Completely agree. I spent 18 months in Ireland and by the end of that time I had almost convinced my boss to give me addresses for jobs rather than pages and pages of directions, most of which made no sense to me, as a foreigner.

Oddly, while most of the Irish I met don't, and never have had, maps in their cars (and couldn't really explain why not) they were completely happy to get and blindly follow GPS devices. (Often up dead-end streets, if my experience is anything to go by.)
