I have a Garmin GPS unit that needs to be updated – $65 for lifetime updates. I have two different map applications on my iPhone although the Google application is always telling me that it somehow doesn’t have permission to know my current location. I also think there might be a 10 or 12-year-old map of Pennsylvania in my car that I probably don’t even remember how to read because it’s been so long since I’ve looked at a paper map to get me from point A to point B.
A friend from western Pennsylvania recently came to visit. She arrived with paper directions printed from the internet and I looked at them as if they were leftover relics from the ice age because it seems as though everyone is relying on something electronic to get them from one place to another.
Admittedly, I feel more comfortable driving to, in, or around unknown destinations with a GPS. (And a phone) How about you? Do you require electronic assistance to get you where you are going or are you happier following your own directions?
