Then you probably never used GPS for navigation in Thailand 😉

 

In this case here, there was probably a U-turn above the underpass and the system told the driver to U-turn there.

But the driver didn't understand this and the system failed to understand that the driver is in the underpass.

Or there probably isn't. If it the underpass i know.

I have used one in Thailand, but not in the urban situation. Your explanation does make sense. Thanks

Except in that location there isn't one.

 

In your best GPS lady voice?  "You are on the fastest route, now stick your head in a gas oven" 

I don't know if there is one or not, because Google streetview doesn't have current pictures yet.

But if i ask Google for a route, suspecting that Google assumes i'm on the regular road and not on the the underpass lane, then Google tells me to U-turn exactly at the point where the car on the picture tried to U-turn:
