Point of interest.

While looking over the customer reviews for one of our best-selling portable navigation units, I stumbled across this amusing submission:

"My husband got a kick out of taking wrong turns to see if the GPS caught his 'mistakes.' Each time it did within seconds. I got sick of it myself and hopefully he's outgrown that game. ..."

Of course, you should verify that your new toy works properly and can get you back on track after a wrong or missed turn. But at some point, you've got to start trusting it, right? Or ask it to find you a therapist.

Seriously, though. This game is a good idea, up to point. What have you learned by trying to "stump" your GPS navigation device?
