Navigation System Woes

When on a road where there is another road traveling the same direction immediately next to the road you’re on, does your navigation system ever ‘think’ you’re on the other road, not the one you’re actually on?

And when it finally realizes you’re on the wrong road, instead of having you continue on the wrong road so to merge with the correct road ahead, does it route a detour adding miles and time to your trip?

I keep mine set to “Efficient”, but this happened last night when rushing to an event. Instead of listening to the system, which added 20 minutes to my ETA, I stayed on the road, as I saw it followed the same path the correct road did (when zooming out of the map) and luckily came upon a ramp seemlessly merging the two roads!

The fact the system couldn’t recognize which road I was on is less troubling than it adding miles and time when same was not necessary.
