Learning directions

There are places I go to that I need GPs no matter how many times I go there. I miss one left or right and screw up my entire route. Last week I started out for the Bronx and did not put on the Gps. My friend said you should go the other way. I said no because we have to get to 241 street before that street. She began to put in the GPs and it turned out I was right even going my own way. I think I am learning my way to that location since returning home I did not need GPS. I hope to learn my way to Central Ave without thinking too hard. I always forget the exit.

My youngest daughter prefers to follow her insticts that to accept the GPs instructions. She is usually right.

Yes, it is good to learn the directions without the help of gps or other apps

Generally, our GPS works well, but sometimes when I am just using it for time and distance to get somewhere, I can see that it makes mistekes, which it should not.

The route going to my daughter's house is like following a zig-saw puzzle! Jay zips around it like a pro and me, I'd end up heading in the opposite direction!

GPS is a great tool for getting there the first time. But yeah, you should be able to remember where it told you go the next time, and the time after that. Sometimes I actually think I rely on it a little too much.

That's really nice. I normally don't need the gps when I'm driving but I go to places that I'm already familiar with.
