Re: MY GPS WAS STOLEN FROM MY CHECKED BAG WITH AMERICAN AIRLINES

I have to say some of the comments are pretty funny. Someone said "buy a map". I went to 3 different convenice stores today and could not find a city map in any of them. All were good sized stores right on the highway where you would expect to find a road map. As for asking for dirrections....we did that once in Dallas and half the people didnt even know where we were talking about and the ones who did either had no idea how to get there or were so bad at giving directions that we were better off just driving around and hoping we found it. I do agree that we as a nation rely to much on technology but it has become expected. I never thought I would need or want a GPS until I went to a play in Austin and used it when we got lost. When you miss your turn and are trying to figure out how to get back to where you need to be and dont have a lot of time to waste, GPS is the best thing ever invented. Mapquest cant change the dirrections for you after you miss your turn. Also, Ive never been sent the wrong way by a GPS, I have however had a brand new map that didnt have new streets listed on it and didnt tell you where the construction was going on. Ive also gotten wrong directions from Mapquest almost every time I use it.
