Nope never ever happened to me and I use mine an awful lot. It does not always choose the best route but never by 123 miles.
Are you 100% positive u did not set a Itinerary???

funnily enough, i have had similar experiences. not any where near 123 miles though. i used mine this morning to go to a job which was 9 miles away and 25 mins. on the way home it took me a completly different route which was 16 miles and 26 mins. why ? i`ll never know. doesn`t make sense to me, if the quickest route was the morning one then why on the evening did it take me another way?

i set the sat nav once to go to a race meet
but ended up 60mls away from it
but it was my fault i put in the area and unbeknown to mne there was 2 areas named the same
so maybe this is what happened
