I don't understand it. Here in Israel, guys who wouldn't dream of asking directions are turning on their GPS car navigation systems when they drive to the local grocery store!! I'm not sure what's going on but here's a clue: I don't own a car and I want a talking GPS navigation system too! My son-in-law says that his system can be switched to pedestrian mode!! I wonder if he'd let me take it out for a walk?Welcome to the future.
