Roll down window, ask any tambay for directions (make sure he's not drunk), then proceed.....



Why Men Don't Ask for Directions: A Self-Analysis
Why men prefer to be lost than ask for directions.
Published on May 3, 2010 by Mark Goulston, M.D., F.A.P.A.

    To ask for directions is to admit I am lost.
    To admit I am lost is to feel both anxious and incompetent.
    To feel anxious is about wondering if not knowing about this is dangerously close to fears of doubts about many things.
    To feel anxious and incompetent is to feel less than and not worthwhile especially when I compare myself to other competent men.
    To feel less worthwhile than other men is to feel vulnerable to their negative regard and even scorn (to match that which I am already feeling towards myself).
    To ask other men who I project might be feeling as judgmental towards me as I feel towards myself is to invite ridicule and humiliation.
    To risk ridicule and humiliation from others for being inadequate when I am already feeling that is too much and it's easier to just fumble around and figure it out myself...

I also use Google Maps more often. So which GPS device would be handy in a motorcycle?

In any city, it is more fun to be lost as long there is gas. Will probably divert the fund for fuel instead.

But seriously, I'm using GPS only for spot that does not have any roads neither an address. There is a lot going on in the middle of nowhere.  ;)

A few months ago, my friend from Cebu went to Manila for an event. We decided to meet up while she's in Manila but she has no idea how to get around. But still we agreed to meet up and surprisingly, she managed to visit my place in a motorcyle from Cainta to Bi├▒an with guess what? A CD-R King GPS device. It came pre-loaded with free maps to any part of the Philippines, and its reliable, almost a 100% accurate, and its price is only at around P5,000. She even managed to go around Tagaytay, Splash Island and many other places. But recently, her CD-R King GPS broke down, I dunno why...

So which brand and model would you guys recommend for a motorcycle, something cheap yet more reliable than CD-R King? How much would it cost?  :)

Cdr king is only known for cheap. Don't expect reliable.

A map and my memory will suffice for me.

Learning to read a map is a vital skill.

I tried getting directions from Libis QC to Makati.  Here's what Google maps came up with for the segment up to EDSA.

It wants me to make a u-turn along Katipunan where there's no u-turn slot. It also wants me to pass thru Camp Crame to get to EDSA.
Waze got it right here.

@dragonmate

Wow super long cut.

I usually just rely on Google Maps for streets but not directions, because it's usually off.

Afaik ... Garmin with roadguide.ph map is the best combination.

With Waze, I think GPS devices are slowly getting useless.

Waze is the most reliable. Google just bought it two months ago and I think google maps, etc are already benefitting from it

Would still prefer a GPS Device that locks directly to a Satellite rather than being cellsite dependent.

I have a GARMIN NUVI 50, how much will it cost me to download Philippine map?  Can you suggest the best store where I can download the map apart from downloading it online.
