Comments: SkyNet Slips, Prematurely Exposes Portion Of Its Plan

GPS is great and I relied on it in far crappier places than a national park, especially to get a fix on current location. However, it is not magic and the map on the screen may not be ground truth, espcailly for turn by turn directions.

back when I was a navi-guesser in the navy, we always used as many nav-aids as possible. Still nothing beats a good map to tell you ground truth, and how much water under the keel.

and no technology will keep people from being stupid.

I'm a luddite apparently. I'm still using an old fashion road atlas to get around.

Navy training -
Never depend upon a single source for navigation.

With family last summer in Denver, father-in-law had a GPS device - that was not updated with the new interstate on-ramps - GPS was telling us to turn left onto service road - when the ground truth was to turn right onto onramp.

I use Google maps for trip planning.
