Have you ever run into a problem with directions given by your GPS unit?
Recently, a 22-year-old man was burned at a party in Maryland, and another person tried to take him to the nearest medical facility. The GPS unit, however, directed them to Apple Hill Medical Center instead of a hospital. They had to call 911 for help. You can read more about what happened here.
In this day and age, many people rely on GPS units to get them places. But it doesn’t always work. A business that I went to recently in Chadds Ford, Pa. told clients not to use a GPS because it would take them to a different location. Instead, the business gave detailed directions on its web site.
And sometimes you can be going the correct way only to run into a construction project. Then you have to detour anyway.
Do you have similar stories? Are there any locations in York County where the GPS doesn’t really get you there? Has anyone stopped and asked you for directions because the GPS took the person way out of the way?
