It is a complicated drive from Honolulu to the north shore. You can cut across the center of the island, through urban sprawl and farms. I took the long way around, driving along the coast. Lots of stop and go, narrow roads and more than a few odd turns. I didn't have Ms Garmin with me, the map from the rental car place was more interested in directing me to advertisers, then helping me find my way around the island. I used the GPS on my phone to find where I was at a couple of times. I don't find my phone an effective navigation device, the screen is too small, goes black to easily and the phone is hard to see while I am driving.
It was so worth the drive. The water changes color, the surf gets bigger. It was spectacular.
