A 23-year-old Canadian woman recently found out not to trust the GPS directions.

Today, most motorists are at the mercy of the authoritative voice of GPS technology.

A 23-year-old Canadian woman recently found out not to trust the GPS directions.

According to a report in the Toronto Sun, the woman was following a route on her car’s GPS while driving in the dark on a foggy night in Ontario when it directed her to drive onto a boat launch.

The woman ended up in a lake.

The vehicle completely submerged in the icy water.

The woman, however, was able to wind down her window and escape without any injury.

“She’s in really good spirits,” said Constable Katrina Rubinstein-Gilbert.

The constable added that the woman of course is “a little embarrassed.”

This is not the first time GPS navigation has led drivers astray.

In 2012, a group of Japanese tourists visiting Australia followed their GPS into the Pacific Ocean.
