In the modern times, Google Maps has become quite an important part of our lives, especially of those who have to travel to unknown locations on a regular basis. Almost each one of us must have used Google Maps and it has also helped in reaching our destinations but it is also true that this is not completely correct or foolproof. Google Maps can also make errors as on one instance, a groom reached wrong venue and he almost got married to wrong bride.
Recently, one Twitter user shared an incident which happened with him when he used Google Maps and it guided him into bushes and then it asked him to turn left and drive into a mango tree.
This is what the online user wrote, “Not Google maps leading us into the bush and having the audacity to say “turn left”. Into the mango tree?”

Soon Twitterati got flooded with responses and people started sharing incidents which happened with them. For instance, one user told that Google Maps took him to a village with dead end while another user told that Google Maps took them on a bridge and asked them to turn right and jump into water.
Here are some selected reactions:

I'll never forget the day we used Google maps to travel to Calabar by road. Before we knew it, we were in one village with a dead end. Google maps said we should continue going 😭😭

Will never forget accepting a shorter route to Kpetoe via Sogakope. Beginning of road was tarred and all seemed well until the tarred portion ended and portions of road seemed like bush path/ tracks. Gone too far and it was getting late. Had to complete journey through the bush https://t.co/KP5lvbpKYl
