Maybe a dozen years ago, I had a GPS unit do just that--it got stuck in 
a 'loop' when I missed an interstate exit. It had me exit at the next 
ramp, get back on the interstate going the opposite direction, then off 
at the next exit and head back in the original direction. It is a 
testament to my intelligence that I only followed its directions for two 
loops before I decided to ignore it (on the third loop). I read after 
that that early GPS systems were prone to that sort of thing.
