And we get to the big one, and probably one of the most important aspects of the race as a whole.
This is only for motorized vehicles (I am not going to include any team lost while rowing a boat).
And a general note. In most cases Teams are lost as soon as they get into a town. Usually its get directions or a map very quickly. There is only one time I am counting an occurance of a team arriving and the time it takes them to get directions or a map as being lost. It will be noted.
Teams that immediately grab a a "fern" (say at the airport), or hire a cab to follow without getting lost first are not included in this list and will be in the "Fern" section.

Not a good leg, for anyone, but a bad leg (time lost for) for Tyler & James, and one of the worst navigation legs ever for Peter & Sarah.
Tyler & James make a mistake waiting to long to get directions, by the time they get to a hotel, teams already have over 10 minutes on them (this is the one exception to the looking for directions or a map when you first get to a new country that I am counting as a navigation error)

This leg had a roadblock that was edited out of the episode. Based on local on lookers (who had photos and Videos) we can assume this take place after the detour. Since the teams arrive in the following order. Dustin & Kandice, Rob & Kimberly, Tyler & James, Erwin & Godwin, and Lyn and Karlyn (they didn't see David & Mary). This fits the order leaving the detour. They all left in the same order with the only thing they noticed was that Tyler & James made up some time of the first two teams and that Lyn & Karlyn struggled with it. But due to the edit, which included having to navigate, we are not for sure where teams might have lost time. Going to the roadblock, or going to the Pit Stop.
But somewhere after they finished the detour, Kandice and Dustin lost a sizeable lead over Rob & Kimberly and Tyler & James. What we don't know is if they got lost (my personal belief) or if they just drove painfully slow to perserve the vehicle. The reason I believe getting lost is that Erwin & Godwin get stuck with the same car for the first part of the next leg, and they apparently have no problem with it.
Special Note-James plots a course to the airport at the beginning of this leg. The course is accurate so technically he isn't lost. But it is a significant error in judgment because instead of driving the shortest distance to the airport, he was just retracing their steps from the day before (which again does get them to the sirport), but it is a significant increase in mileage.
Lyn & Karlyn break off from Erwin & Godwin to get to the airport. We do not know which one took the best route or if one of the two groups got lost.
