June 3, 2019 7:51AM EDT
Whether you use Google Maps, Waze, Apple Maps, the navigation system built into your car, or your 2003 Garmin that really should be in a landfill right now . . . sometimes, they steer you wrong.
According to a new survey, the average person wastes 29 hours a year because of bad advice from their GPS.
The main ways they waste our time are by giving us confusing directions so we have to backtrack . . . picking dumb routes . . . or leading us into bad traffic.
If you average it out, your GPS is costing you around a half hour a week . . . which actually seems about right.
The survey also found 47% of us have gotten into a shouting match with our GPS even though, you know, it’s not a person and it can’t hear you.
