GPS FYI should not be lefted on the dash or any devise that use's lithium battery. (I received a email saying they could explode if they were left on a dash of a automobile.

" Took the short cut, huh"

My god got me good one time sent me through a dirt bike course only damage was to my bra on out side edge. I did not win any races.
The other time I wound up on the dirt entrance of a park I was trying to go to.
I still enjoyed the laughs with my Wife went she had to get out of the Rv at night. She did have a flash light , but heard a noise that spook Her a bit.
We came up on what look like a sub-division, but saw a sign shortly after seeing the driveways mailbox's and phone box's. The sign was a warning to stay in our automobile (RV) because we were on Goverment Property.
I kept trying to think of something to say if we got stop. Who do you think would believe me if I said my GPS did this LOL I would cause mine poke me in the eye twice.
I was driving my 2000 Discovery 275 Cummins then.
My rv now is a 40 ft. Phaeton now with a 330 cat. 3 sides.

And always remember GPS doesn't take the place of common sense or intuition. How many times have folks reported being on a goat trail and continuing on despite the obvious.

And GPS does not know if you are on the ground or any of the raised highways overhead. That took me down a bike path in Washington DC once. I just commented that all these bikes seem to think they own the road when I realized I was supposed to be thirty feet above them on an elevated road!

A buddy and I were riding our dual sport bikes in the forest, and the GPS said we should continue on this dirt road to get back to the highway. The road became a 2-track trail, then a single track. GPS still said it was a 'road'. We ended up in a guy's back yard out in the boonies. He got a good laugh, and directed us back to the highway. We weren't too concerned, as we were doing an 'adventure ride', and we considered it all part of the 'adventure'! ;-)
The online news recently ran a story of a young man following his GPS at night down a dirt road. He failed to notice the 'Road ends' sign, and his SUV ended up in the river as he drove into the boat ramp. "DOH!"

It isn't the heat from the dash that causes it to explode, it is when it is left plugged in, some vehicles do not disable the cigarette lighter plug when the car is turned off, and the battery is overcharged causing it to vent. When that happens it becomes a bomb and ignites into an extremely hot flame.
I am into RC airplanes and when lithium batteries were first used for electric flight some people didn't monitor the charging and the batteries would vent and explode and many homes were burned to the ground because of it.
Best to unplug your GPS when not in use. Less risk of a fire.

If the GPS wants you to turn down a dirt road, without signs, to get to a campground, DON'T do it!!! Discovered two wonderful dirt roads this past trip. I now carry Streets and Trips on the laptop with a GPS dongle, for double checking locations.
