A wrong turn almost cost a man his life after his rental car got stuck on railroad tracks in San Diego. The man says his GPS guided him down a road that led to the tracks. Unfortunately, other drivers have reported being lured into this same death-trap before.

Sure hope he didn't decline the insurance on that rental car.

I do NOT use a GPS unit.  I use MAPS - the latest versions that I can guy at WalMart or K Mart or Target.  I pull over, and FIND where I am going THAT way.


For me GPS is a killer

I never go anywhere without my gps unit, and I use it everyday.  But since it obviously isn't infallible, for a variety of reasons, people are foolish not to use common sense and be aware of their surroundings.  I don't have much sympathy for this dope.
