The electronic brain

Having the GPS has been marvelous but sometimes it's behaviour has been erratic to put it mildly. There was one particular section between Rauzan and St. Emilion just as one crosses the dordogne river where I think the maps and the position were all out of kilter because it had us ploughing through fields or swimming in the river or driving down the wrong street and it took a little while to figure out exactly what was going on and when to ignore the instructions and when not to. At one point, the voice stopped giving instructions because we had made so many wrong turns that I think it went into a sulk.
