Fun Fact: Beware of Your GPS!

Filed under: Fun Fact — Stephen aka DigitalEagle @ 5:32 pm

We have always thought it would be fun to give GPS systems a personality.  Rather than these nice robot sounding voices that say “Make a U-Turn at the next location”, we would laugh at something that would say, “Hey! Hey! You missed your turn!  Where did you learn to drive?  You need to be going the other direction!”

But, I don’t know if I ever would have taken it this far.  A GPS that tries to run you off the side of a mountain!?
