Can You Ever have Too Many Gps Units? Yes, You Most Certainly Can.

Crossroads is an interactive art installation that pokes fun at the whole idea of us blindly following directions given by our GPS navigation units.

Artist Garvin Nolte mounted 25 GPS nav gadgets on his windshield and dashboard, then let them all give him directions  to the same place at the same time. It’s not clear from the video if they all wanted him to go take the same route, but from my experience, I’d have to guess no. I once had a Magellan GPS tell me that I needed to drive 400 miles around Lake Michigan to go from Milwaukee to Chicago. At least it didn’t tell me to drive in the lake – that’s something, I suppose.

What I’m most impressed by in Garvin’s video is the fact that he managed to get all the suction cups to stick on his windshield for 9 minutes straight. My Garmin usually falls off on the first bump I hit.
