Death By GPS: Can Too Much Technology Kill You?

Any GPS can be wrong and provide inacurate information.

Can too much technology in the  backcountry be dangerous? Can you depend on GPS and other electronic  devices and technology  to the point of  it becoming deadly?
That seems to be an increasingly recurrent pattern of  behavior in  some parts of the country, as the following story: “Death By GPS’   indicates.
Whenever I see a particularly interesting or, in this case,  disturbing story related to land navigation, I forward it for comment  and analysis to land navigation expert Blake Miller.
Here are Blake’s thoughts on  “Death By GPS” by  Tom Knudson, and published in the Jan. 30, 2011 “Sacramento Bee.” (To  read the rest of the story, click here.)
