Some Garmin GPS maps also only have Tempiute, and place it at the mine site in the middle of the loop road off to the right of 375 when approaching Rachel from Vegas.

Rachel was named well after Tempiute was, and some map databases just haven't figured out Rachel yet, I guess. And various GPS companies use various map databases when making their nav maps, so problems proliferate until someone catches it.

Then again, that version of Garmin maps also had the Little A Le Inn somewhere in/near Alamo! Oops, guess their problems is more than just using old data, as the Inn didn't exist until well after Rachel was named.
