Men are More Likely Than Women To Ignore Their GPS
The old stereotype that men won’t ask for directions is evolving with the times. These days, men still won’t ask for directions . . . and, apparently, won’t listen to a disembodied voice giving them directions either.
According to a new survey, men are more likely than women to ignore directions from their GPS device. Women will follow the instructions even when they’re almost positive the GPS is wrong . . . men won’t.
83% of men say they REGULARLY overrule their GPS when they think it’s wrong. 74% of women say they overrule it . . . but not as regularly.
Overall, 79% of drivers say they’ve overruled their GPS at some point.
63% keep a map around just in case the GPS steers them wrong.
When a GPS gets the directions wrong, it leads you an average of 5.9 MILES out of the way.
60% of women admit they’ve gotten into an argument about whether or not to follow the directions from the GPS.
