Couple goes woefully astray following GPS directions

At some point, you have to wonder when common sense was replaced with sheer stupidity naivety. A couple of Swedish tourists visiting Italy took a 400-mile detour on their way to the isle of Capri. Instead of entering the name of that lovely island into their GPS, they accidentally typed "Carpi," a not-so-lovely city 400 miles away from Capri. Instead of questioning the detour, they drove all the way to the industrial town in northern Italy, without even questioning the fact that they never took a ferry ride or crossed a large body of water.

We've all been in a situation where we question the accuracy our GPS devices. But, how far do you go before you double-check it, or just shut the damn thing off?
