gps...

global positioning system
...containing maps which are displayed
in human readable format
...providing suggested directions to a human in
charge of a vehicle or vessel
yarrrgh!
there be pirates ahead on my gps!

Beautiful! I am one of those people borned with zero sense of direction. Two years ago, out of total pity, my daughter bought me a GPS for my car. It has been one of the most liberating things in my life!!! I can go ANYWHERE now.
Best,
Susan

My husband and I have decided we're the perfect team. He can't find his way out of a paper bag but is an excellent driver. I've got a 6th sense for directions...so he drives and I navigate!!
