totally off-topic:

 I know plenty of people that cannot do that without GPS, including myself.
Can you drive without GPS to any destination that you have visited the
last 20 years? I can't, especially not when I drove there following
the GPS.
For example, I won't be able to drive without a map/GPS to any my
holiday destinations, even not the one from last year. I cannot
remember all the turns we made during a 1000 km trip.

Some people cannot navigate back home from any town center where they
have not been before without using your GPS, especially when there are
a lot of one-way streets, so the trip back is different.
