We got a new toy recently. A GPS. With this toy, as you can imagine, we’ve been doing a lot of driving to faraway places recently. Haha. Just to test it out.
It asked us to turn right at a no right turn. It wanted to make us make a U-turn when we know roughly that the way to go is forward. It refused to take us to our destination. It kept on wanting us to turn back!
It took us to Jalan Hulu Kelang in Shah Alam when we really wanted to go to Ulu Kelang in Ampang. It wanted to take us to some other place called Taipan in Klang when we really wanted to go to Taipan in USJ Subang Jaya.
It led us round and round and round on a wild goose chase. Still, its really interesting and we like it. The verdict is… it helps some but you should still have a general idea of the place you want to go. You should also make sure that the map is taking you to right place as there are many similar street names.
I am still thinking whether I should get it or not? Did you do any research on which model is the best?
Michelle, I think it is useful. If you are thinking of getting one you should definitely do a research. I did not because it came with our other new toy. 😉
Oppss…was it that BAD??? It sounds more like misleading than guiding the right way…
Hubby bought one few months back and it has been very accurate. We even use their food list recommendation to look for food that we never try before. So far so good though… Also, it also help us to find an alternative way out to the destination when we were stuck in a massive jam..
Wow! Yours sound a lot better. You must tell Michelle the brand. Probably, we also need to get used to it as well. 🙂 I think its safer if you have a passenger to look at it though as it can be pretty distracting for a driver even though you can hear it.
🙂 And I was just complaining about guys and their sense and direction in my latest post 😀 This must be really handy 🙂
I could not drive my car without the gps! Its such a help!
It is very useful indeed eh.
I guess have to be more specific when keying in? I am still relying on my book maps to get around! But a bit outdated already now!
Yes, we have to be more careful when keying in. 😛
