I'm extremely grateful to be living in a time where GPS exists, as no matter how much I would write down directions and even draw a map, I have poor concentration when driving (as in, I need to focus a lot on the road and reading signs), so looking down to read and make sense of instructions etc didn't help unless I pulled over. And I would forget street names and when to turn etc, and god forbid there were roadworks and I had to turn somewhere I hadn't counted on.

Now, I still look up an address on google maps, 'travel' there with the street view so I know in advance what landmarks/ potentially confusing spots to look out for, and then write instructions in case of GPS malfunction.
I plug the address into the GPS, and then hope it sends me the same way as what I've looked up. ;-)
If not, I trust the GPS, even though it has on occasion sent me down dirt tracks, when a perfectly good sealed road was just nearby...
I can honestly say that without my GPS, I wouldn't have travelled anywhere near as much as I have in the past. :-)
