My Funny GPS Story; what is yours?

Postby Celestine » Sat Apr 28, 2012 11:32 pm

Today, I was playing around again with my car GPS just for the fun of it; used it going to work and leaving from work.

I find it funny the traffic update/function. It alerted me " Traffic Congestion at 0.6 miles" when I am already in the traffic congested area. I was like "WTH! Give me that update before I reach the traffic congested area!"

I was laughing on my way home XD

Leaving my hotel in Stockholm, I had entered the airport drop off location incorrectly and was redirected to a brothel. Fortunately I realized it as I passed the airport and asked the guy at the check in what that address was.

You must have typed in Amanda instead of Arlanda...I hear she is pretty good. Perhaps you should have followed the GPS!

There's a restaurant in the town next to mine and no matter which GPS is used (mine or my friend's) it will lead us to an empty lot. We do eventually find the real place, how, I don't know.
