Android GPS navigation got me lost

My phone was not able to tell me that I took a wrong turn, so I went 20 miles out of my way.

Certainly, part of the problem is that our needs a wireless network to figure our where it is. Thus, when you are lost in the boonies, you are really and truly lost!

I turned on my 11 year old Garmin GPS and, despite the fact that half of the exits had changed since the maps were published, it put me exactly where I needed to be.
