What Were You Doing When You Should Have Been Driving? (#29) Manipulating the Global Positioning System (GPS).
My son and I took a surf trip to Rhode Island, Mass, Conneticut, New Jersey, and New York in 2004. We hired a car with GPS installed. As we drove slowly in thick East-Coast traffic, my son helped navigate through the GPS delivered shortcuts. Lets just say, we took the back woods way (local only roads) everywhere we decided to go. In most cases we eliminated the traffic and had fun doing so. However, we missed a major East Coast swell, but we experienced some keen driving and had some serious fun.
Note: GPS works well with a navigator. Driving and manipulating a GPS system is asking for danger.
