We have all heard the old cliché about men hating to ask for directions.
Perhaps men try to avoid that feeling of defeat by using GPS systems. So much so, that they are using them 14 percent more often than women.
According to a recent study conducted by the Australian insurance company AAMI, 64 percent of male drivers utilize the assistance of a navigation system, while only 50 percent of women do. Granted, this survey was conducted for Australians, but the results were still unexpected.
An AAMI representative said the company “thought it would have been a little more even and maybe even slanted in favor of women,” and went on to say the results as a whole were “surprising.”
