We’ve told the story before of our misadventure in San Diego when, following directions from our GPS, we took a bad turn and bottomed out the RV taking out some airlines and doing minor damage to 3 cargo bay doors. Well here’s a story about an older couple who were stranded for 2 nights after being routed down a back road by their GPS unit.
I won’t say “never” but we rarely trust the GPS any longer. In areas we’re unfamiliar with we look ahead at the route on a paper map, and we sometimes use Google maps as well. We had planned to buy a GPS for oversize vehicles. However, we probably won’t since we’re hoping to downsize soon to a much smaller RV.
Happy travels – and don’t let your GPS lead you astray!
