McNeill is open to Marsh Bend.

Pretty quickly if you use Waze and send them updates. It is a process, but by making a number of drives on the road and identifying it, a Waze editor can update the maps that Waze and Google use.

We are new to The Villages and getting acclimated. We didn't know there were 2 GPS apps. What is the difference between the paid app from the free one we are currently using?

Reading about all these new roads, villages and rec centers leaves me completely baffled. Living in village of Bonnybrook (near 466 and Buena Vista) for the last 20 years didn't prepare us for the explosion of homes that The Villages now has. We purchased the first lot south of 466 in Sept 2003 when the population of The Villages at that time was about 33,000. There was no Sumter Landing, just dirt and roads much like is found now in the Eastport area. Pretty easy to get lost in The Villages now . . . thank goodness for GPS.

You can either go up Corbin to the Marsh Bend MMP or take McNeill all the way to Marsh Bend and get the MMP there. Both are open now

The opening put a lot of extra stress at the Citrus Grove gate crossing. What were they thinking placing the gate 300 ft from the crossing?

A half dozen carts were backed up on both sides trying to get across Meggaison.

I often see that many carts waiting to cross Hillsborough and Pinellas (right by the gates on Morse) on a regular basis...

That said, I agree that the cart crossing should be closer to the gates...

Noticed that too yesterday. Hopefully everyone will get used to a lot of carts coming from both sides!

It was more of a problem we noticed around happy hour. But I agree people will get used to it...

No wait when we went back through later also.

But earlier was a mess, the cars would drag race from the gate to the merge at the cart crossing.

Crossing from the south, we turned right and made u turn at Roudell.

Still not as ugly as ST Charles crossing at times there are 10 plus carts both ways trying to cross, and the cars are backed up on BV. Plus has the most amount of down gates in the area.

Citrus grove gate today had us and one cart. But totally agree that space from gate to crossing gives the lawn guys a running start at golf carts

I agree. Those crossing can be terrible. There is a lot of talk about the Meggison crossing, but it really is not bad. Especially when compared to other crossings.

I do wonder why they decided to place the cross away from the gates. Different from all the others. And I wonder if it will be moved in the future.
