Very rarely. I almost always know where I'm going and how to get there. I turn to gps only when I'm hopelessly lost and want to be more hopelessly lost.

I usually have it on, specially if I hit a traffic snag on the interstate. I go off on the next off ramp and plot my way back into the highway past the accident or bottleneck whichever the case.

No I do not use any electronic gadget to tell me where to drive or when to turn. I leave all that up to my brain! In the 40+yrs that I have been driving I have not got lost yet due to me not knowing where to go or what turn to make. And the best part is I don't have to worry about someone stealing it!
