The English GPS units finally arrived at the other vendor on base. We took our Seoul guide book, our electric bill (for our address) and the brochure from the tap studio to see if the vendor could show us how to program things. He said that the address on our bill was the mailing address, but not what we needed to find it in the GPS. Same with the info on the brochure and in the guidebook. In other words, you need to know the area you are going, or the full description in order to use the GPS. Well, if we knew the area, we wouldn't need the GPS. No one seems to be able to explain how addresses work here. So for $540, we passed. I think I will just have to start driving around with people who know where they are going and build my knowledge that way. Even Americans who have been here for years are no help. They don't know the highway numbers. They just drive. Frustrating. I need to write proper directions as I figure things out to help others.
I hope to drive my new friend, Ji-Young to Heyri Art Village on Monday. She will show me where the IKEA is and then go to her art class. I will increase my driving knowledge to three places!
