Piotr, Poland – Level 3


With my wife, my 4-month-old son and I went on a holiday in 2012. At that time I had a new phone. It was a smartphone. Although the route was quite simple, I used the GPS to see how it worked. The day before the trip I downloaded the required route. It looked like you only needed a GPS signal without internet access.

We set off in the morning. We planned to travel for 7-8 hours. We drove on a side street suggested by the GPS. I thought it could be faster.

After two hours, when we were on a dirt road among cows, I realized that something was wrong with the GPS. I realized that without the Internet the road was not well tracked. We lost a lot of time trying to find the right way.

Fortunately, we had a map in the trunk of the car. The problem began later when the sun set and the child started crying. He was crying all the time and there was no way to stop him.
