Get Gas Soon, Stupid!
Australian police recently warned people not to blindly follow the Apple iPhone’s maps application. Why the plea? Several drivers followed directions from the program and needed to be rescued after straying too far from a filling station.
Make no mistake, this isn’t an indictment of Ford’s navigation system. But that anecdote underscores how important refueling on time can be.
While the system isn’t smart enough to anticipate drivers too stupid to stop themselves from driving irrevocably into the desert, it will warn your teen sooner than normal about a low gas tank.
