In addition to helping lost souls find their way, I recently discovered that GPS devices can also help hungry folks find sustenance.
My mom recently bought a gorgeous new ride that came fully equipped with a super-advanced GPS system. While in San Diego for a short visit, The Astronomer and I took her car for a cautious spin. While we were driving about, I noticed that the on-screen map included little icons of Mexican, Chinese and American flags.
Curious as to what they symbolized, I touched an icon with my fingertip. Voila—a restaurant name appeared! How cool is that? However, when I touched the “info.” icon next to the eatery’s name, nothing happened. I hope that in the future, restaurant reviews from Yelp or Gayot or gas•tron•o•my will appear when the information icon is pressed. That would be bomb.
Have you ever decided where to eat by using a GPS system?
