When Your GPS Leads You Astray
Published on January 15, 2013 by Sara Foss

My parents got me a GPS for Christmas, which made me really mad. I've never wanted a GPS, and I distrust technology. But I've since warmed up to the idea. I get lost from time to time, and a GPS would probably make my life easier.

However, a recent news report about a woman who drove 900 miles in the wrong direction due to a GPS error suggests that maybe I was on to something. This story has a great lede, too: "Put too much faith in technology and you may wind up in Croatia." The horror! Anyway, there's a lesson here: Pay attention, and look at a map every once in a while.
