GPS: Fail!

Do you have a GPS system in your car? Do you rely on it?

Sometimes, technology isn't all it’s cracked up to be.A motorist armed with a GPS navigation unit, one of those devices which tells drivers which way to turn, failed — and badly — Tuesday morning, setting up what would be an eight hour ordeal in Langlade County’s wooded western edge.

That is too funny. It makes sense, though, that if you can't trust Google maps, you can't trust GPS.

Those free maps that states give away seem to work for me.

But, I know how to read a map, so I do have a bit of a lead on a lot of people I know.

I like old-fashioned maps myself, so much so I mounted one in my garage.
