"There's plenty of roads on Google maps that are in the middle of farmer's fields."

When cartographers make maps, they add in tiny insignificant fake features as a sort of signature so they can tell if someone plagarizes their work.

Use Waze all the time (when in service area). It's been rock solid for me in many questionable situations for routing. We were coming back from Ruby and it told me to get off of 70 onto 6 for a stretch. At the time I was going 80+ on i70 and I thought Waze was whacked.

Turns out there was a fire in the median and if I had listened to it, I would have saved myself 35+ minutes.

maybe people will learn to think for themselves again?
on second thought, I doubt it. if their phone can't do it, they are lost and blame the phone. they never blame the fact that they are ignorant and couldn't find their way out of their own driveway without an app.

I wanted to know how long it would take. My TL was a hard ass for early shuttles.
