GPS leads man off cliff
A MAN who died in a New Year’s Eve cliff fall after becoming lost in the Kanangra-Boyd National Park was believed to be following directions provided by a GPS satellite navigation device when he went over the edge.
The 31-year-old Toukley man had been searching for a walking track in the national park, near Oberon in the state’s Central West, when he fell.
Inspector Steve Hall from Bathurst police said yesterday the group was believed to have been using the GPS device but it was unclear who had been carrying it at the time of the accident.

Sure, he wasn’t in a car, but still. Perhaps a cleverly disguised BETA test?
