Are GPS devices making us lose our sense of direction?

By cookie . Created on 11 May, 2019
Turn left 300 metres, Turn right 500 metres, You are at your destination....... Is relying on GPS devices taking away our sense of direction? If you used a GPS to get there, could you turn it off on return journey and safety navigate back home? Are you remembering the directions to recall them later or just relying on the GPS to guide you back ? Please comment below

Peoples sense of everything is lost. I used to work as a mobile security, always used a street directory or land marks etc to get around, once they bought in gps, it made the job harder as I couldn't take short cuts etc to get to alarms, it was all logged and uploaded at the end of the week. People have become lazy to technology.

Yes, I have a good sense of direction but in new areas I have used GPS and it has made me lost. I still carry a street directory just in case.

I have to say we have one but it annoys the daylights out of me. I like to find my own way and if I get lost I will try it.

I voted yes (for the majority of people anyway). Many people automatically use GPS just for simple routes now. The same way that many people have to rely on an electronic map on their phone for walking around.

I can read maps well, and visualise a route in my head. I have never had need for a GPS.
