I made the mistake of trusting the GPS rather than going the way I have always used to go past downtown Miami and I ended up following a twisted route which took me to the frigging location where the Democrat candidates are having their debates.
And no, the young lady holding the Biden sign is not embarrassed, she is just protecting her face from the sun. I think it was almost ten-ish and in the 90s already.
I am gonna have a word with the GPS app and get some shit straight. Can’t continue being woke if it wants to remain in my phone.

Does your GPS rely on Google Maps for the base maps layer?
And, curious why there is only one person in the pic? A Trump event would have had a line by now. Or do the Dems sell tickets to attend their debate?
That is the line.
Democrats control tightly all presentations. If it is not scripted, it does not happen
No idea. It says it downloads maps to be available off line, but not from where
HERE WeGo – City Navigation
If you are running HERE we go, it does not rely on Google Maps. There are several apps that are just “overlays” of Google Maps and take the place of the navigator module. HERE we go has its own mapset.
So, conspiracy theory shot down. (Unless Nokia, the parent company of HERE we go is a leftist company.)
Phone based GPS and associated mapping software, e.g. Google maps, is very convenient – usually mostly up to date re road construction, searchable destinations, traffic alerts, etc. and all on a multifunction device I usually have with me anyway. There is a price, however, well above that I pay to Verizon every month to get these benefits.
Somewhere I have an older Garmin … Worse to nonexistent routing, no live traffic, maps don’t update, etc. But it doesn’t send my search data and route preferences to the cloud. At this point the value I place on not being datamined is starting to approach the value I place on convenience, to the point I’m at least starting to look for the thing. And of course as a standalone it would be much harder to mess with the routing algorithms.

Download the maps you want for free. They are NOT Garmin maps, they are open source. But, I used them in Europe, and they did not fail me at any time.
You will not get live traffic, construction, or any of that, but you will get where you are going.
Ever since I located that site, my smartphone map navigator system stays off.
Very cool, thank you!
