Submission + - Couple stranded 3 days after GPS leads them astray (nwsource.com)

fahrbot-bot writes: A couple's SUV gets stranded in deep snow for three days on a remote Forest Service Road after they blindly followed the directions from their GPS-enabled cell — don't worry, they got rescued using the very same phone. Now, I don't have any GPS devices — I use printed maps (ask your parents) — and am curious about the circumstances. Have or would you blindly follow your GPS unit — anywhere?
