Woman Drives for 900 Miles Instead of 90 Thanks to GPS Error

I’ve read plenty of crazy GPS stories, but this has to be the craziest of them all: a 67-year-old woman drove for 900 miles over the course of two days because of a GPS error combined with her complete lack of attention. Her actual destination was only 90 miles away.

:iagree::clap::iagree:

*(this sounds amazingly like my ex-wife)

One would have thought she would have gotten a clue when she was control checked at all the border crossings - or maybe crossing the [B][I]ALPS[/I][/B] would have given her a clue-eh!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

IMO, the GPS device doesn’t make errors. It is the input that is given to it and/or the settings of the device that cause these problems 99.999% of the time. If this woman can’t tell she went 810 miles out of her way then she has no business driving at all.

GPS doesn’t make error unless you are in Australia using apple maps :bigsmile:. Still its her fault for being too immerse in the GPS. I also look at street signs, etc when using gps.
