Randy and Mary Jackson were following directions from their car's GPS navigation system when they drove down a Bureau of Land Management road, about two to six miles off of Canton Creek Road, according to Douglas County Sheriff's Office. Their Volkswagen Jetta then got stuck in the snow.

If you are southbound on Rt.95 going through New York City your GPS will usually try to divert you off the highway through the Bronx as the best route, which is insane. It's a good those things have a Mute mode. Trying to ignore it for 10 miles is very annoying.
