We've all gotten lost at some point trying find some place we've never been to before and it certainly goes without saying that we waste a lot of gas driving around aimlessly trying to figure out where we are. A new study in Britain estimates that drivers there waste 812,500 gallons of fuel a year thanks to getting lost. Given that the study was funded by Becker, a manufacturer of vehicle satellite navigation systems, it makes perfect sense that their solution would be to use a navigation system to avoid unnecessary turns. If only built-in systems weren't typically $1,000+ options, they might even make financial sense.
