    The car knows that you are still on break in and ain't getting after it. The IPhone thinks you are a REAL HELLCAT driver and is calculating Warp Speed!

    My iPhone is better at tracking current traffic speeds and other obstacles that the car navigation doesn't take into consideration. That is what I have found anyway. I finally gave up on navi in car and used my iPhone when I was out of state. o_O If I had that part to do over, I would not order the navigation, waste of money with phones now days.

    The answer is simple. The two different GPS / Map programs are using different routes. If you check the programs, there are are options for faster, shorter, toll road avoidance, etc. The routes of which you write may look the same, but obviously they are not. I'll bet that the programs are configured differently. The other variable is your iPhone is probably using Google Maps (FWIW I also use CoPilot GPS on my iPhone as well - one time fee and maps updated quarterly for free!) and the Hellcat system is Garmin I believe. Don't sweat it! You're not trapped in some time warp or infinite loop! Wait...what's that high pitched, three note, guitar scale going up and down....over and over....and over? I see some guy with dark hair, puffing heavily on a cigarette....he has a deep voice. Rod? Rod...is that you? :cool:

    Nope they were using same route. When I was 12 hours away, they were nearly 2 hrs apart. Now that I am 4 hrs away they are only 13 min apart. The iphone is way more accurate. It's been saying 1230am arrival all day and it's gonna nail it. Team iphone
