Their New York to Los Angeles trip is interrupted by an emergency in Tucson, Arizona. Going through Tucson is not mentioned in the movie and adds over 200 miles to a normal NY-LA route.

After leaving NY, Jane and Robin appear to drive an entire day & then spend the night in a motel. There, Robin mentions to Jane that in order to get to Pittsburgh by noon the following day, they'll need to leave by 8:00am. Pittsburgh is less than 6 hours from NY which means they would have only driven 2 hours on the 1st day before stopping to stay overnight in a hotel.
