GPS can tell me what room I'm in at my house, it can't tell you "turn left at the rock" but it can tell you where you are on a map..
What idiots are down voting this?

How far away from your parked car do you live that you have the option of taking some nature trail to get there?

16- I suppose it would be possible for OP to be hiking, but it just didn't make sense to me that he'd be out still hiking up until roughly an hour before his shift at work


Yes but surely he knew where he had parked his car, therefore assuming that OP 1. has a smart phone and 2. had a usable GPS signal and phone signal then he could have used this to navigate to where he left his car.

You can certainly use a GPS for finding your car. You use a program like location log to mark down the latitude and longitude of where you are parked, where your deer stand is, etc. I have used that method for marking the location of our vehicle when partying, checking out street fairs, and other events. Modern civilian GPS is accurate within feet, if not inches. Certainly accurate enough for finding a vehicle if you arent blind.

#21: what you are referring to is aGPS which uses cell towers for triangulation. "traditional" GPS uses satellites which are up in orbit. Depending on your receiver, you dont even need a clear view on sky for it to work.

Some of you need to look into how people traveled before cities had nicely marked roads. Maybe try camping once or twice.
