    You don't need GPS to drive. People use it just to know where they are going, not to drive. Before GPS, they figured out their routes before they got in the car, carried maps, and asked for directions if necessary.

    It was no big deal. It still isn't. I don't bother with GPS. No one really needs it.

    We used to use these things called maps when there was no GPS.

    You unfolded them from the size they were folded in to fit in the glove compartment.

    You then found the road you were on, and followed the roads on the map to see where you had to turn to get to your destination.

    You eitherr had to pull over and read the map yourself, or your passenger would read the map and act as your navigator.

    I didn't drive before GPS became mainstream, but people (like my dad) used to buy paper road maps, ask for directions from strangers and follow street signs.

    They had to read road signs. I still do, occasionally.

    I still haven't bothered with GPS

    If I have to go somewhere I haven't been before I check google maps, draw up a quick map, and that works just fine.

    Before the internet I used either state road maps or made notes when someone gave me directions.
