According to a new survey, two out of three of us have gotten lost while driving, because our GPS gave us bad directions. Not smartphone apps, just the GPS in your car.
63% of us either got incorrect directions, or got a route that was unnecessarily complicated.
The average person has been led astray by their GPS 4.4 times, and 7% of people have had it happen 10 or more times.
That’s why nearly half of us – 46% – still keep maps in the car, just in case. Two out of five people rely on maps or printed directions instead of the GPS when we’re going somewhere unfamiliar.
Men are more likely than women to rely solely on GPS, and young people are more likely than older people.
