Belgium Women Goes 900 Miles Out of Way Due To GPS Unit

Put too much faith in technology and you may wind up in Croatia. A 67-year-old woman from Belgium learned that the hard way after she followed (faulty) directions from her GPS device.

The woman only wanted to go about 90 miles from her hometown of Hainault Erquelinnes, Belgium, to pick up a friend at the Brussels train station. Her GPS device sent her about 900 miles to the south before (during the second day) she realized that something was amiss. It’s unclear if she entered the address incorrectly or if the GPS was faulty. I was distracted, so I kept going. I saw all kinds of traffic signs, first in French, then German and finally in Croatian, but I kept going because I was distracted. Suddenly I appeared in Zagreb and I realized I wasn’t in Belgium anymore.

Women swears she will never use GPS unit as a crutch again..
