Now here is the weird part. I never really paid attention before other than the first time this happened I zoomed out on the map just to figure out about where I was (and was surprised to find myself in another state). Today I happened to note some of the locations on the map and saw things like "Mercury Dr." and "Ford Woods Park". The words Mercury and Ford on the map? Google mapped and checked when I got into work and it turns out that this thing is placing me right in the heart of Ford-central each morning. Next time I am going to take a picture of the map and see if I can pinpoint exactly where it is putting me, at which facility exactly. Some Ford default location? Where my car was built? Where testing on MFT was done? Don't know but I have to figure it out.
Mercury Drive intersects Ford Road, Ford Woods park is off of Greenfield road north and east of Mercury Drive in Dearborn, Michigan.

There are a few Ford facilities near there, but the closest one I can think of off the top of my head is Regent Court, but there are others near there, although the Headquarters isn't exactly near that intersection (Ford Road and Mercury Dr.).

It wouldn't be near the plant, as the plant is west of there in Wayne, off of Michigan Avenue.
