JS API Directions Widget Accuracy

Hello,

I would like to implement the Directions widget, but I have some reservation about the accuracy of the drive times, and directions provided by the sample service which powers the widget. For example, I am using the following troute and want to know the shortest path:

 

Start: 1400 Pike St, Marietta, OH, 45750, USA

End: 3210 State Route 345 NE, New Lexington, Ohio, 43764, USA

 

When you do this in the Sandbox for the Direction Widget Sample you get a totally different path then you would if you enter the same route for directions in Google Maps. Therefore I am hesitant to trust this ArcGIS JS API Directions Widget. Does anyone know if there is a bug here, or can anyone explain to me the logic used in the widget that is making it unable to produce a more accurate/efficient route?
