GPS Does Not Always Work

 

 

 

GPS Margaret Rome 410-530-2400 

 

 

With a showing on my gorgeous property at 1560 Blue Mount Road 21111 in Monkton, I had a call from the showing agent that her GPS would not take the address.

No problem...I would read her the directions from mine.  

But then ( after having my car in the shop this past week) I realized that  my GPS had been cleared of all  prior addresses.

 

 

I pulled off the road and  programed 

1560 Blue Mount 

into my GPS.

 At the same time using Google Maps,  I got the directions, took a screen shot and messaged them to the buyer's agent.  Easy peasy.

It took only a minute. No time was lost since I was already on my way and the other agent got the directions without having to write them down.

We were both on time for the 10:30 appointment at

 

1560 Blue Mount Road 21111

 

 Now I hope these lovely buyers make an offer!

That is correct and we find that happening more and more in a mountain region of TN.  Don't always count on it have a backup plan in place.

Rose Mary Justice Always have a back up plan. There are times when the GPS does not take an address and we need to go onto plan B.

Google Maps has overall been excellent and Apple's GPS has gotten a lot better. It's a matter of time for everything but new constrcution to be easily findable. Glad you got everyone to the church on time.

Well aren't you just the bomb Miss Techie!  I don't know how to do any of that stuff because I still have a "stupid phone".

Roger D. Mucci That's because you don't have to drive to farms in the mornings and give others directions. If your phone is stupid and you are smart...what does that say about all the smart phone owners?

 Good Sunday morning Margaret. You're right, GPS does not always work. Sometimes I do my best just to get close to where I need to go and fumble finger myself to the right address

You are so right.  GPS sometimes gets confused.  I have the same problem and need to rely on my iPhone for directions.  

Way to think outside the box.

I rarely use my car GPS any more - I use Waze instead, because in areas with traffic, it gives you routes by traffic volume, which is helpful.  

Way to go putting your thinking cap on this morning!

Margaret- When we lived in River Creek in Leesburg, our GPS wanted to take us past the guard gate and directly through someone's home.  Nope, they don't always work.
