    And that is based on my experience representing GPS manufacturors when they were sued anytime one of their units was in an airplane that crashed. They always came up with some BS theory that the accident had been caused by a malfunction of the GPS. That is why avionics are so expensive, litigation costs for BS lawsuits.

    GPS was just the excuse used by a careless driver.

    When my son was born more than 25 years ago, I was going home around midnight after being at the hospital with my wife during labor/delivery since early that morning. I encountered a car stuck on the tracks because the driver had turned onto them thinking in the dark that it was a road. Since there was someone there already helping her, I just drove on. Then I realized that since her helper was not having much success that the car might still be there when a train came by and the noise of the crash might disturb my sleep.
    I checked to make sure that I had my chain in my International Travelall and went back, gave one end of the chain to the helper to attach to the stuck car and then I hooked the chain to my trailer hitch. I pulled the car sideways off the tracks. She drove on her way and I went home to sleep.
