    We hired a lady from out of state to take care of my mom when she had alzheimers. She loved her GPS unit, but it sometimes caused more grief than success. There were many streets that were dead ended in order to slow traffic, and she always found herself stuck in one from trusting it too much.

    LOL As a millwright of over 50 years experiance, never, never, trust a machine. It does only what it is built to do, and the real world messes with them all the time.
