Has Your GPS Ever Led You Astray?

I have a handful of friends who swear their lives depend on their GPS Where is the concert venue? Where is that new Indian restaurant? Just ask the GPS they say . . . and they put the car in drive.

The problem is, the GPS isn't always right. It can send you on routes through sketchy areas, down one-way streets, and occasionally to the wrong street. Yesterday's New York Times featured a story "Turn Back. Exit Village. Truck Shortcut Hitting Barrier," that noted many people in small towns in Britain get led astray by "navigation devices that fail to appreciate that the shortest route is not always the best route."

Have you ever had this problem in small towns or areas with new construction? Or is your GPS on track all the time?
