Aug 2013 Queensland
- About three quarters of the way from Hervey bay to Tin Can Bay Gabbi Garmin suddenly announces our arrival at Tin Can Bay, which is interesting because we’re in the middle of a huge pine plantation and there is no ocean in sight. We turn off her life support then shock her back to reality and soon she’s back on track again and talking with her mate the satellite. Funny how these devices never say “sorry”.
- Same trip but this time we are in the new suburb of Warner in Brisbane trying to find a friend’s house. Gabbi loses it altogether and asks us to drive through someone’s back fence, time and again as we pass the same spot. Eventually we grab the phone and Google maps gets us out of yet another pickle. On arrival our hosts laughingly declare that it is indeed in a GPS black spot, geez they could have warned us!
