Anonymous, NS (2016 Toyota Camry XLE 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"Clumsy to use. To turn off the GPS: select a destination. Then on another screen, delete it. As a safety feature our home address is not accurate. When we don't go thru the turn-off sequence above and the GPS starts up when the car is started. The GPS constantly tries to guide the car back to home. This isn't a problem for us, but family members who borrow the car can be driven crazy by the constant verbal commands to return home. The whole system is needlessly cumbersome. A further ann"
