Well it's a big difference. Imagine a very long street as one piece, 
only split by one traffic light. Here the mechanism will completely 
fail. On the other hand, it could also only change for a few meters, 
again fail. In general it works well though. Unluckily Garmin hasn't 
foreseen time penalties based on POI. (there exist realt time penalties, 
but only for turning WHEN changing the street...).
