LANGLADE, Wis. – A motorist relying on a GPS navigation unit found out the hard way
that technology is not always the answer.
Sheriff’s officials said the Oshkosh woman was going from the White Lake area to Laona
through heavily wooded Langlade County Tuesday when the best routing from the GPS
sent her onto a road that forked into a snowmobile trail.
Several miles down the frozen path she stopped and couldn’t turn around in about a
foot and a half of snow surrounding the car.
