at a completely different street with the same name.
They don’t cover everywhere: How many of the places you need to navigate to have no address at all? Parks, beaches, sports fields and car parks, for example, are off-limits for navigation systems.
Language barrier: Street addresses can only be used in the local language. Visitors to a country often struggle to use navigation systems, and mispronounced addresses can direct drivers far from their intended destination.
