This one is much closer to home

A few months back I found this story on GPS Navigation, today I spotted this one, which is about 10 miles from my house

SECAUCUS, N.J. – Modern technology is steering some drivers the wrong way in northern New Jersey. Truck drivers using GPS devices and online directions to reach an industrial section of Secaucus are reaching only a road block on Fifth Street. The electronic maps don’t show a gate that separates the residential and industrial areas. It’s only open for a couple hours weekdays.

I don’t currently own a GPS, but I have been thinking about one for a while now, especially after last week when I spent twenty minutes figuring out how to get to my destination which I could see, but was on the other side of a highway.  They are obviously not perfect, but will probably help 99% of the time,  GPS sends drivers to road block

    You know I love my Nuvi and would recommend it. The best feature is the “Go Home” button – even if you can’t get where you want, you can always go home.
