Right, that's why I asked where you were heading to and what the routing 
suggestion looked like. Was the Garmin unit configured to 
auto-recalculate, and was there some bad coverage (tunnels) that caused 
it to "jump" somewhere else and back? Or could there be some error in 
the map data elsewhere, such as disconnected ways or oneway arrows going 
head-to-head or back-to-back?

Can you download the region around your route and compile it with mkgmap 
with logging enabled? Does it complain anything relevant?

I do not travel by car that often. A year or two ago I remember a 
similar situation where a split way was merged. There was some error in 
the map data at that point, but I cannot remember what it was and cannot 
deduce it from the history of the ways. FWIW, it probably was node 
27536320 at lat=60.4558175, lon=24.8496977, and I was heading west.
