Yes, I am fully aware that far too many of us are far too reliant on GPS systems when we travel. Most people probably don’t even carry maps in their cars anymore. I know my parents don’t (haha). That said, these systems aren’t completely fail-proof.

Last week, I asked you guys for your worst GPS-fail stories. How many hundreds of miles did you go before you realized your mistake? Did it direct you straight into a bog? An abandoned steel mill?

For me, it’s a constant battle between what the GPS tells me to do and what I think is right. Usually, that doesn’t end well for me. I’ve learned that you either listen to the GPS or you don’t. If you improvise, you usually end up tacking on hours to your trip.
