Question for anyone who has gone to the FedEx on Dowd.

Did a macro 19 for directions got back directions that start at Rt1&9, and some apperantly bad directions from I95 N, ( exit 4??? Seriously !!! )

Am coming in from I80 east, i have not yet settled on how to get from I80E to Rt1/9 s.

That is a huge spagetti bowl....

Anyone..... ideas ☺

In NJ I 95 is the NJ turnpike. From exit 6 to exit 18 ...I 95 below that runs thru eastern PA.

I don't have a map on me at moment but ROUTE 4 is up there somewhere near Paramus ... Giants stadium up there. Could it be exit for route 4?

Finally found it.... Exit off I80 at I280 I280 to S.R. 21 S.R. 21 to Rt 1&9 Rt 1&9 to Rt 81 Rt81 to Dowd

Now my next question is more specific to prime, how to update the directions recvd from macro 19, cause they are seriously messed up.

This is second one i would change, had one in Pheonix was wrong. Had you turn left at exit from 10w, should have been turn right at exit from 10w, or turn left at exit from 10E.

Take away, trust no map, no direction. Use multiple sources.

I don't know Larry. I used to run in Jersey all the time. Depending on what time of the day/night you'll be getting there, I'd be half-tempted to take 280 to 95 straight down to where you need to get to. 1&9 can be a mess, and I prefer interstates if it's not too out of the way. Depending on how 21 goes, your extra distance due east on 280 to get to 95 might not put you that much behind. Just a thought. Highway speed vs traffic lights is what would make me consider that.

Rerouted based on above suggestion, seems much cleaner I95W TO exit 13 which is North/Dowd st.

Yes a neater elegant solution. A little longer maybe, a toll, possibly. But neater.

To correct directions there is a macro...somewhere around macro 38 or so...just scroll thru the macros to find it.

Be very careful when you do this though. Keep in mind ppl will come from different directions so always try to use "east west north south" instead of left n right when getting off the interstate or main road. Also include the street names...I've seen plenty "make first right" and it turns out to be the second right.
