Woman blames GPS for turning 38 mile drive into 901 mile tour of Europe

This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. To get a few of the biggest stories as they break, follow me on Twitter. The lead image above is a map of the route taken by a woman whose 38 mile trip to Brussels turned into a 901 mile drive. Her excuse? Her GPS of course!

GPS deals page

First a housekeeping note: I’ve switched to a single page for GPS deals, allowing me to post more ephemeral sales. Deals will no longer show up in your RSS feed, but I will tweet most new deals. Right now I have deals posted for the Garmin nuvi 2495LMT, GTU 10 GPS tracker, eTrex 10 and a 20% off coupon for Garmin fitness accessories.

Our posts from the past week:
