They're upside down in Australia so it's no wonder the GPS had problems.

Skywolf Philosopher: Hahaha, the other dude was speeding cause he was low on gas! I don't think that's going to fly with the police.

Maybe he thought he would get better gas mileage.

Our GPS tried sending us down Footbridge Way.

Our car wouldn't fit so we turned around.

Suckmaster Burstingfoam: Yet another strike against the concept of the self-driving car.

On the plus side, the tendency of the sheeple to rely on GPS units and websites to tell them how to get to their destination, and the tendency of these devices to just stick you on the largest highway, means that the county roads are almost empty. If you're good with a map you can exploit this. Has anyone else noticed this?

I tried that last summer by messing with the settings on my GPS. It sent me on the narrowest, most harrowing windy mountain road I've ever driven on. There definitely was little traffic - probably because the locals knew what s deathtrap it was.
