Are you sure the postman can find his way? Maybe you need to put the directions on the letter, just to be safe. Davidy²²[talk] 02:33, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Unless you're using Apple Maps on an iPhone 5S. Watch out for those runways. 18:16, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Am I the only one that doesn't automatically assume the GPS knows best? I always look it up anyway... especially in Houston where there are a lot of roads that the system thinks is "divided," so it will try to route you in a circuitous way to ensure you can make a right-turn in (when in reality it is totally possible to make the left turn). 15:52, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

No. In Britain GPS systems usually assume the motorways are quickest when in Britain the motorways are usually clogged.
It was 2010, so it was before when smartphones got this popular. 05:39, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

If someone insists on giving directions, listen to them; it may mean the place isn't where maps think it is, or they give a road that's not there or something. At least three addresses in my immediate family have this problem to some degree. 18:59, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Agreed: in my area, people may have adress "house X", but with "access via dead end Y" 05:30, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
