Yeah, I've always wondered about the logic in those route-finding programs ever since the time I tried (just out of curiousity) to see what it would give me as the best route from my home (a ways south of Reno) to San Jose. Instead of the direct and obvious route (395 South to Calif 88) It told me to drive half an hour north and get on I80 west, thus adding at least 50 miles and an hour to the trip.
