    Pretty accurate as long as your phone is connected, has a good GPS signal lock (much better when actively navigating) and sync isn't being blocked or killed by another app. If you're seeing a 'jump' in the route that's probably a bad lock or just missing data (think connect the dots kinda thing), but if you're seeing a definite route with turns and specific streets, then that's pretty much good data.

    Aslo check that your account isn't being used on another active device that might be adding location data to your timeline.

    Not sure which one is the one you don't usually take... the gray one? If so, it seems that the point on the 4132 label is one you seem to go to often, then it 'jumps' on that gray line, possibly just not having a GPS signal lock, and from the 'connect the dots' analogy, if you don't have enough points, the closest path is a straight line (which would produce the gray line you see there).

    The route in grey is an optional route, tap it, you'll see. The route you are on is blue.
