Fun fact: GPS uses 10 bits to store the week. That means it runs out... oh heck – April 6, 2019

Hey adnim: I always backup my GPS with a map generated by Google. That way when the GPS tries to take the shortest route in Italy you are not trying to drive up or down a donkey trail in the mountains or an alley built to contain an invading enemy in the heart of a city. I own some real paper maps as well. It's fun to actually see the big picture.
